Description of the initiative
- The context
Sometimes teachers need to use used alternative and innovative teaching approaches. Students - and teachers as well - needs learning by doing e.g. while handling the telescope or organizing a skype-session.. Some students needs to improve their motivation for science and technology quite a lot. With this project we will use the practical approach to explain subjets like mathematics or physics
- The activities
• Observe the moon, planets and stars with identical instruments from different regions of Europe
• Search for good places to look at the sky
• Visit observatories, planetariums and astronomical institutes
• Processing data
• Resolving problems arising with the observations
• Exchanging information with partners
• Building an internet platform
• Creating and presenting products
• Learning the appropriate vocabulary
• Investigating the mythology of stars and constellations

The aims
• To increase motivation in science, technology, mathematics and nature by means of observing the universe.
• To get students familiarize with different technologies (e.g. telescope, cameras, ICT).
• To practise students and teachers interdisciplinary thinking.
• To approach systematical scientifical teamwork.
• To explore and understand different cultures and ways of living in Europe.
• To train foreign languages.
The results achieved
A vocabulary of astronomical terms
A guide of the galaxy
A star calendar
Some diaries (blogs) about the outdoor experiences
A guide of space stations
More Information
The practical approach to project activities is very suitable for the age of the students. This promotes accountability, teamwork and autonomy. Another advantage is that it is an interdisciplinary project in which converge different areas of knowledge. The project has varied activities in which the active participation of students is sought.
The results are presented in a somewhat disorderly on the website where there are links that do not work and it is hard to navigate. Perhaps where you a better view of results is in the activities section
Teachers’ Opinion
Astronomy is an area with very little presence in the curriculum of secondary education, at least in Spain. Sounds like a good idea to promote knowledge of this science through a European project.
Students’ Opinion
For students it is very motivating part in a project like this where the activities have a practical nature and the scope is European. The project provides an opportunity to experience other cultures and develop other skills.

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.
