I have also found this activity very useful for my students. Their work is displayed on the classroom walls and they have to present it to their colleagues. They also have to answer their colleagues' comments and suggestions.
It requires a lot of preparation and responsibility.


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.
