Description of the Experience
Students are accustomed to the routine training process. I believe that teachers should do everything to prevent surprise learner and his "atslēgites" of the class.

For example: tasks that usually run in the current arrangement of themes. For example. learning of Word, shape drawing, drawings instead of snowmen on the book, but the iPhone application icon.

Tests at the computer, the task among students with frequent change of jobs, to experience it is to take over the work begun at the adoptēties and be able to finish it. Sounds like it's going to come back the next time the job.

Often asking a single job for a month, as a project, which after putting on a scale assessments. There are no limits to the assistance - parents, friends, the Internet, etc. The key to the end of the month is the result.

I try to teach at their mistakes. Often showing a video presentation, where I performed with projects at international conferences and redundant learners themselves to criticize. In this way, they are looking for mistakes and not allow themselves such. It is important to know how to grow to work in a group and individually. After assigning work, appreciate the work, for example. 25 points - 4 points the students themselves divided and tell their marks. For example, 25 = 4, 6, 6, 9th One should be able to objectively evaluate themselves not only themselves, but also colleagues and thus contribute to the next time, each trying to be a valuable team member for the overall mark is greater than 25!

Students will be assessed a non-standard approach and perceived learning playful - as the game, so that is much more open and easier to host education.

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.
