This is the “CoDeS Case Cadeo” blog, titled:
La chiameremo Osvaldo: Multimedia School Library spring
This blog describes the case of a school community collaboration for ESD developed in Cadeo, Italy. This is one of the cases collected within the frame of Comenius Network CoDeS.
“0svaldo” is the only territorial school Library in our area and it acts as the core of cultural and educational activity. The municipalities of Cadeo and Pontenure, our students’ families and, through targeted projects, the Provincial Administration of Piacenza, the Piacenza and Vigevano Foundation, The Regional School Office and the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) are involved in the collaboration.
The Istituto Comprensivo di Palermo is the holder of the idea, of the project and provides the staff in service. The project is coordinated by a management team responsible for its realization, which includes the headmaster, 8 teachers of the Institute, the majors of the municipalities, the councilors for school policies and two parents.
The library was built in 2007 as an extension of the existing school, by the municipality.
