Description of the educational product
The target group of the educational product are primary school students. The aim of the lesson is to introduce the topic of symmetry. Teaching geometry always makes a huge problem, probably due to the fact that teachers themselves have problems with "geometric seeing ", and a good understanding of the subject requires many hours of work with students, for which teacher usually does not have time. Students learn the basic knowledge about the symmetry and geometry. The interest in and understanding of the concept of symmetry through so broadly conducted classes is greater as at regular classes. Students work in a computer lab, produce a piece of paper and mock-ups.

Resource presents the way how to demonstrate symmetry of plane and spatial bodies. It starts with the discussion on topic “What we can see and what are the features that”. Author uses PC – constructing of symmetrical graphics, presentation of garden with symmetrical formations. Later pupils themselves construct models of their own garden. This activity can connect work of teachers of biology, informatics, art education, technical education and math.

If this activity would be realised as a block curriculum (Dalton Plan) in which teachers of several subjects – biology (garden), informatics (simulation of garden using PC), art education (creation of plane and spatial symmetrical formations) and math (calculation of expenditures needed for the garden, product) would work together, it could connect these subjects in a great way by using real life example.

I will use this resource; however I will have to adapt it to electrotechnical focus of our school. We will not work with garden, but we will create model of working arrangement of IT worker.


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.
