  Sin categoría

Five schools in Spain have already implemented different PLATON interdisciplinary inquiry-based activities.

The Sagrado Corazón school in Salamanca, has carried out PLATON’s activities and methodology in the subjects of biology and geology, physics and chemistry and computer science, a complete interdisciplinary approach. They have implemented the activity on the extinction of dinosaurs in the fourth year of secondary education.

In the Montes Orientales school in Granada have carried out two PLATON activities. They have carried out the activity of photosynthesis with students of the first year of secondary education and the activity of nanotechnology in the first year of high school. You can see their fantastic work through the following padlet: https://padlet.com/biologiamencia/hi0yz5o8zzjc

The Colegio Maristes Champagnat in Badalona has developed the EMR and health activity in the subjects of biology and geology, and technology with students of the first year of secondary education, within the unity of the atmosphere.

In the Corazón de María school in Gijon, PLATON’s activities and methodology have been based on the subject of scientific culture in high school.  You can see in the following padlet the three activities that have worked: https://padlet.com/rafaelmonterobr/x88ymtpcsj7h

The Nuestra Señora del Carmen school in Portugalete have integrated the activity of exponentials in astronomy into the subjects of mathematics and biology and geology with students of fourth year of secondary education.

All of them has shared their experience with PLATON team, and some of the feedback that we have received from them is that they have noticed how their students have learned and corrected misconceptions with the PLATON activities, and they emphasize the interdisciplinary approach of the activities. On another note, the students have told that activities are entertaining and different to the practices they are used to do, and that they have learnt things they didn’t know and didn’t expect.

Thank you very much to all the schools, teachers and students that have get involved in PLATON project, we hope you continue developing the PLATON methodology in your schools.

If you are an interested teacher, school or student don’t hesitate to contact us, we will be very pleased to support you.

Within the framework of the European project PLATON: Promoting innovative Learning Approaches for the Teaching Of Natural science, several open resources have been created and made available to the entire educational community. All the resources are on the PLATON website, http://platon-project.eu/, in the e-Agora section, and all of them are available in English, Greek, Portuguese and Spanish.

Among the resources that you can find there, is the 3D Interdisciplinary Map of Science Ideas, which allows to introduce an interdisciplinary approach in the science class. In addition, there are the interdisciplinary inquiry-based activities related to different science topics, perfect to work science through the PLATON methodology in the classroom.

There is also a series of Massive Open Online Courses, which will allow teachers to learn the PLATON methodology in a simple way and develop their teaching style by adding inquiry practices.

Within the PLATON project, the assessment of the students is of great value and for this purpose specific assessment materials have been developed adapted to the activities proposed in PLATON.

Don’t miss the opportunity to take a look at all the resources available on PLATON e-Agora to learn more about the PLATON methodology and start working it in the classroom.
