Description of the initiative
There are puclished methodological materials in physics subject content and pedagogical process for innovative continuing education at upper secondary level. Paying particular attention to the implementation of mainstream physics in vocational schools where prerequisites are considerably smaller than mainstream schools, there is offered innovative subject content structure, emphasizing the physics of general knowledge on the identification of existing student life experience of its further development chosen profession. Set of materials designed for independent creative activity physics teacher, creating their own innovative programs is the subject of today's secondary schools.
Methodological material formed group of authors from the project Lead Partner - Latvian University and the project partners - University of Liepaja, Daugavpils University and Rezekne Higher Education teachers and didactics sub-doctoral students.
More Information
Training tool/book for teaching physics for Latvian teachers. In general, it is an useful learning tool for teachers in the learning process for structuring the learning program, for use as synopsis material in vocational education system lessons, as well in the general education system as an additional learning tool. For teachers, this book can be useful for an interesting role in shaping students' motivation for further interest to the subject matter of physics. The text of this book can be used as a material in students' group work in the analysis of specific topics.
Teachers’ Opinion
This textbook summarizes information on physics issues in an understandable way, based on practical examples from the students' life experiences that they have understood and customary. Textbook as an additional source of information useful for the general education system, as well as vocational education system. The positive momentum of this training tool is that's simple and understandable way of recital, that enables students motivation to learn physics concepts and regularities. As the synopsis can also be used by science students for repetition of physics questions.
Students’ Opinion
Physics textbooks are often complex. This is a synopsis of the topic in which you can re-read about topics that are not clear.

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.
