Description of the Experience
The aim of the lesson was to discuss on Environment and chemical industries. This is another topic well known to the students from their everyday life. Therefore, I chose group work and divided students into four groups.
For the class I prepared a presentation with different pictures from the environment, the chemical industry, from nature (about 6 files together).The students were shown the pictures one by one. Later they were supposed to present their group opinion on each one of the pictures. When the set time for preparation passed one member of the group presented their opinion, own experiences, positive and negative feelings of the group members, then responded to the views of the other groups.
The lesson was an asset since the students showed a nice way of communication with each other and respected opinions of other classmates, even though in many cases, their views differed. However they did not have a problem to express their opinion, even if it was different than the majority of the class.
From the perspective of a teacher I think that students often only memorize and repeat the words of a teacher and do not get space to say their own opinions. That is why I try to lighten the teaching process by using different methods and forms of teaching.

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.
