This work presents the adaptation of the participatory approach used in the past to evaluate campuses’ smartness to the case of K12 and High schools. The adaptation has been implemented taking into consideration both the universalities represented by the principles that have inspired the approach (i.e. satisfaction of needs described by the Maslow’s pyramid and achievement of the “flow” state) and the localities represented by the evaluation framework put in place by the Italian Ministry of University, Research & Education (MIUR) through the INVALSI (National Institute for the Evaluation of Educational Systems). A pilot study is underway in several High and K12 schools. Preliminary results are reported and discussed.
