.Case studies .Case studies

During the first two years of the project the eLene2learn network collected more than 60 case studies, where teachers and students of Secondary and Higher Education provide practical tips and indications on their "first hand" learning experiences using ICT and digital media. This "collection" contains two different types of report:

  • The "How to guide" scenarios describe current practices, tools and methodologies used in the application of ICT to develop learning to learn competencies. The scenarios were collected through Focus Group with students and teachers; Download the printable version of the "How to guide"
  • The Case studies report, in detail the implementation of  practices, methodologies and tools used within real classroom settings. Recommendations and suggestions help you assess the benefit of replicating these practices, methodologies, etc. in your own context. These resources are highly valuable as they come from a direct evaluation by  students and teachers involved.  Some of these resources are (also) partly available in Italian, French, Greek, Finnish, Polish, Spanish and German. If the translations  are available, you can find the translations directly on the sub-pages of each case study. (The most recent Case Studies are listed first on the top); Download the printable version of the Implementation Report.

You can browse the case studies here by Benefits and Tags. The two different type of report can be easily filtered using corresponding tags.

For restoring your filters to the default (blank) settings, just click on the pink button "CLEAR".

.Level (age of students)
Upper Secondary education

Science and Museum Education (Physics, Chemistry, Biology)

.Category of the tool

Open Science Resources

.Language of the tool or resource
EN, EL, DE, FR, PT, FI, IT, HU. The OSR Repository includes numerous educational materials (images of exhibits and scientific instruments, animations, videos, lesson plans, student projects and educational pathways with guidelines for interactive museum visit experiences); educational material is available in the abovementioned languages, as delivered by respective partners. 5 educational pathways, which are voted as the best ones, are translated in EN along with their educational resources.

.Purpose of use
The Open Science Resources (OSR) portal enables teachers to access the finest digital collections in European science centres and museums, to follow educational pathways connecting objects tagged with semantic metadata and to enrich the contents provided with social tags of your own choice.

.Way of use (as individual or group activity; tasks; etc.)
The OSR portal contains educational material in the form of educational content (images of exhibits and scientific instruments, videos, animations, exercises, graphs, links) and of educational pathways (structured and open learning activities organized according the inquiry based pedagogical model). Additionally teachers are able to share or upload educational content by signing in to OSR portal and using the respective tools; under this framework teachers along with their pupils may use already uploaded content, or develop their own, under certain criteria. Username and password are obligatory; partners interested in using the portal should ask for a username and password and then log in.

.Advantages of such a use for Transition. Innovative use
Users can search for the educational materials in the "Explore OSR" section or to upload their own materials to the OSR Repository, using the "Share your Content" section. Open Science Resources Portal enables teachers to develop- through the learning pathways they are asked to deliver -learning to learn competences. Teachers may develop - by using the respective tool- educational pathways tailored to the needs of their pupils, and thus engage them to an innovative approach of science and museum education; i.e. relate an exhibit or series of exhibits to a certain educational pathway, or adapt a delivered to the pupils` needs.
