The aim of this research is to investigate the still unexplored potential of the use of ICT (Information Communication Technology) in language teaching.
The reflection will focus primarily on the mainly old fashion grammar teaching in Italian schools. One way to overcome the students “detachment” from grammar is the use of an online platform, which, by means of an inductive-constructivist approach, would lead to an improvement of the pupils’ linguistic and grammatical abilities, as well as meta-linguistic skills. In this article, I will argue that a “new” way to teach language is possible and beneficial, as shown by the good results of an experimental course of Italian held in 2016 in a sixth grade class.
The course consisted of "Grammar Experiments": paths of "discovery" of some grammatical phenomena through inductive-constructivist approach by means of the online platform Moodle.
