Scenario based on the latest news of Rosetta’s expedition. How
students can learn through the great achievements of European Space Agency (ESA). Rosetta’s travel in space and the landing of
Philae on comet 67P give us the opportunity to learn Newton’s Laws and to find as real researchers the acceleration of gravity of the
comet. The scenario is finalized using various ICT tools.

CERN laboratory

Mrs. Marina Vladimir Dorocki, Novi Sad, Serbia
Mrs. Marina Vladimir Dorocki

Our target is to familiarize students with the world’s largest physics lab CERN and its contents, using ODS portal. To
understand the basic experiments that are conducted at CERN, as well as why they are important for
humanity. That students know how to transfer what they have learned on the broader masses.
Students will get to know the LHC detectors after all activities, particularly CMS. Students
will know how to convey their knowledge to the scientific and popular way to those who are not
informed about CERN. Students will know how to describe the process of detection of elementary
particles. Students will understand the importance of CERN’s research and they will be familiar with
their future plans. Students will understand the importance of investing resources in basic research
and the implications for the overall benefit of mankind.

Let’s make our school breaks more enjoyable!

Mrs. Noni Iacovou Eleftheriou, Engomi -Nicosia, Cyprus
Mr. Noni Iacovou Eleftheriou

Both students and teachers have observed that most children of our school are not often involved in team playing during school breaks. This results not only to the isolation of some children but also most of them get bored and dissatisfied. Moreover this situation leads to conflicts among them. For these reasons we thought to investigate the matter with students aged 8-9 years old, in order to find solutions or suggestions on how to improve the quality of our school’s breaks.
Τhe purpose of the project is to improve the interpersonal relations of students in order to engage them in a calm and pleasant team playing, leading to more enjoyable breaks.

Multimedia – 6th grade Computer science through Footloose Musical

Ms. Ana - Budojević, Zagreb, Croatia
Mr. Ana - Budojević

The main idea of this scenario was to include as many educational areas (linguistically-communication, art, computer science area) and thus fulfill many learning objectives, as well as general educational goals. In addition, I wanted the time spent in school to be more pleasant and fun for the students. I tried to convince them that the school should not necessarily be synonymous with “torture” and cramming. The musical seemed to be good choice because of its form and Footloose also because of the sociological significance of a story it shows. Footloose connected the sixth and eighth graders and also the ones which were isolated and introverted. “Our” Footloose has enobled all participants, showed that school can be an oasis of fun, joy, creative leisure time, socializing and learning in several ways. The musical has strengthened school culture, the community in which the school operates, which was proved during the premiere show with full hall of proud parents, friends, neighbors, teachers.

RoboTIX

Mr. Carlos Morales Socorro, Telde, Spain
Mr. Carlos Morales Socorro

During the last 13 years I’ve applied Cooperative Learning and Project and Problem based learning
techniques in the classroom. The aim was moving from the traditional content-centered Maths
lessons to a set of real life projects and problems which must be solved by means of Maths, as you
may discover in this Pecha Kucha from 2009: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGlRExeE6PU

The main idea of this project is to include Scratch and Project Based Learning as a tool of Maths
Learning.

The students from 4ºESO designed a robot simulation platform (in Scratch) which was applied and
used by the students of 1ºESO:

Eco-friendly island

Mr. Violeta Violeta Liepina

Human impact on the environment is a topical issue. Climate change caused by human activities has become a pressing problem. Geography lessons include standard education about the environment and interactive teaching methods using modern information technology. The lessons are set up to test and develop students’ skills and knowledge of the effects of climate change and show the choices each person can make to reduce the negative impact on the environment. This is done by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and better understanding of the use of natural resources. A concept of a green island is used to understand the factors that affect the environment.
