Description of the initiative
The context
In recent years , teacher have witnessed, among students, a growing lack of interest towards scientific areas that, inevitable, leads to avoid these subjects, especially Science and Maths, generally perceived as being difficult. “Our Biodiversity” is a project that aims to contribute to a change in perception by promoting a positive approach to science via a real research situation . Teachers and students will be fundamental elements in the process via the development of learning experiences, which incorporate among other strategies, the use of new technologies (including ICT – Information and Communication Technologies), real scientific situations, field trips in order to collect real information. The whole project will be based on continuous collaborative work within each school and the European partnership that will result in workshops, presentations and peer teaching, conducted mainly by students. To increase the value of this partnership, partners will promote training sessions for one another, which will be put in practice and tested during the project.
The activities
make a Biodictionary, field trips in each partner, make a magazine, training sessions.
The aims
# Promote a positive attitude towards Science and Maths.
# Raise awareness of the relevance of Science and Maths in everyday life.
# Share and discuss best practice in Science and Maths teaching and learning.
# Develop innovative strategies and resources, including the use of new technologies.
# Encourage a responsible attitude towards the environment at a local, national and global level
# Develop an understanding of, and respect for, other cultures.
# Improve the use of new technologies.
# Develop a real research experience.
# Be aware of the biodiversity.
# Recognize the role of the statistic in research.
# Use a statistical knowledge to analyze and interpret the results.
# Build a statistical model to facilitate the study of environment.
The results achieved
The results of the project will be available on a common website, regularly updated. The materials and strategies developed during the partnership will be compiled in a booklet, which can be published and disseminated to others. Some of this results are:
A web page with general vision over the project.
A biodictionary
Surveys of teachers and students about the student's motivation in the study of science. Analysis of the results obtained.
A facebook page
More Information
This is the web page of the project:
This is a project that try to reduce the lack of interest of the students about science and maths. Its aim is to join biology and maths with ICT, real experiments and visiting other countries. (, goals: )
It is a not finished project and some of the activities may have not been documented in the web page. They have done trips and there is a collection of fotografies:
The project have a magazine: and other documentation.
Teachers’ Opinion
The resources available are, in my opinion, still incomplete. There are some good ideas, similar to other projects, but is difficult to use the resources in class. The web page is difficult to use and you have to explore entire to find something interesting or to know exactly what they are doing.
The facebook page: seems to be more active than the web. They are doing a hard work and I hope they will expose some documentation and teachers guides.
Students’ Opinion
I visited the facebook group and everything they do seems fun. They are doing trips to the field, travels to other countries and experimenting with nature and maths.
I like maths, but I know some of my friends not. This initiatives can make maths more interesting for us. The web page is ugly and difficult to use, but it is not important, because everyone today uses facebook.

It is really useful because children learn by touching and seeing the real objects. Field trips stimulate their interests in the nature and help their education in science. It also helps forming a healthy lifestyle.


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.
