Development and implementation of a didactic methodology and application software (DEPIT APP) designed on the basis of the requirements and needs of teachers experimenting with the methodology, in order to make didactic planning a useful knowledge-tool both for teachers in the general and daily planning of their classroom work, and for students to have a clear overview of their learning pathway.
The complexity of the present contexts, marked by the paradigm of mobility, requires a flexible tool, modifiable in the situation, on the basis of the continuous adjustments and revisions that occur during the teaching action, and the necessary restructuring when reflecting, a posteriori, on the action itself.
The App allows didactics to be designed visually via a Graphic Organiser (a graphical structure), which can be displayed on the interactive whiteboard and can be used and edited in the classroom.
An interactive application was developed for Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS and Android. The application makes it possible to design teaching and support classroom activities also with the active participation of students if they have a PC or Tablet or an interactive whiteboard. Currently, the system has been used by about 330 schools and more than 1000 teachers who have created more than 7000 maps of learning paths for different disciplines.
