Take your Ipads, go out
Students go field trips in nature around with their Ipads. They take photos and videos defining the season of the year. Students will prepare a digital wall on padlet themed with season with the photos and videos. They will get acquainted with the appropriate tools and applications to work with the recorded material. This task will help the students to build and develop the so-called 21st-century skills, especially collaboration, teamwork, creativity, imagination, critical thinking and problem solving.

In May and June, Italian teachers from IC2 Giovanni Pascoli asked the to document the changes in nature. The period coincided with the relaxation of restrictions from Covid-19 and it gave the pupils the opportunity to live this important moment in freedom.
The students engaged themselves by photographing the wonders of nature that is reborn in the spring both in their gardens or houses and scattering around the countryside, during the first timid bicycle tours after a long period of quarantine. We saw in their shots the desire to start enjoying freedom again, to regain possession of their territory and all the gifts of nature.
Some pictures are also accompanied by small compositions, haiku, short poems that use sensory languages to capture a feeling or an image. They are often inspired by natural elements, a moment of beauty or an exciting experience.
