Aim: The project was designed to foster wellbeing in adolescent subjects, using high intensity ICT (Information and Communication Technologies). Methods: Specifically, self-esteem was measured using standardized tests administered to the subjects, ranging in age from 11 to 14 at the beginning of the investigation and again after two years. Results:In our study, we found a high level of wellbeing as regards perceived self-esteem in school and sportsamong 11/12 year olds, and this is consistent with national studies. However, in contrast with the national situation, overall, we found an increase in perceived wellbeing among 13/14 year olds as regards perceived selfesteem in both school and sports.This finding points to the effectiveness of our intervention. Conclusions:The development of skills thanks to learning methods supported by high intensity ICT, proved to be important in boosting the perceived self-esteem of the participating subjects, enhancing their ability to achieve a greater sense of wellbeing. .
