Effective education does not come from the passive absorption of facts, yet classes at most universities are large lectures devoted to sharing static content. The new generation of Students needs a completely different way to approach to the University system. The challenge for the University of the future is not much about what to teach but how to teach. Learning exclusively in small interactive seminars demands the full engagement of your professors and classmates alike. This practice of Active Learning (e-learning) allow students to have a flexible space and time to study. The advantages are: - less buildings - more green spaces - less expenses for students - more quality teaching. Poveglia is fully part to an extremely beautiful and fascinating Ecosystem: the Venetian lagoon. This unique landscape is made mainly by waterways and small islands but what makes it magical is thebriccole system and the small sails always related to the historical buildings in the background. Poveglia as an e-island: an innovative and multicultural University Campus where technology meets a unique landscape. E- as electionic, E- as enjoy: Poveglia become mainly a pleasant place to meet a “multifunctional pier” where Nature acts as main character. We always intend Islands like enclosed spaces, but the e-island overturn these means. Poveglia can be part of a larger University system, linked to the most suggestive locations around the world. E-island will be an extendend University, a Multicultural and Multidisciplinary Cloud-Space to share knowledge, experiences, dreams. E-Island aims to be an indipendent “mini-world”!
