Description of the Experience
Teaching science subjects physics, the main difficulty is that many pupils lack the basic knowledge and skills . So if's level of basic knowledge groups are very unequal access to differentiated learning.
The overall conclusion is that the great mass of students' lack of ability to perceive decreases in a learning pace and makes it difficult to focus retention of hours.
The lesson create it, the theory interspersed with the manipulation. I try to keep free atmosphere in the lesson for everyone who wants to participate in work to not be discouraged. As far as possible, I teach subject mixing different modes of perception:
- Visual (demonstration, visualization)
- Auditory (narration, questions / answers, discussion)
- Tactile (lab work).
To understand what is a learning process, students take control tasks. Their results are used for improving the learning process.
Differentiated approach to the acquisition of a marketable topic:
1. Giving the learners to work on the same subject different aspects. For example, involving students in a discussion about where to use the acquired knowledge in real situations.
2. Experimental tasks give students of similar tasks at a level that would be suitable for them, based on prior knowledge. For example, the same exercise for students, there are several tasks - the more able learners in complex tasks, the other simple tasks.

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.
