Radio Scuola Collodi. Una esperienza di web radio nella scuola primaria

Gabriele Recchia

The purpose of this work is to document an educational experience conducted in a primary school in Pisa, in which the pupils were the protagonists in the creation of a web radio. The idea stemmed from a continuous search for learning contexts that can provide a place where to differentiate learning and where students can feel free to get involved with their own aptitudes and skills. As I was teaching the disciplines of the expressive linguistic field, I needed a context which would allow me to work on the language, on the different text types, on the understanding of the text as well as on the listening and speaking skills of my pupils. I also needed this context to be among the interests of the class group and that it was really their product. Being aware of their interest in new technologies, I therefore began to explore some possibilities until I came to the conclusion that we would work in the classroom to create a web radio: Radio Scuola Collodi ( I immediately decided that the path taken would not be a parallel project to didactic planning, but that it would be our way of conducting the entire didactic planning itself. I started a shared planning process with the class group starting from key points: the awareness of the learning objectives and the skill goals to be achieved and the desire to create a cooperative learning context inspired by Freinet in which the class group was organized like a real radio newsroom.
