Title: Online education: presence and proximity in the age of the “new normal” Didattica online: presenza e prossimità nell’era della “nuova normalità”
Authors: Pireddu, Mario 
Issue Date: 2020
The study of the relationships between culture and technology, especially in light of media
studies and mediology, shows that distinctions typical of common sense, which are not always
rigorous from an epistemological point of view, continue to be used in the pedagogical field. The
concrete forms of online teaching experience imposed by the coronavirus emergency - almost
completely unknown for the school and generally defined with the acronym DAD - led to the
development of a debate that has confirmed an arbitrary and not infrequently dichotomous
distinction between technology and culture, artificial and natural, digitization and learning. The
same reference to distance in teaching, just as for what has been improperly defined as social
distancing, is based solely on the concept of physical distance. This paper analyzes the concepts of presence and proximity in didactics from an epistemological point of view, to show in a nondeterministic way that learning processes are built on educational relationships and methodologies based on the awareness of the chosen media ecosystem.
