Flavia Giannoli

MIlan, Italy


My name is Flavia, I’m from Italy!

I teach Physics and Mathematics at Liceo Scientifico A. Volta in Milan, Italy (High School). I love e-learning and Technologies,that I’ve been using for years in the classroom.

I think that disruptive technologies are challenging traditional School Learning. Boundaries are blurring: formal mix up with informal, real with virtual, the teacher with the learner. Liquid modernity takes on school a great responsibility. Education became a lifelong learning journey. Learning experiences need to be designed and carefully projected.Visit the author's original post

I am MIEExpert 2014 and 2015. 

Digital Games, simulation for
students’ learning are my major areas of interests. I  believe that this is relatively a new field for educators to explore. A game is the subset of play and fun, it creates an environment of enjoyment, pleasure and involvement.  I am researching  investigating that how gaming principles are relevant to learning theories such as ZPD, scaffolding, motivation and collaboration by Vygotsky and Bruner. I am invited as panelist on discussion forum “Inspiring Student Learning and Creativity through Gaming” @ Microsoft Global forum in Barcelona.  My posts on
the same topic are available on What’s Fresh Microsoft MIEE blog.… Visit the author's original post
