Metodi autobiografici e coding per lo sviluppo dell’autoconsapevolezza e delle competenze trasversali.

Gabriella Aleandri, Emanuele Consoli


In the current knowledge society, the meta-competence of Learning to learn and transversal skills are fundamental. It is therefore necessary for individuals to understand what their level of mastery of these skills is and what strategies they can implement to improve themselves. Self-awareness, creativity and digital technologies, as well as being fundamental tools for operating in the constantly changing contemporary world, are also valid support tools for the literacy and training of active and informed citizens. With this in mind, in the academic year 2019/20, a research project was carried out through using autobiographical methods and coding. The autobiographical writing formats and the multimedia products created through coding with the Scratch language have been developed during workshops in the presence and online, remotely, on a portal. Students wrote their life experiences in order to better understand them, to know the level of mastery of certain skills, what factors or events influenced their choices and creatively rethink and rework their experiences. This article reports the main results of this study, which confirm that both the autobiographical format and the use of digital technologies are useful tools for the education and training of people, especially in a lifelong learning perspective.
