Abstract

The advent of digital technology and hypermedia has deeply affected our culture and the way knowledge and expertise is shared and handed over from one generation to the next. E-books, are slowly subsuming the printed format as the preferred vehicle for reading, and the Web has become one of the primary sources of information, which interconnects its users globally.

These changes have had a strong impact on education publishing too, both in terms of a reconceptualisation of traditional school books, and in terms of the new challenges for the education publishing industry.

TESOL Italy (the non-profit association of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages and a qualified training agency for MIUR) and the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures of Roma Tre University have organised a round table discussion on these topics, with a focus on the future of textbook publishing and the impact of digital media on education.

Round table chair: Enrico Grazzi (Roma Tre University and TESOL Italy’s past President).

Speakers:

Roberto Baldassari (Executive vice President of Istituto Piepoli and contract teacher at Roma Tre University).

Claudia Rebesani (Board of Directors of INDIRE – Istituto Nazionale di Documentazione, Innovazione e Ricerca Educativa).

Lucia Staccone (Sistema Bibliotecario di Ateneo – Università degli Studi Roma Tre)
