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 scientific concept of pressure 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.

Pressure is on pictures expain very cleart and understandable and for us students very easy to understand. From this picture is clear that size of pressure depends from size of area in this power acting.

It is example from real life and we can meet with this example in real life. And this can motivate students. When student is a technical type of person , he can have interest about refine your snowshoes and create better power pressure to area.

It is pertinent model for defining of pressure.
Jokeful and simple illustration of concrete situation. Simple way to explain and understand the basics of concept of pressure.
This model visually demonstrates that concepts which are taught in physics classes are closely interrelated to our ordinary life. Due to the relation of our life and physics, it is important to understand and be able to explain various situation, which pupil (human being) can find himself or herself in. Physics can ease pupils’ lives if they can understand to it.
I will definitely use this model during my classes. There is no need to change it. Maybe I could rather speak about cross-country skis or skis, which pupils normally use, instead of the snowshoes which are not so known in Slovakia

I am sure that students will understand better how this concept works from this example. I think this example is easy to understand. Pictures perfectly describe how pressure works. This model can be used for all age students.

Very good example for understanding the meaning of pressure.


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.
