#IONONHOPAURA: BETWYLL MEETS CANADA

Social Reading Project

The Istituto Italiano di Cultura promotes #IoNonHoPaura, an innovative social reading project with the technical partnership of Betwyll and in collaboration with the Italian and Media Departments of University of Toronto, York University, and University of Toronto Mississauga.

The students of these universities, together with the students attending Italian courses at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, will read and comment on Betwyll the novel Io non ho paura by Niccolò Ammaniti. During the project, the professors will take advantage of Betwyll’s adaptability: the students read the text in Italian and publish their “twylls” (short messages of 140 characters). By reading these “twylls”, their professors will test the students’ understanding and writing skills and give real time feedbacks by posting replies.\
