In the face of the explosion of new didactic technologies, the project partner thought it was indispensable to become the promoter of such a distinguished European Project that aimed to involve Catholic schools of different nationalities and of different traditions.
The objective had to embrace two main points: the “didactic” aspect for its inevitable
spin-off in the daily practice of educational activity and the organisation of school life;
and the “cultural” aspect since it modifies the mental processes, the contents of consciousness, interpersonal relationships, interaction with the surrounding world, and
self-understanding, that is, the intimate fibres of the humanity of each one of us.
Methodologies, tools, and educational and technological, partnerships and activities are all described in this final publication.
This publication concerns the implementation of the activities of the Project: ICT
BASED LEARNING – Information and communication technologies to support new ways of lifelong learning, co-financed by the Leonardo da Vinci Program, Cod. LLPLdV-TOI-10-IT-488. The publication highlights the methods used in matching up the original project with the schools involved, both during the training for the course and the experience of using it.
The first Chapter deals with the project: reason, aims, consortium, target groups,
phases, outcome, by understanding the partners’ competences, the planning and preparatory activ-ities of the Project and the expected outcome.
The second and third Chapters develop respectively: training activities, learning
paths, and ICT tools, and the monitoring and evaluation of the project, but starting from
the analysis of the context and of the needs, and by describing the various phases of the
transfer of the original project via the training delivered, and by bearing in mind the need to emphasise the importance of assessing the project.

Area of application
The Project: “Information and Communication Technologies to Support New Ways of
Lifelong Learning” which ended with a final meeting in Rome on September 29th 2012, has been promoted by FIDAE, and developed in a close and effective collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo Formazione and the General Secretariats
of the Catholic Schools of England (CES- Catholic Education Service), and France
(EC- Enseignement Catholique). 14 schools across three countries have taken part in
this project and it has been an experience of great importance and significance for those
who have directly participated. Thanks to the materials produced and published both
as a book and electronically, the experience will be shared with other teachers, thus
spreading excellent practice that has all the requirements to become ‘food for thought’
for other European schools. It goes without saying that, when facing the complex and
ever changing subject of didactic technologies, the Project will surely fulfil the task of being a first, albeit important, step in a process that will continue to be developed. This is an inception of an analytical process that will have to explore in-depth, and case by case, new and emerging as aspects that will arise. This hopes to be a conscious interpretation of a didactic that progressively measures itself against the challenges of modernity without
ever losing its own cultural roots and the fundamental values of Italian, French, and
English pedagogical traditions.
