Description of the initiative
The main objective of the project is to increase students' interest in the continuation of learning in the later stages of education in the fields of critical importance to knowledge-based economy: technical, mathematical, scientific subjects and develop skills in using ICT.
The final product: Model-school work using innovative working methods and modern information technology. The final product is "interdisciplinary program of extra-curricular activities conducted by the project" implemented in the school, in higher education and the Copernicus Science Centre Science Centre or another. The final product consists of:
1) "An interdisciplinary program of extra-curricular activities conducted by the project". The product is accompanied by 36 video tutorials course of experiments conducted in the framework of the course.
2) "The concept of the use of e-learning" in the form of a guide for students and teachers. The guide contains information about the technical requirements for the implementation of the platform and the possibility of its use during the ongoing classes.
3) guide "How to use the project method", which contains a description of project activities and a description of the implementation of the program of extracurricular activities conducted by the project.
4) Tools to diagnose the interests of pupils learning science (for teachers).
More Information
The result of the Model of extra-curricular work using innovative working methods and modern information technology project is an interesting "Interdisciplinary program of extra-curricular activities". It is designed to be implemented in the school classroom and away at university or Science Centres (
The program includes instructional videos, which facilitate its implementation. This model includes an interdisciplinary approach. Lessons cover issues of several subjects with references to examples from real life. E.g. Chemistry, physics and mathematics in the kitchen and in the bathroom.
Teachers’ Opinion
The curriculum combining several subjects is very interesting. The topics are well matched to the level of students. Ten thematic areas were comprehensively developed. Suggested topics, such as: "Metals around us," or "How to live ecologically" fit well the lower secondary school curriculum. Another helpful feature for teachers are guides how to use the materials in teaching.
Students’ Opinion
Lessons scenarios are interesting. It is easier to understand various issues when they are presented with examples from everyday life. Lessons provide interesting examples of experiments that can be performed at home.

Very extensive initiatie. A lot of materials which can be use as part of educational projects and lessons. Great correlation between subjects.


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.
