  5. 5. To students through teachers • Introducing technologies is not, of course, sufficient to positively influence educational practices alone • Rather, technology should be used as a tool to mediate the construction and validation of students informal learning • We stress the importance of letting teachers experience technology- mediated constructive learning so that they can challenge themselves in a new way of learning and teaching (Sansone et al., 2019) • Teachers’ training: 116 Italian teachers trained to fully integrate informal learning in formal path
  6. 6. The challenge: how to validate informal learning • 4 steps: • identification of the results of learning (learning outcomes), broken down by knowledge, abilities and skills of the non-formal/informal (Recognition); • production of evidence on the part of the candidate (Documentation); • evaluation of the results of learning (Assessment), or validation; • certification of the results achieved. • Learning Analytics can help in documentation and recognition online.
  7. 7. The Pilot • 226 students from different schools taking parts in the Pilot • 44 video-based resources created from group-works • 197 «stories» to tell about their informal learning
  8. 8. Obastacles and limits • Cultural biases • Infrastructures • Privacy Policies • Teachers’ training
  9. 9. Further directions • Defining a unique assessment protocol to evaluate informal learning • Improve Learning Analytics • Disseminate results for policy-makers to take decisions • Promote the «informal culture» in schools and university
