Description of the educational product
The educational product is addressed to upper secondary school students between 18 and 19 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 additional initial electric current 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.

This is an excellent model for this concept, which takes a bit to understand just from theory. The model can be stared at and seen in the real life (although usually in extreme sports). But it reflects rather well what happens with the electric current flowing through a coil when the circuit is cut.

The aim of the project is to explain what happens when electric current is supplemented. The students will present it in front of the class and I appreciate that it will be a discuss about the subject. My oppinion is that final debates are always a plus in a 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.
