Description of the initiative
Students divided into groups of 6 processed different topics and tasks from chemistry, biology and English with clearly pre-determined timetable. Processing was carried out both on theoretical and experimental levels. The progress during independent work was under revision utilized in a form of discussions between students and professors. The project climax was executed as a three-day presentation for other classes and parents. Evaluation of the project was done through interview, oral feedback from the pupils, minute -minds and a poll.
More Information
This kind of projects are absolut important and should be a part of interactive education in schools. For teachers and esspecially for students are this project very important because are very interactive, they can learn from more aspects and can better understand science approaches in education. On the web page teachers and students can find online –shop and many information for science education especially in chemistry and biology as laboratory works, curricula,videos, films etc.
Teachers’ Opinion
The portal is focused on the analysis of different types of alcohols and their use in industry as well as ordinary day through chemistry, biology and physics. This activity is organized by students of 7th grade focusing on new teaching approaches such as group work, organization of your work, the development of cognitive and social skills, management techniques, and presentation preparation or self-studying. The techniques that students have to cope with such as literature search, Internet search, exchange of ideas, and implementation of various experiments are very interesting. In my opinion this is quite difficult for students at this age but they did it in a great way and they also presented their work. I will use some of the techniques I too.
Students’ Opinion
It is an interesting site, not only for possibility to work with alcohols but also for a different approach from the teacher and for co-operation among students.

This initiative , in my opinion , is very useful for teaching chemistry. Here are combined both theoretical information and practical. There is an opportunity for many chemical processes to acquire video materials, which would be very useful for schools that can not afford all experiments show in person. Theoretical material is also accompanied by a broad and effective imagery. I like the idea that students are divided into groups and each group examine its subject. Own pupil vision of things helps others easily understand the topics. I will definitely use the ideas of the project, in order to strengthen some chemistry topics.


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.
