Description of the educational product
The educational product is addressed to upper secondary school students between 14 and 15 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 the Force and Newton’s laws of motion 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.

Agree with the idea of the model. Students like sports. And there are some situations like the one described in this model where some physics laws are clearly perceivable.

I believe it is important in our teaching practice to give to students examples, which represent the scientific concepts in a real life situations. I like this model because in it's simplicity it explains a theme students have difficulties with. I believe that in order to motivate students it is also important for the teacher to know how to present the topic and how to grab student's attention. I like using the model method in my practice now, after I discovered it under the Goerudio project.


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.
