This paper presents an experience of digital education carried out in 77 Florentine school classes, thanks to a project realized by the libraries of the Municipality of Florence. The 144 meetings are discussed to start a reflection generating from real, field-collected data about what is being done in schools in digital education today, about what could be done and what, perhaps, should be done. One of the most interesting facts emerged from the meetings concerns the discrepancy between the digital knowledge that students show (to their parents and teachers) and what they really know and, consequently, what they would need to learn. Possibly, it is necessary to rethink the kind of digital education carried out in schools in Italy, perhaps considering it less as a mere subject and more as a whole new mindset and cognitive approach.
