Italy: University of Palermo Launches App for Migrants

Italy: University of Palermo launched a e- learning platform that will support refugees and migrants attending academic courses. This platform will help them to learn Italian easily. 

Named Studiare Migrando (Studying while migrating), the app was developed by the Italian language centre of the University of Palermo (ItaStra) in collaboration with the Institute for Didactic Technologies of the National Research Council, and was supported by UNICEF and by the Sicily Regional Education Office.

Its goal is to support refugees and migrants learn the Italian language and consolidate knowledge of school subjects, allowing them to sit and pass the middle school progression exam.

The exam, which students can take as external candidates, is composed of three written tasks (Italian, Mathematics and Foreign language one and two) and an interdisciplinary oral examination. It allows students to progress on to high school or vocational and professional training.

The app presents teaching and learning interactive modules that can be accessed from a smart phone, or a desktop computer, though the availability of mobile devices means the course can reach many more customers on this platform.

Materials are designed to allow students to complete them on their own or with the help of non-specialised personnel and include immediate feedback.

The language centre of the University of Palermo will also make personalised support available through the app.
