Think-in-Coding is three-year research project that involves a Turin’s public school, and a group of Research Center Cinedumedia during curricular Technology classes. The didactic method is centered on four key points: 1) Cooperative Learning, 2) Think-Make-Improve, 3) Traditional Scientific Method to promote curiosity and motivation, 4) Digital Competences as cross-cutting objectives. Since the first year of collaboration, every researcher agree that are not the instruments by themselves that change reality and improve students’ performances, but the processes that involve the chosen tools. For this reason, Covid emergency do not represent an insuperable obstacle, but an occasion to prove the power of the school promoting more than ever digital skills.
