More Information
This project, centered on Vocation Educational Training, is very interesting and its areas of interest play a key role in the modern methodology applied in classes. It brings together new technologies with a more natural way of learn through problem solving, which is the basis for vocational training. It can be taken as an update for every teacher in these fields.
The project site is mainly filled with videos which show the training and tutorials included in the project. But also there is a description of the methodology in a dedicated area:
You can find:
An e-learning area
A e-guide
The main videos are grouped in one page:
The PBL methodology is treated as well:

Teachers’ Opinion
The point of this project is to provide better ways to achieve progress in students at class by doing discovering during solving problmes. The methodology is know already. But the idea of including e-learning and video and mix them is new and it is what this project has shown to us. The main problems are however that a bit of knowledge and training is necessary to make these activities (mainly making videos). And the students lose focus on important concepts sometimes in favour of lesser important things. But overall, the experience is encouraging and prone to better results. It is expected that, over the time, these methodology matures and produces even better products.
Students’ Opinion
Students are suprisingly more ready than first expected to work with these methods. They find it natural to use new technologies, like e-learning and video. Therefore they find it easy and exciting to use them for academic purposes. That, and PBL transforms classes in something total fun. They wish all subjects could undergo this methodology

The aims of the project are the good approach to the use of new technologies in classroom.
I like the PBL methodology. Sometimes I used something similar.
Using social networks is necessary nowadays and students are used to them.
The e-learning is not a new idea today, but we have to improve the methodologies. This project seems to go in the right direction.

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.
