Description of the initiative
E-Teacher of Environment. Integrated learning environment for the development of scientific thinking, information literacy and language skills of pupils at II and III stage of education funded under the Operational Programme Human Capital and the European Social Fund assumed the development and pilot implementation of an innovative curriculum of science (physics, chemistry, biology and nature in schools basic) modeling technique based on the dialogue in the classroom Questioning the Author and e-learning platform BLT VHT which are included educational multimedia materials made in Flash.
E-learning platform provides an environment in which students while additional classes (45 minutes per week) acquainted with aspects of physics, chemistry, biology and nature. The learning process was based on discussions with the teacher during which methods were used assumptions Questioning the Author (QTA) and advanced Flash animations in which virtual teacher Monika presenting selected issues natural. The platform is also equipped with a module for teaching English vocabulary associated with the phenomena of nature and the module mini-WWW, which is a database of articles on this issue equipped with a search engine articles.
More Information
This project and materials are relevant for science teachers. ETOS (E-Tutor of Science) is based on the Questioning the Author (QTA) method, technique based on the dialogue in the classroom.
The portal is easy to navigate. Guide to use the portal is published to facilitate the use of didactic resources ( . The portal also includes the lesson plans to use the innovative approach. All materials for teachers are published here:
Project portal redirects users to e-learning platform ( where didactic materials on biology, chemistry and physics are published. They are addressed to students of primary and lower secondary school. The platform is also equipped with a mini-WWW (, which is a database of articles on this issue equipped with a search engine.
Teachers’ Opinion
E-teacher of Environment is an interesting initiative. The strategy of using multimedia to teach science can be used both in primary and secondary schools. To facilitate the use of the resources you can use the guide. The entire material is attractive and ready to use in school. Interesting lesson scenarios may be useful to every teacher.
Students’ Opinion
The site contains useful materials for learning biology, chemistry and physics. E-tutorials are designed in an attractive way. Presentations show natural phenomena in interesting way. A good option is to search engine if you are looking for information on the topic.

My approbation is mathematics, but I looked through the description of the project with interest and then I looked through the materials from the website of the University which realized the project. I think that offered methodological materials for teachers prepared on the basis of lessons via E-teacher are in my view on the excellent level; appropriately written also for teachers-beginners; they are containing everything that teacher needs to know. I haven´t given the opportunity to students to rate this project, I have just described them the other possible way of teaching.


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.
