ICT for Global Education, e-Inclusion and Peace
The Fondazione Mondo Digitale (FMD) is a new Foundation in Rome. Founded in 2006 it is also engaged in ICT for Peace, e-Inclusion and gobal Education. On the Homepage of Mondo Digitale you can find an explanation for this engagement:
Any real solution will come from dialogue and must take root in the hearts and minds of the people of the two nations. Every action that contributes to this goal is worthwhile trying, knowing that perhaps it is only a drop in the sea. Yet, many drops of concern can become an ocean of change.
First Project on Peace, ICT and e-Inclusion
In 2004, one of these drops of concern became a small educational project promoted by the Fondazione Mondo Digitale and the Tapuah Association.
This project took the form of the Holding Hands “electronic journalino” intended to
- stimulate dialogue,
- sharing of knowledge and experience,
- collaborative working and
- mutual understanding between teachers and children from schools in Israel, Palestina and Rome.
The content of the online magazine
The magazine dealt with topics connected to
- peace, culture, politics, news and
- current affairs seen through the eyes of the students.
- Other sections were dedicated to music and entertainments, as well as sport and nature.
A simple procedure was devised for the editorship and multi-linguality.The worsening of the situation in Palestine affected the participation of Palestinian schools and the project stopped in mid-2006.
Since Dialogue is the only hope, Holding Hands remains a valid experiment for Peace by means of ICT and e-inclusion.
Background of the Fondation Mondiale Digitale
FMD is a centre on
- inclusion and
- fundamental values.
The FMD aims to „promote the development of a cyclical and virtuous dynamic state through these dimensions. The Foundation has launched activities in various areas concerning digital inclusion via various projects that are in different stages of development:
- pilot actions,
- implementation or
- completed projects like www.holdinghands.it
This is the result of a flexible and evolving approach to the creation of resources.
Peace in our time has been a dream of humanity forever. Today the Israeli – Palestinian conflict stands as the longest and most dramatic obstacle to peace in the Middle East.
