Go outside and learn!

2011  |  

GOALGo outside and learn! (GOAL). This is the project led by a Galician school with its European partners. It's a perfectly planned  and coordinated project, which - as we can see from the results of the final assessment made - has changed the view that many students had of maths.

Measuring ramps, making sextants to calculate the height of buildings, recreating  Eratosthenes' experiment to measure the circumference of the Earth or calculating the number of trees in the region are some of the activities that students have developed “on the land”. Students have gone beyond the classroom walls to carry out field work.

Activities are adapted to students from different levels and they include aspects like education for values and education for peers. Thus, the sextants created by some students are used by the partners, and students have created tutorials about the use of various ICT tools, whose number and variety are one of the main features of the project. As well as using the tools in the eTwinning platform, such as TwinSpace and the Project Diary, we have used specific software and videos have been made, in addition to videoconferences, chats and presentations, and a social network has even been created with Mixxt.

Maths are thus dealt with in a new and motivating way,  in a real context, at the same time that linguistic skills are improved and the European dimension in education is developed, all of this in a clearly collaborative framework.
