2011 Project Partnerships:
Physical Computing / Robotics , Centro de Formação Dr. Rui Grácio – PT
This project intend to develop the use of Physical Computing as a teaching-learning tool to give students chance to learn by enjoying that process with high level of motivation, creativity and scientific attitude.
The schools have a very limited contact with the new world of technology changing faster and faster. Teachers didn’t have chance in initial or in-service training to improve didactic strategies using this new technological tools and new methodologies that Science has recently created. Technology Enhanced Learning is therefore an important process to adapt the teaching-learning to the evolution of society, promoting the growing of Science and Technology education at school, in order to help both teachers’ and students’ development, creativity and motivation to teach and to learn.
