In 2015 it was involved in an Erasmus+ KA1 project. 21 teachers and 4 administrative employees took part to a training courses in England, Spain and Malta. To improve and consolidate the skills of all school staff (teachers and administrative employees), the goals of the training have been the following: - to train a group of teachers able to offer CLIL paths; - to enhance the teaching of the foreign language in order to offer the students more opportunities to find a job; as regards the administrative employees our objective is to improve the relationships with foreign students and their families to facilitate integration; - to use better ICT in teaching and in every daily practice, to meet the needs of digital native users and to make more productive work in class; - to acquire Project Management competences to carry out new Erasmus Projects better.
In our electronics, mechanical and computer science departments we teach robotics as a subject of study; our students study and design automation and data acquisition systems , handling of robotic arms, augmented reality. We use the Arduino board as a basis for the development of projects; we also use other boards or devices and Logo educational robot kit. We also teach the basis of robotics to the students of our Liceo, from Scratch (to the younger students) to Arduino. Next year our school will participate to the national competition organized by our Ministry of Education called “Olimpiadi di Robotica – Robotics Olympic games”; the categories we’ll enrol our devices to are robot dance, sumo robot, football, rescue.
