Innova, the first full digital school in Italy

One of the problems in our country is school dropouts. That is, leaving school before compulsory completion of the cycle, or at least ahead of time.

And among the solutions is also the digital school. This was the idea of ​​the Janus Higher Education Institute, which launched Innova, the first (complete) digital school in Italy for graduates.

Let’s find out what Innova is and how it works. And then we see a cross-section of early school leaving in Italy, with the recent data from the Ministry of Education.

Innova, the first all-digital school

Innova is therefore the digital platform launched by the Janus Institute. The school is based on an innovative methodology, where everything is online only: from 10,000 hours of lessons to text studies, to prepare for the diploma from every corner of Italy.

A complete platform

The Innova platform offers a school that is not only digital, but also intelligent, mobile first and inclusive.

In fact, it was born outmust provide a state-of-the-art, integrated and multimedia tool for an innovative and up-to-date learning offeringdue to the wide variety of devices (PCs, smartphones and tablets).

The full name of the platform is LMS-Learning Management System-Innova. And it was developed on a training model that favors the autonomy and personalization of the way.

Accessed 24 hours a day, it includes all learning materials, allows you to create a personalized study plan and offers various features including assessment tests, recorded lessons, webinars and exercises, tutoring and orientation, simulations and PCTO (Pathways for Transversal Skills and for Orientation) online .

Meadow including Platform

The project also draws attention to students with special needs (attention deficit, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia) who offer engaging courses.

Learning in the digital school of the Janus Institute is considered an all-round experience that involves the person from different points of view: for this reason, live webinars were set up at the beginning of the school year, conducted by expert psychologists in training. , to teach students how to organize their time and how to manage all moments of anxiety and stress.

How the first fully digital school in Italy works

There are various initiatives in the world for digitalisation, especially of the younger generations. But Innova is the first all-digital Italian school.

After re-registration, the student is given access to login information for the platform and is immediately assigned a personal tutor with whom to make an appointment for the first cognitive interview.

The tutor will have the task of determining the didactic level of entry, to help the student organize his / her study hours. In addition, if necessary, moments of revision in the program.

Lessons and study paths

Each lesson consists of four moments: Explanatory video of the teacher, slides with concept maps and focus on the fundamental points of the lesson, in-depth document on the topic, exercises (if necessary).

Each course includes specialized personal tutors, complete and constantly updated learning materials, online tests and verifications, oral questions. In addition to high school exam simulations and refresher webinars.

The lessons are flexible, the educational programs are adapted for each student. And there are programs to open up lost years.

Leaving school early

The Innova digital school was created to respond to the problem of early school leaving.

As many as 3 million students have dropped out of high school in the last 20 years. In this sense, the latest data provided by Miur goes back to 2019. And they bring us small comforting numbers. Exactly in 2019, there were approximately 17,000 external candidates for the state exams, with a percentage of not passing equal to 80%. In fact, when children leave the traditional course, they can not prepare adequately. And so the risk of not completing your studies increases.

The Janus Institute digital school was created precisely to modernize traditional learning methodologies and to provide students with real support. Classical training is integrated and enhanced thanks to web tools.

The Janus Institute has invested in research, learning and technologyaware that new technologies can be of great help in creating learning environments for flexible, modular and autonomous education, tailored to the different didactic and cognitive needs of each individual.
