Abstract

The Discetech project, which has started in 1996 in Northern Italy, aims at experimenting the introduction of new technologies within the teaching-learning activities of high school classrooms. Several hundreds experiences involving several thousands students have been carried on by the teachers who have been previously instructed and assisted by the project's staff. This paper briefly introduces two case studies, which are particular significant because they draw attention to the role that ICT detain in difficult situations in the school system. The final section wants to suggest a few useful remarks upon mutual connection between computer and diseases, both emotional and physical.
