Abstract

The Stanza Logo-Motoria is an interactive multimodal environment, designed to support and aid learning in Primary Schools, with particular attention to children with Learning Disabilities. The system is permanently installed in a classroom of the “Elisa Frinta” Primary School in Gorizia where for over a year now, it has been used as an alternative and/or additional tool to traditional teaching strategies; the on-going experimentation is confirming the already excellent results previously assessed, in particular for ESL (English as a Second Language). The Stanza Logo-Motoria, also installed for scientific research purposes at the Engineering Information Department (DEI) of University of Padova, has sparked the interest of teachers, students and educationalists and makes us believe that this is but the beginning of a path, which could lead to the introduction of technologically augmented learning in schools.
