The UX@School kick-off meeting was held in Fano (Italy) on 18-19 December 2023.

The main goal of the project is to strengthen the role of teachers and trainers in designing student-centred digital environments, activities and materials, exploiting the potential of UX Design in order to improve engagement and effectiveness of distance learning in schools.

During the meeting, the partners had the opportunity to present their organisations and define the work plan for the coming months.

The topics discussed were as follows:

  • Project Overview and Results, with a focus on the main work packages, including:
    • the production of the Handbook, providing basic theory on UX principles, tools, and examples for applying UX Design concepts to the creation of digital environments and materials for effective learning processes.
    • the production of the Online Track System for monitoring and evaluating student user experience while interacting with online learning artifacts and environments, based on UX principles.
  • Project Dissemination and Expected Outcomes
  • Administrative and supporting documents that are required for successful project management and reporting
  • Quality Assurance

The partnership will now be involved in defining the methodology for the focus group and questionnaire to establish the structure of the Handbook and the Online Tracking System.

To stay updated on project developments, the project website and social media pages will be created soon.
