Complimentary distance learning proposals for teachers and students
Fondazione Golinelli launches Digital Kit for School, a program of free STEAM activities that teachers can offer to students, in the classroom or remotely, enhancing the potential of digital learning. The aim of the initiative - in a particularly complex period for the school world - is to offer continuous and remote educational support with ideas and materials suitable for classroom activity or an integrated teaching path in the classroom, online or completely remotely. This support offers the opportunity for teachers from all over Italy, regardless of their geographical distance from Opificio Golinelli, to discover and experience the Foundation's approach and materials and, if they wish, get in touch with its experts.
The Digital Kit allows you to access a first level of use in which to download in-depth materials for use in the classroom. For more advanced support it is also possible to enroll for free at a second level that allows you to become part of a virtual community, interact with trainers and experts, receive further insights and the certificate of the activities carried out with students. Among the resources available and always with a view to supporting schools free of charge, the digital kit also offers the possibility to enjoy a selection of webinars of particular interest to stu-dents and teachers.
The educational objective of the proposed contents is to further explore the scientific and thera-peutic developments related to the biology of animal, embryonic and adult stem cells, and isola-tion techniques, thanks to the meeting with scientists and researchers experts on the subject.
Suggestions on how to deal with the themes of genetics and biology with students through the modern approach of bioinformatics: the tools will allow the analysis and comparison of genetic sequences, the vision of 3D molecular models and the use of online databases to carry out evo-lutionary analysis.
The material allows to further explore and experiment the mechanisms of evolution and genetic variability enhancing the use of phylogenetic trees as an experiential teaching tool.
The materials allow you to discover how to use Khan Academy resources to customize the study of mathematics in primary and secondary school, with activities to be carried out in the classroom and remotely, enhancing digital tools.
Webinar on the evolution of viruses with Andrea Balboni and Mara Battilani. From animal reser-voirs to humans, the Covid-19 experience is becoming valuable for research to bring out infor-mation about the evolution and transmission of zoonotic infections.
Webinar with Vincenzo Rossi. An in-depth analysis of the intelligence of the plant world and how plants interact with each other and with the outside world.
Is the molecular evolution of viruses linked to an increase in pathogen virulence in human popu-lations, or does it influence the study of vaccines, or the achievement of herd immunity against certain diseases? Has our immune system learned anything from the evolution of these "organ-isms"?
Astrophysics is now at the frontiers of a new era: for the study of supergravity in black holes, as-trophysical phenomena with gravitational waves and neutrinos, the habitability of planets orbiting other stars. What technology is needed for this quantum leap and what answers are we looking for? We talk about it with Sandro Bardelli from INAF.
The history of humanity is written in our diseases that have always shaped and infected politics, society and culture. Epidemiology studies its distribution and frequency in the population, allowing to make predictions about the onset of new diseases and preparing prevention and containment strategies. The guests who will speak at the webinar will be announced shortly.
Webinar with Matteo Cerri on the theme of hibernation. Can man use this strategy to head to oth-er planets and places where perhaps he will live one day? Let us retrace the path of the battle between man and the cold.
