Description of the educational product
The educational product is addressed to upper secondary school students between 16 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 radioactivity 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.

Theoryvimprecise. The model based on formation of a solution is incorrect. As a radioactive isotope emits alpha, beta, gama rays,other isotope nuclei are formed. In a solution the same particles, that were in the solid substance, spread out, nothing new forms. The model doesn't fit the image. Basically, this model can't be used in lessons.

By trying to understand an abstract subject like this one, it is necessary to make a good example as well. I think this product relevant. It's easy to understand. Everybody should use more models that all understand so it would attract more people. Product will attract those students that are into it. Those who find this interesting will like it and motivate them.

There is something very interesting about Radioactivity. According to the educational plan, radioactivity is compared with a vitamin pill put in a glass of water and releasing
its parts. I am sure that students will understand better how this concept works from this example.


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.
