You are right: if the students can't imagine/ visualize what we are teaching them at a certain moment they find it hard to learn. Learning can't take place in an empty space, a void. Imagination- depends on one's experience so it is anchored in reality; field trips are steppingstones on which imagination can re/create a reality. They can enrich students' experience and help them understand, sometimes, abstract things.


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.
