TILT – INCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGIES FOR YOUTH

Goal of the project

“TILT!” is an educational pathway that aims to combat educational poverty and to bring adolescents closer to the world of work. Through a “learning by doing” approach “TILT!” intends to develop technical competences on creative digital didactics and transversal skills.
The initiatives of the educational programme of TILT! intend to fill the gap in STEAM subjects and the lack of orientation activities for teenagers interested in new professions, especially digital and technological ones.

Who is it for?

The TILT! project is addressed to 46 students aged between 17 and 19 studying at the Galileo Galilei Institute in Canicattì.

Activities

The programme will be carried out through the use of the hackathon method, a collaborative event in which participants come together to brainstorm and develop innovative solutions to specific problems or challenges.

The educational pathway “TILT! Female Empowerment and Gender Equality’ is based on the ‘Challenge Based Learning’ approach and aims to raise young people’s awareness of the importance of gender equality in the world of work. The ultimate goal is the creation of a communication artefact promoting the Women’s Emancipation Principles (WEPs).

During the course, participants will have the opportunity to experiment with various technologies and tools, including Risograph, chatGPT, 3D printers and rapid prototyping, interaction tools, website development, graphic design, digital and social platforms.

The programme is divided into three main units: Learn > Practice > Reflect.

Learn: In this first phase of the programme, participants acquire the basic knowledge and methodologies needed to work independently on the proposed activity and fully immerse themselves in the topic. With the help of external experts and case studies, participants will be able to deepen their understanding of the topic and bring out the connections between the topic and the real world.

Practice: In this phase, the challenge is approached in a practical and project-oriented manner through the conception and rapid experimentation of solutions. This unit also includes a design phase, from which the actual results of the programme will emerge.

Reflect: The last phase is dedicated to celebration and reflection. As a closing “ritual”, participants will reflect on the journey made and the challenges overcome together with the facilitators to consolidate the experience and relationships established. At this stage, the work done will be presented collectively to external figures, peers or the community at large. Besides the acquisition of skills, the personal and emotional growth of the individual is a primary objective of Tilt!
