Description of the educational product
The target group of this lesson are students of vocational training in computer science and programming, mainly from firsts courses
The educational product aims at create a complete model of how a computer works by describing which parts of the computer are related to which function of a restaurant kitchen. This is a very good analogy because one can practically replace every concept of CPU processing with events and elements of a restaurant with very few modification.
The expected result is a basis to comprehend which parts a CPU has, what they do, and how they are related in the pursuit of the final goal of processing information.

I like a lot this model. Really good for using it in lessons. For the students will be very easy to understand how a computer works and all their components. It's really a good idea!!!


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.
