Description of the Experience
When our teacher asked us at the lesson to measure 5 one and half centimeter stripes with a ruler and cut the paper at contours to a certain place, and then again to do the same with the second piece in a different color I was not happy. The aim of the lesson was to practice the precise measurement skills and to cut paper in straight way. I thought it was actually just cuttiing out and the teacher was going only to verify with ruler whether we cut evenly and straight. To my surprise our teacher showed us how to plait then strips together on a chessboard pattern to produce the beautiful heart. I was even more eager to work, when I heard that everyone who performs the work before the lesson ends gets good grades. I managed and gave the heart to my friend for Valentine's Day.


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.
