Implementation of ‘Wind is All Around Us: Let’s Make Electricity’ (SOI-PT-68)

This interdisciplinary Learning Scenario (LS) was implemented by two teachers of Mathematics and Physics with a class of 15-year-olds.

An introduction to Europena

Firstly, students started by researching the Euroepana Collections in order to understand what it is and how it works. They were fascinated by the amount of resources that they could use for a different group of subjects. After that, students were presented with the theme of research and work: Production of electric energy from the wind.

Students work development

Later, students were divided into 3 groups in order to work on the historical and technical evolution of the use of wind as an energy producer.

Each group elaborated a film. Each film described the aspect that they were working on. The groups that studied the current use of the production and the use of electrical energy from the wind made a statistical analysis of the use of renewable energies in Portugal.

Students auto evaluation

By using tools such as Flipgrid and Zipgrade, students had the opportunity to analyse their performance. For instance, they could reflect on the level of learning as well as the development of competencies.

Conclusion

As a conclusion, we can say that students were really engaged in this activity. They were also surprised by how cultural heritage can be used in subjects such as mathematics and physics.
