Implementation of “The birds are singing”! (SOI-RO-58)

My name is Elena Vladescu, I teach Physics and I am part of the Romanian User Group of the Europeana Education project. I chose to implement ‘’The Birds are singing‘’ in the frame of the “Sound” chapter from Physics Romanian curriculum. The Learning Scenario was created by Işıl Gülmez, Europeana Ambassador for Turkey.

Introduction

I introduced, in short, the Europeana Collections website. I explained the objectives of the lesson. Students were divided into teams and provided with worksheets. They used their own devices – phones or tablets for Quiver software, but also school computers for the lesson.

Implementation

My pupils were familiar with Quiver from a previous activity. They worked with enthusiasm. Many of them confessed that the recordings of birdsongs hosted on the Europeana platform impressed them a lot!

The pupils could hardly decide which birds to choose because many songs were very beautiful! I can still hear them saying: “Quiet! Listen to this song!”

Conclusions

My students were very impressed by the Europeana curated set of birdsongs, more than by the AR software!

As a result, each group chose to make presentations with five birds each, not only one, like in the implemented learning scenario.

As a Physics teacher, I found this learning scenario very useful in my teaching. Why? Because the “Sound” chapter was, this way, much more attractive for my students.
