Description of the Experience
While learning Systems of Railway Management, difficulties arise in understanding of a variety of different terminologies. Most part of those terms we just learn by heart without understanding of their true meaning. We have difficulties with studying a plan of a station. This is where we have to understand how to arrange train’s arrival and departure. The subject on its own is not difficult, various things can be memorised by applying a real life example to them. For example, traffic light, we often meet them in our everyday life when traveling by auto transport. To easily memorise a definition I always try to associate with the corresponding real life example. This helps me to undersand and memorise the term. If I can not find a correspong real life example, then I seek help from my teacher. But if even teacher’s explanations are not sufficient for me, I tend to learn the term by heart. I think that introduction of visual examples will enchance understanding of the subject.


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.
