The first research report explains the methodology used by the "Dedalo Project", summarising the life and works of Kurt Lewin and paying special attention to his "Action Research" - the methodology used in the first step of the research. Lewin’s methodology is then compared with the one that Zoltan Barany applied to the Rom in the Balkans. In order to contribute to the social inclusion of young immigrants in Sicily, the importance of overcoming the "computer divide" is stressed as a pivotal element in young immigrants’ new professional training. At the same time, however, it would be mistake to underestimate the dangers inherent in such computer training, especially for young people: hence the final remarks on the risks of Grooming, Bullying (or cyberbullying, cyberstalking) and, finally, the privacy issues arising specifically in the context of young immigrants, who are often in a borderline legal situation.

Keywords: Action research - Immigration - Kurt Lewin - Minors - Sicily - Social Integration
