Antimicrobial Resistance #3 – Mutation and resistant bacteria spread (Sequence 2)

The aim of this activity is to help students facilitate students’ comprehension of three key concepts concerning antimicrobial resistance and its connection to the growing environment. The first idea to underscore is that bacteria grow exponentially under ideal environment conditions. The second one is the idea that in some bacterial replication some random DNA mutations can occur, the apparition of this mutations are random. The third idea is that, despite the death of some bacteria due to antibiotic presence in the environment, those that randomly mutate and develop resistance continue to proliferate.

Antimicrobial Resistance #1 – A visit to the doctor (Sequence 2)

The aim of this activity is double. Firstly, to know students’ initial ideas of key elements on the topic of the teaching and learning sequence, including ideas such as pathogenic microorganism, targeted medicine, and antimicrobial resistance. Secondly, presenting the topic of ARM by introducing different medical cases to analyse.

Connecting schools and society #1 – How to prepare a video shoot

The aim of this activity is to foster students’ skill to communicate their own knowledge to others in an interesting and sustainable way. They learn to take the perspective of others and deal intensively with the topic in order to decide what information is relevant and how to present it best. This encourages creativity and deepens their own knowledge. In addition, students learn how to use media professionally and to create educational videos independently of the topic.

Biodiversity #2 – Biodiversity and birds

The aim of this activity was to initiate a collaboration between educational, non-educational and research agents, to raise students’ awareness of science-related careers through a meaningful interaction between experts and students, and to increase students’ interest in science through activities developed in an authentic context related to biodiversity and birds.

Biodiversity #3 – People and nature

We are very pleased to present PEOPLE AND NATURE, a booklet created by the team of the Faculty of Education, University of Ljubljana, in the framework of the Multipliers project (Horizon 2020). As educators, we know that learning goes far beyond the walls of the classroom. It thrives in the fresh air, outdoors and surrounded by the wonders of nature. The aim of this activity is to present biodiversity and ecosystem services as an important socio scientific issue (SSI) both relevant in their everyday life but also, for science. This activity is facilitated by providing students different activities and tools to explore biodiversity in forest, water and wind erosion, sounds, landscape changes etc.

Forests toolkit #5 – Design of sustainable products from forests

This teaching and learning sequence are suitable for students ages 10 -14, concern education for sustainability and integrate several school subjects, e.g., science, technology, entrepreneurship and social science. The open schooling project is performed in collaborations with a science center (Exploratoriet), a cooperative of forest industries (Mera Skog), and Sweden’s research institute and innovation partner (RISE) to involve students in sustainable forest product design. The teaching learning activity contribute to teaching for sustainable development by focussing on creativity processes, as living today requires new strategies to handle the future. The project was named “Skogssnilleblixten”, which roughly translates as a combination of the terms forest and stroke of genius.

Biodiversity and Agriculture #2 – Potato Tasting

The goal of the activity is to pass on the students’ knowledge they have gained from meeting the experts at the farm. They can set up a potato tasting stand which allows the students to sustainably convey knowledge to visitors through hands-on experiences and learning with all senses (taste, smell, appearance, feel).

Clean Water & Sanitation #5 – History Research on Local Water System and Uses

The aim of this activity is to raise awareness of the impact of technological progress on everyday life and of health and hygiene improvements brought about by the advent of drinking and wastewater treatment processes. The project results are shown in panels, designed by the different groups of students in cooperation with the art history and history and water utility experts and can be the object of exhibitions open to other students, families and the general community.
