Description of the initiative
Dienneti is the “in extenso” acronym standing for “Didactic and New Technologies”. The initiative was born in 1998 from an idea by Marzia Fontana. Initially it was hosted into a free web space, later it had an own space and domain. The community and the press like the initiative that immediately became one of the most qualified and eminent benchmark among the online resources centres for the educational system and the didactic in general. is an independent website and is totally for free. It provides and refers a number of resources and materials rigorously and accurately selected among many according to strict quality of contents and presentation requirements.
The website is continuously updated and properly organized. It addresses school operators, students, scholars and everyone who would like to use reliable and already selected results. It could be helpful in spite of getting lost among the too much huge and generic results provided by the common online search engines.
The portal users demonstrated to appreciate very much the attention paid by Dienneti to the resources and materials in Italian language. These are considered well oriented to the practical and free use in the framework of several educational disciplines, scholastic management, study and research and educational process in general.
The contents, available in a wide selection of languages, are into the “Aree disciplinari” (“Disciplinary Areas”) section where they are organized by the main educational disciplines.
The section “Percorsi tematici” (“Thematic paths”) provides many paths on the same topics of the previous section and more.
Other learning path and reviews of didactic commercial software are available into the “Archivio” (“Archive”) section. The website wants to provide objective description on these software. It is explicitly specified that the portal has not intent or interest in advertising or encouraging specifically the use of none of these software.
More Information
As the website’s content offers a large amount of didactic materials for the principal scientific areas, it seems obvious to think that varied needs of the users are satisfied.
The source of this materials is as much various as the needs and allowed to find resources either in national languages or english.
For each subject there are different types of materials.
Speaking of physics, the user interested in the subject could choose between:
-research path
-notes and booklets
-didactical games
-a large selection of applets
Teachers’ Opinion
Overall rating: very extensive site for both the disciplinary scope and the school level. The users can find several kind of resources, including some excellent link. Among the latters I point out the followings:
- Elementary particle physics: good.
- Physics, waves and music: good.
- Cabinet of Physics: Excellent.
- Physics on Youtube: excellent.
The language courses are initially free of charge, but in order to continue, after the registration it is necessary to pay.
Students’ Opinion
The most remarkable think of this website is the existence of thematic paths that give the possibility to deepen scolastic topics or simply to distract reading some tips.
Very useful the opportunity to perfect the thematic choice.

The variety of the contents allow a large access of different users.

• 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)?
This is a very big educational portal, in which each student can find "its piece of cake" – what is he/she interested in. For example from chemistry Ptable - Dynamic periodic system, where everyone has the opportunity to learn about the elements a lot of information, all in one place. Some of the materials are immediately translated into Slovak, which is great. I will certainly look at this website with my students and I think they will be very interested.
• What do you think are the possibilities of the selected project to be successful in increasing students' interest in studying science subjects?

Student - Simona Guzmická
This is a great site and project. Everyone can find there something that interests him/her. While searching for particular issue, one can learn lots of new information. From their offer, I was impressed for example, by geography, great stuff!


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.
