FotografiaWe are back to celebrate the Erasmus Days! The Don Adriano Bragazzi complex of the Maria Montessori Comprehensive Institute in Terracina has reopened its doors to welcome teachers and professionals in the sector who share experiences and good practices in the activities of the Erasmus+ programme.
This year’s event involved three teachers from France and Croatia participated.
After the welcome greetings of the Head of School, Prof.ssa Barbara Marini and the video message of the National Coordinator of INDIRE Dr.ssa Sara Pagliai, work has opened with the presentation of the project BIG GAME (2021-1-FI01-KA220-SCH-000024098) by the teachers Emma Tucciarone and Graziella Gazezellini. It is a strategic partnership involving schools, universities and associations from four EU countries, particularly Finland, as coordinator, Estonia, Romania and Italy.
The experimental project, lasting two and a half years from 1 December 2021 to 31 May 2024, aims to encourage motivation in the study of science subjects through digital gaming; to support creative development in students; to use the attractiveness of play and technology; to improve social inclusion and equal opportunities, and to increase the sense of community and European citizenship.
The students of the Institute, as Professor Gazzellini said, have already started to work enthusiastically on the project presenting two scenarios on the environmental issues: the river infested by killer shrimp in the countryside of Terracina and the radioactive waste from the Latina nuclear power plant spilt into the sea.
