Using SWAY to better study Optics

My Physics class and I got through an exciting experience at Hight School Liceo Volta in Milan (Italy)

The whoole classroom started with the usual work and posted papers and compositions about our Optics Laboratory Experiences in a common repository , complete of photos and videos of the experimentations they did.

Then a group of six students decided to examine in dept some more interesting aspects.  So they started analyzing selected optical technological applications and phoenomena.

We followed  Innovative Design Thinking method.… Visit the author's original post

The School of the Future is here!

problems

You can’t solve the educational problem in the XXI century School if you don’t change your mind!

Teachers need technologies and a Metod to support their changes in daily didactis. So now is born “Innovative Design Thinking for teachers”. This Metod use simple instruments scheduled from team management courses and creative models of learning. 100 italian teachers refined it during 2 years. Now 160 complete projects are present on the site http://www.innovazioneinclasse.it/: look at them!

I like very much to project my MIEE activities using “Innovative Design Thinking” to meet educational goals with my students.… Visit the author's original post

My perfect school-kit

A few days ago I received the new Windows based Aspire Switch 10 by Acer.

It is a wonderful device: tablet & notebook all in one! You can easely plug and remove the keyboard when required.

Small and light, it is perfect for use in mobility. It fits perfectly in my BYOD classroom.

Look at my school toolkit: tradition & Cloud together!

Thanks to the pluggable keyboard it is possible to write documents and use complex programs so fully enjoying Office 365 incredible power and work everywhere on my OneNote files.… Visit the author's original post

Flavia Giannoli

MIlan, Italy


My name is Flavia, I’m from Italy!

I teach Physics and Mathematics at Liceo Scientifico A. Volta in Milan, Italy (High School). I love e-learning and Technologies,that I’ve been using for years in the classroom.

I think that disruptive technologies are challenging traditional School Learning. Boundaries are blurring: formal mix up with informal, real with virtual, the teacher with the learner. Liquid modernity takes on school a great responsibility. Education became a lifelong learning journey. Learning experiences need to be designed and carefully projected.Visit the author's original post

Collaborative learning with Onenote

It’s important to learn using Web 2.0 tools, and the teacher had to gradually improve her student’s tech skills. So I started proposing a collaborative online work to my 1B and 1F (14-15 years old) students. We are used to work in a Moodle Classroom.

They have to read a fun little book on Physical problems and then re-write their own version of their selected content using our ONENOTE common block:

onenoteStudents can read in  ”consegne” all the information about required steps in collaborative work, projected according rules of the “Innovative Design of Didactis” ( http://www.innovazioneinclasse.it/).… Visit the author's original post

School Learning Disruption

enterDisruptive technologies are challenging traditional School Learning.

Boundaries are blurring: formal mix up with informal, real with virtual, the teacher with the learner.

Liquid modernity takes on school a great responsibility.

Education became a lifelong learning journey. Learning experiences need to be designed and carefully projected.

Look at my presentation  at National Convenction Sirem Siel 2014 (Italy): http://www.slideshare.net/almitra/the-xxi-century-school-learning-disruption

Project proposes a new way to set up learning activities using Open Resources, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Flipped Classroom modality. The Project intends to rebuilt traditional didactics of Mathematics and Physics in two classrooms (third year of Scientific Lyceum).Visit the author's original post
