Description of the initiative
The project aims at creating an interactive environment for teachers and students in order to allow them to develop their own teaching or learning space by adapting the interface and the electronic resources available. The portal gives access to lessons, resources, graphical materials, entry level and interim tests, interesting fact from everyday life, related to a science subject.
More Information
The National educational portal is available only in Bulgarian – it is an initiative of the BG Ministry of education and science and is targeted to BG teachers. The portal offers access to resources like:
- Curricula -
- Electronic lessons and materials -
The e-content offers also tests for students and possibilities to solve problems themselves in order to check how well they studied the lessons.
Teachers’ Opinion
The portal is quite rich in information. The materials developed can be used directly in class. The only thing is that the materials are not very attractive and basically they repeat information from textbooks with some variety of graphical images. The option of testing students however is very good one as is the option to create your own content if you wanted.
Students’ Opinion
It is not a very attractive portal for students. There are no many interesting activities students can do and the materials are not written in very interesting way. Sometimes it is better to read everything from the computer when you study, because it is summarized and has more graphics. It is good to see some tests too because it gives you the idea what teachers might expect from you when they make the midterm exams.

I think the portal is a pretty good idea. It is full of useful information that is readily available.
I think the design could be improved and teachers to recommend it more, because I think one student alone would not be interested.

The educational portal contains too much information. Visiting this site would not be something attractive to a student. It describes many projects, initiatives and material for students of different ages, but in a dry and boring for students way.

This is an attractive gateway for students. The activities that students can do are interesting too, and the materials are written in a very interesting way.

I think that when a student uses the Internet to learn, he will absorb more knowledge than when taught in school only with text books.This is because when we learn from the computer we feel freer, find more information, compact and more images and graphics.
I believe that the information on the site is quite useful and can be used by any student willing to learn something more about the subject concerned.

Full and interesting presentation of information in physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics in the "Learning resources" sub page of the portal. Opportunity for quality learning of many topics. Lack of such information after the 10th grade.

I think that the national education portal is a very good space for students with a lot of material.
I've used it before and I really liked it.

The site is like a library for teachers and students. The information is selected and presented in a very good way. Anyone who is willing to learn new and useful information would use the site.

The site is very convenient, most materials are presented in an interesting way.
Must be filled with more information as it meets the educational content of textbooks.
Must have a mobile version! - A very high percentage of students use tablets and phones, and the materials are not compatible and can not open on most devices.

The website is not very interesting for students, but offers information, which might be used in the education process.

There is a wide selection of information on the portal, but it is not given in an interesting and attractive way. The site is easy to use and easy to reach the desired lesson. After each lesson, there are problems to solve, which help us judge whether we have learned a lesson well enough.

If a student himself is not motivated to learn, no site can do it. As access to resources - the site is quite rich in information, which is quite useful not only for students but also for teachers.
Until now I have not had to do it, but if I ever need will surely try.
At first glance, I can say that there are some differences on the program, in which we are taught and information on a site, but there are resources that would be quite useful to use.

it is easy for a student to navigate through the website. But the lessons are not available. This definitely can decrease the interest of students towards it.

Portal is simple but well made. You can find good and useful information. It is easy to navigate. The thing with schools is super. Quickly, easily and accurately.

This portal not grab the attention of students. However, it is easily accessible, but not very rich in information and pictures. The material can be made as an audio presentation with graphics and animations that will grab the attention of students. The test system is well made, students can understand in advance how the test will look like.

The portal is very easy to navigate. There are many useful resources for all classes, with all materials that match the grade and subject, but currently missing most subjects.

I consider that the information on the portal is very well structured and very intense, but is not particularly attractive to students. I believe it can be successfully used by teachers to design and plan of the learning process. The materials presented here miss the dynamics that grabs the attention of most students. With a good pedagogical approach and appropriately formulated tasks, students can happily use the portal as researchers. In this case they will quickly and easily find information and playing the role of scientists will be a powerful motivation for learning. My experience shows that the method of role playing games is perceived very well by students of all ages. For me this is a great opportunity.

The national education portal is convenient for students and helps teachers.It supports the increasing of e-learning usage in schools. With the portal teachers can make lessons in an innovative way to be more interesting and students learn the material more easily.
One of the best features of the National Education Portal is that it is accessible to absolutely everyone. The only thing you have to do is register, then everything is available to you whether you're a student, teacher or just a curious person.The lessons provided by the educational portal are made easily understandable and interesting for everyone.It gives the opportunity to see the material to be studied in real examples.Thus it facilitates learning and memorizing the studying topics. Its neat and easily you can find your way trough it. In conclusion I think that the National Educational Portal gives fundamentals and hopes for the development of electronic training.

It is interesting to compare the activities of various educational websites from different countries; it is a pity that this one is only in Bulgarian. But it includes e.g. tests which Bulgarian teachers can use directly during their lessons or for home preparations of the pupils. Because of the language, I cannot use it, so I will not use it on my lessons with pupils.
• What do you think are the possibilities of the selected project to be successful in increasing students' interest in studying science subjects?

Student - Rebeca Kaiser
Portal is interesting; it is too bad it is only in Bulgarian. Otherwise it could be used, for example for home learning, for trying out the knowledge through the tests or to find out what and how pupils are being learnt elsewhere. If it was perhaps in English, it would help us to improve ourselves in using special terms in English.

• Why is the project (selected initiative) important?
• Will an initiative/project provide outputs that can help to overcome lack of students´ motivation to study science?
• Do you plan to test given outputs (with your students)?
- The project is interesting and important from the complex point of view. It was created by Bulgarian Ministry of Education and Science in 2010 as a digital educational content for primary and secondary schools for all subjects. It corresponds to the national curriculum. Digital educational content is complex; it is offering environment for teacher and also working/learning environment for students. There is also created space for e-learning, electronic learning lessons (videos, interactive exercises, animations, images) and materials. In Slovakia, we use similar digital portal The Planet of knowledge.
- In certain extent, the project offers the solution how to increase the students´ motivation to learn science subjects for the 21st century. I appreciate its complexity and variability. It offers a lot of educational materials to teachers, which they can combine in various ways. So it is on the teachers how they decide to teach, which methods and techniques they will choose to arouse their students’ motivation
- During my lesson I use The Planet of knowledge, similar project done in Slovakia, in Slovak language.
• What do you think are the possibilities of the selected project to be successful in increasing students' interest in studying science subjects?

• it is mainly about individual student work
• it offers quality content, a lot of animations, exercises, simulations of the natural phenomena, which are helping students to better understand the natural regularities

The national educational portal is very rich in information and animations that can not always be demonstrated during the study of physics. It is a great tool for a whole lesson, and part of the lesson. The lessons in portal finish with tasks for students, which is very appropriate to reinforce the learning because students immediately see the result, and if wrong they are sent back directly to the material which was not learned. Unfortunately, for an year I can not use it because the lessons in sciences are temporarily unavailable ....


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.
