Genoa came under the watchful eyes of teachers at TED 2003. The third annual technology in education event showcased the results of the Sat@Once project, a satellite communication system currently piloted by Dschola, a regional school network.
Sat@Once is a system that distributes the most frequently viewed web content onto a local PC using a simple DVB Satellite dish, the kind normally used for receiving satellite broadcasts. The service is based on the Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) standard. The technology uses a set of predefined criteria to filter and retrieve relevant pages.
Under the framework of an ESA project operated in conjunction with Luxembourg’s SES-ASTRA, the system has currently been piloted by Turin-based CSP. During the study, many schools have been able to use the system to provide teachers and students with audio-visual and multimedia materials integrated with and complementing lessons and text-books using the combined potential of the Internet, satellite and VCRs.
