5G Smart School
Digital tools and participatory methodologies for the school of the future.
Can digital tools be drivers for educational innovation? In short, yes, but not by themselves. With the first edition of the 5G Smart School project, we brought our recipe for a smart school in 4 Italian schools: 420 computers, fast 5G connection and innovative teaching methodologies.
From art galleries to virtual tours: learners and teachers used digital tools to tackle curricular subjects in an active and participating way. This year, the immersion continues with a focus on the STEM world, thanks to virtual labs and interactive quizzes about the Agenda 2030.

The 3 ingredient recipe for a 5G Smart School
Thanks to contributions from Qualcomm, Acer and TIM, the 5G Smart School project brings more effective learning experiences to learning spaces, using the best technologies to make lessons inclusive and engaging for all. But it’s not just about computers and connectivity: our latest edition brings virtual reality headsets to make activities even more immersive.
Training for teachers
Using role-play, cooperative and challenge-based learning, teachers can design Gen Z-proof lessons by delving into the most effective teaching methodologies. What’s more, within the online community, instructors can engage with colleagues, and download lesson plans and tutorials to create interactive lessons with CoSpaces Edu, Minecraft Education Edition and Google Earth.
Life skills for learners
Approaching block coding while studying art history or a geometry problem? With the 5G Smart School project, students are not only deep diving into curricular knowledge, but also training soft skills, with challenges and projects involving schools from all over Italy.
