Fields of expertise
Her fields of expertise include in-service training and professional development of teachers in reading literacy. She investigated the relationship between teacher preparation in literacy pedagogy and students outcomes, also in environments with high concentration of immigrant students at higher risk of social exclusion. More recently, her research has focused on developing distance learning programs to disseminate new literacy knowledge achieved today through the international studies to reach a wide audience and those areas of the country (Italy) where there is the greatest need for educational training (Mascia, T. (2020). I percorsi del lettore. Ed. Sinestesie) . In this context, it has been developed the programme Invito alla lettura – Rai Cultura: an online course for teacher’s training which focuses on literacy skills development and uses tv and web tv to promote literacy: Educare alla Literacy 0-10; Lettori indipendenti 10-14; Biblioteche scolastiche e lettura aumentata.
