Label of the day
The project Tabula is designed to promote social integration of immigrants in Italy, through a process that combines literacy and digital literacy. Target audience: adult illiterate immigrants or immigrants with low literacy skills.
The project Tabula was developed in Turin, where the number of adult immigrants illiterate in native language or in any case with low education level is increasing among the immigrant population. For this reason there is a relevant number of them who participate in courses of Italian language learning (Italian L2) and this represents a specific problem which is not easy to solve. As a matter of fact, over 20% of immigrants enrolled in L2 courses do not finish the course. The first objective of the project Tabula was therefore to find new effective and motivating teaching methods of L2 for adult illiterate immigrants or immigrants with low literacy skills.
