With the Covid-19 pandemic, the need to enhance online learning has become an international priority, which will inevitably change the models for networked education and learning and become an integral part of teachers’ professional training. This paper presents the learning design of the advanced course “Digital Teaching. Methods and Tools for School” delivered in e-learning mode at the University of Florence in the A.Y. 2020/2021, illustrating the theoretical-operational practices that could represent an innovation in a specific context, in order to favour its diffusion in similar conditions.
