Abstract

The present work describes and analyses the educational research tools and techniques used so as to suggest guidelines to the educational figures, who must plan pedagogical intervention activities. The aim was to collect information on psychophysical well-being on a sample of adolescents during the
lockdown period due to covid-19. The purpose is to highlight how, through educational research, it is possible: to identify concrete methods of intervention to respond to the needs that emerge in educational and training processes; to adapt practices to the characteristics of users and contexts; to evaluate the adequacy and efficiency of practices; and, to replace the "continuous emergency" perspective with a perspective of planning and evaluation. Therefore, the main aim of the research work is the understanding of the lockdown behavioral phenomena implemented by adolescents in order to develop educational practices that are more likely to be effective. They are indeed the starting point of the methodological reflection, since method, tools, and aims are closely linked.
