NZEB for Enhancing STEM skills and motivating Students
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015,
Date de fin: 31 oct. 2017
The project "Enhancing NZEB for STEM skills and motivating Students" is presented by the Liceo Ruffini in partnership with six other schools from Denmark, Finland, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, France and the Netherlands. The strategic partnership we propose is focused on three main topics:
1. the teaching of STEM (Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Maths) by analyzing concrete problems and current challenges, such as energy efficiency in public buildings
2. the development of selfentrepreneurial skills, even in general secondary schools, where many students are interested in starting the profession at the end of university studies
3. methodological innovation through the use of ICT and learning methods on the field, on the job, cooperative learning and blended mobility
The project is based on a careful analysis of the needs and aims to meet the challenges posed by the EU noth through the ET2020 objectives and through the objectives on energy and environmental concerns.
The general objectives are:
o Implement processes of education and training using new technologies
o reinforce the centrality of the student as part of a flexible educational process to enhance the motivation to learn, the ability to build its own training program, a sense of responsibility with respect to the future path
o Decline the teaching of STEM disciplines on concrete and up-to-date issues
o Deepening CLIL
The specific objectives are:
o stimulate students' interest towards a knowledge proposed by experimenting with forms of learning on the job in real situations, more stimulating than those simulated
o instill skills of self-orientation and train students to have confidence in themselves, demonstrate initiative, flexibility, openness to change
o acquire skills in the use of a Content Management System and software for the control and calculation of energy loss, data processing, spreadsheets and presentations
o Teaching students and staff of the school to behave differently and reach a more rational use of energy
o Solicit institutions to invest in energy saving in order to free up resources that could be used in projects that enrich the knowledge of the pupils and the teachers
o Develop a collaborative learning, utilizing the expertise and knowledge of others (peers, teachers and professionals)
The project will directly involve 10 students from each partner school, of which 30% with fewer opportunities, aged between 16 and 18 years related to the courses of Applied Sciences in the activities of non-formal learning and based on field research anche on the 'application of STEM disciplines to innovative theme of NZEB. Specifically, 15 events (seminars, lectures and workshops, as well as experiences on the field and on the job) will be organized, taught by teachers at the school in collaboration with experts that are part of networks of stakeholders that NESS aims to involve. 40% of seminars wil be in CLIL. 4 blended mobility are also foreseen, which will consist of 30 days of virtual mobility through TwinSpace and GoogleClass and 5 days of physical mobility in Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands and Finland. The project also includes the integration of the disciplines involved in the programs (Physics, Mathematics, Science and Technical Drawing) of some topics to be covered during the normal teaching, so as to reach students not directly involved in the activities and ensure greater impact and sustainability .
The methodologies used are:
- Inquiry-based learning
- Learning on the job and on the field
The training on the job requires that stakeholders inviting classes to make study visits and practical workshops to enable pupils to understand the various concrete applications of the topics they are working on, giving them an outlook for the future choice of university and work.
At the end of the activities the students will have acquired skills in STEM, basic and transversal, as self-employment, skills and digital English language.
NESS makes the involvement of stakeholders (policy makers, representative organizations, thematic networks) as a strength point; the activities of the project will be organized within the framework of EUSEW 2016 and 2017 and will produce important final products such as:
- The Decalogue "10 Actions to Save Energy"
- The final report on the positive actions
- Data collected by the students on the energy consumption of their school buildings
thus ensuring a major impact at local and European level. The project aims to produce lasting results cultural approach that both students as teachers will adopt in their relationship with the environment around them, the world of work and teaching techniques.
