1 Progetto Highlights for High School Education system in Italy Fall, 2009 Presentation for the students of Presentation for the students of MIT MIT

2 Where we are: Lombardy Crema, Milano, Gallarate, Busto Arsizio Crema, Lombardia Duomo in downtown Crema

3 Education System Stages Pre-school school _____________________ Primary school Middle school High school

4 High school 5 years ( ) At the age of 14, students must choose what type of high school to attend: Liceo (more academic): classico, scientifico, artistico Technical schools Vocational schools Compulsory education is required until 16

5 Liceo classico Emphasizes Latin, Greek, Art History, Philosophy

6 Liceo scientifico Focuses on mathematics and science

7 Istituto Tecnico Tecnico Commerciale (Business Studies) Tecnico Industriale (Mechanics, Computer Science) Tecnico per Geometri (Land planning and Environmental Studies) Others

8 High school. Some general facts Timetable: from 28 to 36 teaching hours / week Students come to school either – Every morning, Monday to Saturday or – Monday to Friday, + one or two afternoons

9 High school. Some more … About 10 subjects per year No optional subjects Students stay together for all subjects State exam at the end of the 5 years Access to University

10 WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU FOR OUR TEACHERS: - Short presentation of MIT and its teaching methods - Presentation of the Highlights for High School program - Presentation of the Hands on Methodology

11 WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU FOR OUR STUDENTS: - Short presentation of MIT - Short self-introduction - Lessons (the Italian teacher of the subject will be in the classroom with you) - An example of test for each module

12 WHAT KIND OF LESSON? WHAT ? Lessons of biology/ physics/ math/ computer science. Each module (topic) will be 2 to 10 teaching units long HOW ? It s fundamental that topics are presented through a hands on methodology (simple experiments, examples, problems etc)

13 EXAMPLES OF TOPICS Math Class II Second-year students Class III Third-year students Class IV Fourth-year students Quadratic equations (8 hours) Applications: problems; higher degree equations Inequalities (8 hours) Descriptive statistics (8 hours)

14 EXAMPLES OF TOPICS Computer science Class III Third-year students Class IV Fourth-year students Class V Fifth-year students 1) Introduction to programming for students with no programming background: very simple algorithms, variables, operators, conditional statements, looping statements using a programming language like Python 2.5 or higher (4/6 hours) 2) Computer hardware: processor, ram, I/O devices for students with very little background in computer science (2/4 hours) 1) Introduction to Data Base and DBMS: redundancy, inconsistency, integrity, logical and physical data independence, information security (2/3 hours) 1) Distributed systems, computer networks, topologies, routing... for students with little background in computer science (2/4 hours) 2) How to create a professional- looking web page - for students with html programming background (2/3 hours) 3) Computer network security and web security (3/6 hours) for students with medium background in computer science (3/4 hours)

15 EXAMPLES OF TOPICS Physics Class II Second-year students A lesson of two hours on one of the following topics: 1. Work, Power 2. Kinetic Energy, Potential Energy 3. Conservation of Mechanical Energy 4. Temperature and Heat

16 EXAMPLES OF TOPICS Science Class II Second-year students A lesson of two hours on one of the following topics: 1. Virus: general characteristics, spread of infection and diseases 2. Evolution from prokaryotic to eukaryotic cells 3. Eukaryotic cells: general structure, differences between animal and vegetal cells 4. Structure and function of the most important cell organelles

17 ITCG Luca Pacioli, Crema (Cremona) Istituto Tecnico Commerciale

18 Collegio San Carlo, Milano Liceo classico e scientifico

19 ITCG E.Tosi, Busto Arsizio, VA

20 Liceo Scientifico Leonardo da Vinci Gallarate, VA

21 WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS? Selection Direct contact with schools to agree on topics Make a list of the necessary material to bring / youll need in Italy for the lessons, to tell the schools so that they can get organized COME TO ITALY!!!!!

22 The End Snow at Pacioli, winter 2008
