Advancing computing education globally

Oracle Academy holds its first Virtual Educator Day in Italy

Jane Richardson
Senior Director, EMEA

The first Oracle Academy Virtual Educator Day for Italy opened on May 12, 2020, hosted by panelists:

  • Oracle Academy Senior Marketing Manager Orlaith Lawton, based in Dublin

  • Oracle Academy Program Manager, Italy, Roberta Battagli

  • Special guest Claudio Palucci, Oracle Principal Solution Engineer, based in Rome

Battagli introduced educators to Oracle Academy’s free resources to teach and learn computing. This includes curriculum centered around Java and database,  learning resources, Oracle cloud technologies, software and applications, support, and professional certification resources.

Claudio, a regular contributor to Oracle Academy programs, walked attendees through “Un viaggio nella tecnologia insieme ad Oracle,” a journey into technology with Oracle. This historical journey covered the origins of the database to the technology of today and the future, including Exadata Database Machines.

We particularly wish to thank Claudio for sharing his expertise and for his continued support for Oracle Academy in Italy! The online event can viewed in full here.

As Oracle’s global, philanthropic educational program, Oracle Academy advances computing education around the world to increase knowledge, innovation, skills development, and diversity in technology fields. The program engages with thousands of educational institutions and educators in more than 120 countries, helping millions of students become college and career ready.

Oracle Academy membership is free to educators and institutions. In Italy, Battagli is happy to support academic institutions that wish to apply for membership for themselves and their educators. For further information, please contact Oracle Academy Italy.
