Description of the Experience
Is not always easy to explain to the young children the numbers and the relation between them. Working with number for them is very difficult. To involve children in writing numbers we have to explore various methods to capture their attention and to make the lesson funnier.
As my students love to explore electronics I tried to combine the use of the desk computers with numbers. I gave to the students a desk computer, a pencil and papers and invite the children to play on the computer, to add and subtract numbers and to write the results on the paper.
First I worked with them showing to them the plus and minus buttons and what happens when we form numbers.
The students loved to play with the calculators and they paid so much attention in writing the exact numbers on their papers. There was no right or wrong in the process, just a way to explore numbers, the writing process, and the calculators. This was a simple way to bring numbers into the classroom experience.

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.
