1.      General context

As written in “National Guidelines for long life guidance”, note number 4232 of 19/02/2014, the guidance is not only the instrument to manage the transition between school, education and work, but it has also a long life value in the life of every person ensuring their development and support in the moments of choice and decision with the purpose of promoting their active occupation, economic increasing and  social inclusion.

Therefore the guidance is considered as “a combination of activities which enables citizens of all ages, in all  moments of their life, to identify their own abilities, competences, interests; to pass  conscious resolutions according to education, training and job…”

The school has a central role in the guidance processes and it must achieve a training/general guidance and an accompanying and counselling guidance.

2.      Specific context

Counseling is the first step in the choice and in planning student’s own personal, educational and professional path. The choice of a professional career is one of the most important decision to be taken by everybody. Therefore, it is necessary to have a tool which can give the students the possibility to know better the features of different kind of jobs  following the trends of labour market, a tool which can accompany them in this path, according to their preferences and ambitions.

The software called “Sorprendo” is a new technology for  vocational guidance. The guidance software allows a process of analysis of one's own preferences and abilities and suggests in real time a list of professions compatible with the interests of the person and related skills to be improved and / or developed to achieve the identified professional objective.

It is an innovative technological operating system, designed to help young people to “ choose“ their future. Thanks to self-assessment tools about their interests, skills and a database with more than 450 career paths, this software let people identify suitable goals and jobs. Users are asked to answer to many answers about their attitudes, interests and skills.

Each career starts out as a suitable match. Each stage of process either leaves career as +suitable or demotes it.

1.       General context

The Vocational Schools are inserted in the typology of schools that allow to enter directly into the world of work, mainly based on laboratory activities. This idea doesn’t often show the creative aspect which a professional path can also have, making the student's approach passive. Moreover, during the education path, their attention is mainly focused on professional activities and standardized skills.

So it is difficult to stimulate the creative aspect of professional profiles. We have to consider the following issues:
- Manual work is also an activity of the intellect.
- The worker can be an innovator and creator of development.
- The project offers a possibility of innovation to the territory.

1.      General context

The school counselling is particularly important, both in the transition from one type of school to another one and in the transition from school to work. In the counselling activity in order  to choose the school after lower secondary school, it is necessary to give students  advice, helps, suggestions, information in order to succeed in the school path and to avoid disadvantage situations and  failure which can lead them to drop out of school.

Parents have a decisive role in the choice because they usually are the real counsellors of their own children. 

In this way, our school carries out a counselling activity called “entry activity” addressed to students of lower secondary school. This activity, called Open Days, takes place during the first months of the school year (between November and January) until the final date in which the enrollments are closed.

2.      Specific context

Open Days, represent an opportunity to allow the participation of the parents to the counselling activities, when they are on holiday. The meeting between parents and teachers is a chance to create a bridge useful not only to  make their children take a decision on their future, but also to  increase the school visibility. The goal is also to  give an image of a collaborative and open school.

1.       General context

The pupil who attends the Middle School in Italy does not usually have the opportunity to practice technical workshop activities that allow to identify attitudes and interests with regard to technical professions. During the school orientation, teachers tend to associate each student because of a precise inclination  to a single subject and not to skills and attitudes to manual activities related to the world of work. This limits the pupils’ possibility of choice and tends to orientate them towards a classical or scientific high school. So, the ability to highlight the attitudes and preferences of pupils lacks both in middle schools and in families.

2.       Specific contest

-          To spread the educational curriculum of the various courses of our school showing the laboratory activities the student will attend;
To acquire knowledge of the different competences through the training courses offered by our school;
To show the possibilities offered by new tools and materials for the creation of new professional figures.

3.       The purpose of the activity

General objective:
The aim is to promote the "culture” of manual work and of technical features linked to it.

Specific object:
- To improve the quality of the educational orientation in order to increase the enrollments of students who have shown interest towards the technical / practical subjects during the activities of the travelling labs.
- To provide new tools, to teachers responsible for the outgoing orientation, in order to find out students' attitudes. These tools are based on activities which are different from what traditional school programs propose.
- To give more students the opportunity to deal with manual activities in order to recognize their own attitudes in a situation unlikely offered to young people today.

