Vocational secondary school in Krupina
teacher involved
Topics related to the resource
basic and fundamental chemistry, material science, life chemistry
Examples of learning objectives
- to learn basic and fundamental chemistry topic as periodic table on secondary school
- to show students the characteristics of the elements in an entertaining and didactic way
Practical information regarding the use
of the site/simulation...
- this resource is very easy to find, to open and very intuitive and user friendly to work and open all elements and videos
Information about the class
- vocational secondary school in Krupina, 13 students in age about 15 years old,
- it is important to say, that this web page was selected as basic starting point for this students to show what is t he periodic table a nd what are chemistry elements as well
- this level of students is very basic in science topic, especially in chemistry however this school is focusing on education food production
Suggestion for use
- before starting the work with the resource, the teacher briefly introduced pupils students about periodic table – what was done many times before – and how can use and shows this web page
- students in 3 groups for 4 shows elements step by step from the basic elements
- teacher explain each video separately and repeated what exactly was happened on this video as chemistry reaction
Insights into student
use / thinking
- students showed intense interest during watching the videos. They asked several questions which triggered further discussion and offered the opportunity for knowledge expansion.
- students also participated with a lot of enthusiasm and were very satisfied with this for them new approach and reactions were very positive
- on this school and in this conditions is not very common to use something new as education with internet or something not very traditional
- students showed this portal on 3 computers and only basic elements as hydrogen, oxygen, iron, copper, aluminium, silicon, phosphorus, chlorin , argon, magnesuim and sodium.
Teacher’s conclusions
- it was a first time that we used this way of education directly in class
- is was very important to prepare students for this way and explain each video
- we are focusing on basic elements and elements which are important for food industry
- the resource provided interesting insights how to learn this topic in interesting and inreactive way
- the portal is a valuable tool in teaching periodic table and students found this portal easy to use and very interesting
- for this students it was very good and very useful education experience for your future orientation

National Reports on successful experiences to promote lifelong learning for chemistry The national reports on chemistry successful experiences to promote lifelong learning for chemistry are now available on the related section of the project portal. The reports presents examples of successful experiences in the partner countries and the results of testing of ICT resources with science teachers.
