Innovative Teaching and Learning Pathways for Responsible Use of Resources Focusing on the ESEE Region †
2. Needs and Impact
3. Project Objective and Scope
4.1. Target Groups
- 10–13 and 14–19-years-old students:
- School Teachers:
4.2. Learning Pathway
- Why do we need mineral raw materials?
- How does mining work nowadays?
- Recall the principles of circular economy
- Explain the importance of raw materials in everyday life
- Repeat how mining is done today and, in the future
- Step 1- Time & Activity:
- What is the name of this machine?
- Where can you find this machine?
- What does this machine do?
- What does that have to do with us?
- Step 2–Time& Activity:
- Task A: Draw a picture about mining (e.g., MIRO board or on the paper provided) Explanation: The students might have an outdated image of mining in their heads or cannot imagine anything at all. Therefore, this task gives them the chance to visualize what they know about mining.
- Task B: Each group defines three key words about mining and shares them with the groups or in the chat. The students also have to explain their choice for the selected words. The teacher will collect all the words and discuss them with the students. He or she could also create a word cloud with the given words.
- Task C: Mining countries on the world map. In the PowerPoint slides there is a blank world map, where the students have the task to search the internet for mining sites around the world. The countries found should then be coloured in on the map. The task can be adapted by asking them to locate e.g., the largest gold, copper or iron mine in the world.
- Task D: Mobile phone
- How many mobile phones does your family have?
- What do you do with your old ones?
- Why do you think it is necessary to recycle your old mobile phone?
- Step 3–Time& Activity
