How can we leave no one behind in the digital revolution?

Language and digital have many points of contact, from programming languages themselves to computational linguistics. In short, they are two fields that communicate often and provide stimuli for each other.

Both disciplines put themselves at service of education, the backbone of our society. That is why updating core learning tools, like textbooks, is so important to leave no one behind.


How do you turn a nerdy passion in a beacon for future generations?

When I was a kid, I spent countless hours compiling Linux distributions by hand. Although it was a nerdy pastime, I recognized the value in those lessons in system administration. They were an early indication that my love for technology would become a defining aspect of my life.

A decade after, I had the opportunity to met educational publisher Garzanti. I was just 24 years old, and they asked me to write new definitions for their secondary school textbooks.


The definitions of citizenship I wrote for DeAgostini and Garzanti


How can we literally define… “digital”?

Amidst grand themes like citizenship, democracy, and welfare, I crafted ten entries on digital matters. Being able to define the world around us means being able to master it, and digital technologies offer us additional tools for understanding.

Although they are undoubtedly resources for our society, these technologies demand a greater degree of attention from us, prompting us to ask questions, whether about ethical issues, environmental impact or social equity.
