Description of the initiative
The consortium seeks to innovatively implement ICT-based learning materials, remoteexperiments, and e-didactic methods into formal and non-formal lifelong learning settings. It will enhance and modernize science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curricula, foster student creativity and motivation, and develop
professional skills and insights about the impact of evolving technologies. The organized training courses for teachers, future authors of learning materials and modules, and museum employees
will build the e-didactic competences in the STEM by providing remote lab work explanations, offering practically-oriented approaches for strengthening educational programs and technical practices. During the training, at least 100 teachers will integrate at least one learning module into their curriculum, test them in their
classrooms, and encourage their students to apply what they learned in a final project.
The six comprehensive learning modules with remote experiments in English and the
national languages of the partners will be prepared based on the target groups’
requirements. The learning and teaching materials will be incorporated in an e-
platform with personalized learning environment. The remote experiments as a part of the OLAREX museum exhibition will emphasize hands-on experience, and context-based learning, making this output a unique nonformal e-learning tool. The above activities will assure the project aims: (1) to define the school/academia ICT needs for knowledge and skills in the STEM; (2) to build teachers’, students’, and museum employees’ e-didactic competences in the STEM; (3) to develop practically oriented learning modules
with remote experiments and integrate contents and functionalities in e-learning portal;
(4) to enhance and modernize the teaching/learning tools and methods for formal and nonformal lifelong learning institutions; (5) to initiate the school enterprises linkage.
More Information
The methodology provides cooperation between educational institutions and work places. The methodology may be included in various forms of training. Training materials included in the e-environment, ensuring the availability and time savings by upgrading the learning process, through learning resources in electronic form, with focus on the next job according to their specialization.
Teachers’ Opinion
Initiative Open learning approach with remote experiments initiative is recommended for teachers working in science related subjects. There are 6 training modules offered to be selected for training based on the requirements of the target audience. It’s useful for whole class learning a specific topic and strengthening their knowledge in it. The initiative promotes creativity, develops analytical skills and systematic approach. At the end of the learning process, it is possible to apply the knowledge gained on the job, in conjunction with engineering, mathematics, technology, and it's modernization. Thereby, it is promoting and progressing jobs and cooperation of educational institutions. The methodology is available in the national language and English as well.
Students’ Opinion
I liked it! It was a new experience.

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.
