How local monuments and points of interests can become keys to link learning topics into STEAM activities. A review of examples and practical activities for the classroom.
Do we know the monuments of our territory? In this activity we invited students to investigate the monuments of their territory for their promotion through digital technologies and, in particular, visual block programming and 3D modeling. The classes, organized in groups, had the opportunity to develop two investigative paths, one mathematical-technological for the design of the structure through the composition of solids, the other historical-artistic for the research of information and curiosities related to the chosen monument. About 900 teachers were instructed via a dedicated webinar at national level and provided with an activity plan and materials. At the conclusion of the activity, the two paths were integrated into a final product in which the monument, printed in 3D or built with salvaged materials, is augmented by information found through multimedia resources. We collected and reviewed the teacher's activities and feedback.
