  1. 1. Student-directed learning: MicroGlobalScope in the classroom Dejan Boskovic Biology teacher Elementary school “Ivo Andric” Belgrade, Serbia
  2. 2. Introduction • During the past few years we were working on our main goal which became the brand of our school – making projects for science popularisation.
  3. 3. • As a teacher of natural science I am facing problems with large lesson plans which do not alow much time for developing some of the important student skills such as observing, analyzing, reasoning and initiative.
  4. 4. • Science House Foundation, our colaborator, provided us with technology for microscoping.
  5. 5. • Also, Science House Foundation provided us with platform for learning and presenting the results: http://www.microg lobalscope.org/
  6. 6. • Within each class students were given to choose what to microscope related to the specific topic. Also, students had to find a way how to introduce and incorporate their findings into the lesson unit. Project
  7. 7. • For example, pupils conducted the experiment with rose petals to explain the changes in nature caused by pollutants.
  8. 8. • Most importantly, the students themselves choose what to learn. They decided which parts of the lessons are worth more attention.
  9. 9. • Their findings are presented in the form of blog posts. Each article was like a small lesson with the corresponding micrographs and movies. They also commented on other student's results.
  10. 10. • Students wanted to share their experiences in working with the microscope with other children. That is why we participated in the international festival of science in our city. Science fair
  11. 11. • This inspired us to organize a school science fair, with less visitors and participants than the international festival of science, but it was more beautiful because it was ours.
  12. 12. • I can not claim that students have improved they knowledge and that they would have learned less using conventional way of teaching. What I know is that they gained some new skills and had the joy of participating in the mentioned activities. Conclusion
  13. 13. Thank you for your attention
