Samuele Calzone, INDIRE researcher, deals with schools in their main dimensions: improvement and enhancement of the technological infrastructure and equipment (learning environments), didactics (teachers), student learning (pupils), school organisation (headmasters). In particular, the research investigations focus on a number of issues related to the introduction of digital technology in schools (digital skills, media education), the personalisation of learning, especially in adulthood, the development of critical thinking and soft skills, learning theories and distance learning. He is also interested in the didactics of philosophy.
