Zeranta was curator of the creation and artistic direction of La scuola digitale, the format still used today by MIUR to promote an overall strategy of innovation of the Italian school and for a new positioning of its educational system in the digital era through a series of events around Italy.
For the first three days of PNSD (the National Digital School Plan) we produced an event for 15,000 people a day, transforming the Royal Palace of Caserta into a huge multimedia laboratory open to students, teachers, principals and innovators from over 50 Italian schools to share the results achieved and co-generate the objectives for the years to come, giving space to ideas and competitions on innovation and on new skills promoted by the project: logic and computational thinking, media education, STEM and educational robotics, educational innovation, digital art and culture, innovation in the design of environments.
The event in Bologna welcomed over 400 schools, 6,800 teachers and school managers, more than 100 trainers for the 200 free training workshops scheduled as well as institutional meetings, conferences, appointments with testimonials, sharing of best practices, robotics and drone competitions, fablab, immersive reality experiences and concerts. A three-day touring program among seven spaces, an area of 3,000 square meters distributed in some of the most prestigious buildings in the historic center of the city.
In addition to the other PNSD events (in Rome, Avellino, Genoa and other cities) Zeranta was called to participate in the event Nessun Parli – Musica e Arte oltre la Parola promoted by MIUR in collaboration with the National Committee for Practical Music Learning (Cnapm). A day of reflection and celebration that has seen guests many artists and experts at the national headquarters of the Ministry in Rome with the aim of enhancing music and other arts, in their traditional forms and new digital declinations, as central elements of educational practice in schools.
