HST2005


THE TASK

  • Review educational area in the CERN webpage and make suggestions

  • What to keep

  • What to discard

  • What to change

  • How to organize it


THE PROCESS

  • Classify resources according to selected criteria.

  • 5 best ones, 5 worst ones and reasons

  • Analyze structure and navigation

  • Collect problems found

  • What is missing


CRITERIA

  • Who are the resources suitable for?

    teachers, students or classroom?

  • What age group are they suitable for?

  • What subject do they belong to?

    Relevancy in the curriculum was considered not a suitable criteria as different countries have different curricula.


BEST ONES

  • Bubble chambers

  • Antimatter

  • Using Feynman Diagrams to illustrate particle interactions

  • The Powers of Tens

  • The LHC Game

  • The Mistery of Antimatter


NOT THAT GOOD

  • Playing with Quarks

  • Technology Transfer

  • Small Effects in the classroom

  • About the Standard Model

  • The Toolkit to construct Feynman Diagrams

  • The Universe Game


PROBLEMS FOUND

  • Very difficult navigation

  • Confusing structure: not obvious

  • Language limitations

  • Search engine does not work

  • Same resources under different names

  • Movies are too long


WHAT IS MISSING

  • Resources translated into a number of languages.

  • More computer simulations

  • CERN for Kids section at their level

  • Famous names at CERN section

  • Navigational tree

  • Educational Resources Search engine

  • Fields such as Brief summary or Keywords to classify and search for resources.


THE OUTCOME

  • List of recommendations

  • Proposal of new structure for the page

  • Proposal of new games


LIST OF RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Restructure the main page of Education at CERN.

  • Creation of a Library for Teachers with articles, documents, live lectures, long movies, photos and posters.

  • Future live webcasts should be broken down into 15 min slots.


PROPOSAL OFSTRUCTURE


VISITS TO CERN


Educational Resources


Teachers


Particle Physics


NEW GAMES

  • ILLUSTRATED PLAYING CARDS

  • BUILDING THE LHC


MICROCOSM SHOP

  • Why a shop?

  • The actual shop.


Recommendations for the Shop

  • More attractive and bigger posters

  • More postcards, more with tracks, more beautiful

  • More games and gadgets

  • Kits for experiments such as Cloud Chamber, Accelerators…

  • Books and materials for Kids

  • More books on display in several languages and with a little presentation of the content.

  • Seating area to look at them

  • A little summary of each DVD and a DVD station to watch them.

  • A little guide of microcosm exhibition

  • A shop on line
