• I appreciate the excursion as a form of teaching in practice - linking everyday life with school.
• I appreciate the development of cross-curricular activities - technological preparation of juices, financial literacy - for sale...
• I think that personal visit of organic farms and active experiential learning are prerequisite to better increase of interest in science subjects and the understanding that science is very close to normal life, it is all around us.
• It is a possibility of increasing pupils’ motivation - personal experience.
• Our students – similar professional excursions - focused on special subjects - production of beer, wine.

I like your way of conducting classes. Especially children grown up in large cities lack the basic knowledge on the rural life, farming, spieces of plants and animals. It also makes them aware of the ecology and responsible use of resources. Very educative.


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.
