    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The laboratory activities, through direct experimentation, foster the acquisition of competences and critical skills for teaching life sciences and sustainability in nursery and primary schools, with particular reference to the interaction between key concepts and the objectives of specific disciplines.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course will carry out some educational activities related to ecological consciousness and sustainability.
    In each module, however, the key concepts of the chosen theme will be recalled (with further details) so that students who do not attend the course can still easily follow the lessons.
    The activity will be divided into modules and will consist in the active planning of educational paths aimed at kindergarten and primary school students (based on the National Indications 2012) operated by the students divided into groups .
    At the end of the course the students will be able to:

    •  identify the key concepts of a scientific topic;
    • build educational paths that apply the scientific method to the study of reality; 
    • develop educational projects on sustainability.

     

    TEACHING METHODS

    The workshop prefers an active approach and applies the methods of collaborative learning and learning by doing.
    Students will mainly work in groups with a return and discussion phase in plenary and with a peer review of the work done.

    Some outside activities are forseen.

    If won't be possible, for health reasons, to carry out the lessons in presence, the workshop will be carried out remotely, streaming on the Teams platform.

     

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    Three modules dedicated to the study of plant life, the human body and sustainability, respectively, will be indicatively realized.
