The Italian region of Reggio Emilia hosted a national conference on “Illiteracy and citizenship: Stories, statistics and rights in Italy and Europe”, on May 13th and 14th. Graciela Sbertoli, chair of the EBSN, had been invited as a speaker but could not attend. A pre-recorded video was sent instead, and the organizers report that it served as a very useful background for their discussions. Maybe this is a strategy we should use more often? Have you produced this type of material before? Send us information! The EBSN’s Special Interest Groups may be interested in using your product as Building Block for their future on-line courses.
