Digital storytelling and civic engagement in lifelong learning


  • Manuela Repetto Pensa MultiMedia Editore

In this period of unpredictable changes, we wonder how lifelong learning can be readapted by resorting to approaches that develop the capacity-building potential of learners. Who are these learners? People whose age group exposes them most to the risk of exclusion and whose prospects on the quality of life appear even more uncertain, especially in this pandemic period. Starting from the educational model for human development and from recent research on digital storytelling, we want to define an educational system based on digital narratives. This model represents the main theoretical framework for a research project aimed at the elderly in an urban periphery context with meaningful potential – social and cultural – spill-over effects on the participants and on the whole community to which they belong.
