Description of the educational product
The educational product is addressed to upper secondary school students between 14 and 17 years old. The aim of an educational model is to illustrate a scientific concept through an image that has been chosen by a student. In this specific model the concept of recycling is explained. Once the model has been developed, the student presents it to the classmates asking for their opinion about the usability of the model itself. The discussion, moderated by the teacher, is a training moment and a good opportunity for him to explain the scientific concept and also evaluate the students’ interaction. The student himself also translated the model, which is training of his language skills in the specific matter. The expected results from using this model would be better comprehension and understanding of a scientific concept, stimulation of the creative thinking of the students, improving their discussion and assessment abilities.

Students may have problems with this subject because they can't understand it totally. Example is ideally suitable for term recycling. Model helps to learn and to overcome students’ lack of motivation to study scientific subjects as this.

I find this a very interesting product not only for the reasons that it might motivate the children if properly presented, but especially because it transversely represents the skills of education to the citizens. I'd like to test it in the classroom with colleagues who teach science and chemistry to try and raise awareness about recycling materials which, at the end of it's life cycle, can be reused without wasting any more raw materials or energy.

Nowadays, the whole planet needs a lot the Recycling process and teachers have to educate students in this way so they will protect nature. Presenting this educational program, they will understand the definition of recycle. That is why I think that would be a better educational plan with a relevant example in it.


Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