4.       Target group:


5.       The implementation team

The team in each laboratory is made up of a teacher of technical subject, a Middle School teacher and some students attending the professional courses. The coordinating activity between schools is carried out by the counselor teacher.

6.       Implementation period

The laboratory activities are carried out in November and December during the school time

7.       Preparation of activity

The counselor teacher contacts the teachers of the middle class schools that want to participate in the project and plan a calendar with those teachers to carry out the workshops during the curricular hours. They try to insert the activities in the class schedules. The  teacher of vocational subjects prepares materials and tools and gives technical information about the realization of the activity. The activities are prepared and tested together with the students attending the vocational course who will take part in the travelling labs.

8.       Definition of activity

Every course of the school proposes a specific laboratory: The Electric Electronic course, for example, proposes the creation of a simple microcontroller electronic device with sensors and actuators. The technical laboratory becomes a gym that teaches to "think with hands" using computers and objects of the real world: an educational method to bring the students to study STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) in a practical way, and playing.

The Audiovisual course proposes the creation of simple photographic productions with the use of software for image processing and editing of video files done by students in the lab. In this way the youngsters find out the communicative potentialities of audiovisual media.

The labs start with the presentation of the activity and the tools made by the professional teachers and then, during the practical phase the students of our school are involved as tutors. This practice allows the implementation of a peer-to-peer teaching that allows a rapid exchange of information between peers about the activities proposed by our school.

The two hours laboratories always aim at the realization of an object or of a complete product (for example the creation of a smart traffic-light or a short video clip).

Then the students who take part in these labs are encouraged to visit the school during the “Open days”.

Sponsor: school resources.

11.   Expected results

The students involved in travelling labs have the possibility to see the real activities carried out in the different courses of the school. In this way the quality of orientation is improved because the student who take part in the lab can do a choice, aware of an education path according to his own interests.

12.   Sustainability

The project „Travelling labs” is carried out by the counselor team using resources and tools generally employed in curricular activities. The teachers involved in the project plan dates and materials at the beginning of the year.

Nell’ambito del progetto ERASMUS+ “TECHnical partNership towards Innovation and Cooperation for VET “ che vede l’IPSIA L. Santarella impegnato con partner rumeni e tedeschi, si è svolto giovedì 20 dicembre 2018 un WORKSHOP tra docenti e studenti delle sedi baresi dell’Istituto con i rappresentanti della ONG ASHOKA sul tema  “CRESCERE INNOVATORI PUGLIA: UN’ALTRA STORIA”.

Il dott. Paolo Stufano di ASHOKA ha introdotto la mission della ONG, presente in oltre 70 Paesi del mondo e di recente approdata anche in Puglia.

ASHOKA è la più grande rete internazionale di imprenditori sociali innovativi; lavorando con loro e con alleati di tutti i settori, ASHOKA crea un mondo in cui ognuno si percepisce come agente del cambiamento, per favorire soluzioni sistemiche alle principali problematiche sociali.

 Il workshop si è poi incentrato in specifico sul concorso Crescere Innovatori Puglia: Un’Altra Storia, promosso da ASHOKA e che vede numerosi under 20 pugliesi impegnati a riflettere sul problema dell’emigrazione dalla Puglia e ad elaborare proposte concrete per contrastare questo fenomeno.

Le due sessioni di lavoro del Workshop, svoltesi presso le sedi di via Di Vagno e di via Rocca, hanno stimolato i ragazzi a soffermarsi sui problemi connessi al vivere in Puglia, al presente e con le prospettive del futuro, a partire dai problemi che vedono ogni giorno e che li spingono a dire “io qui non ci resto”. Si è passati poi a considerare le situazioni e comportamenti negativi che ogni ragazzo riconosce nella propria vita di tutti i giorni: per strada, allo stadio, con gli amici, nei locali frequentati, per giungere alla formulazione di una proposta in grado di produrre azioni efficaci contro il processo di spopolamento che coinvolge attualmente la Puglia.

Il concorso prevede, dopo la selezione delle 30 idee più innovative, che i giovani abbiano l’occasione unica di incontrarsi per sviluppare le competenze utili a concretizzare le loro idee in risposta al problema. Il workshop si articolerà in un primo momento di formazione, seguito da attività creative funzionali a creare spirito di comunità e responsabilità.

Eventuali stanziamenti di risorse economiche per avviare concretamente i progetti saranno sottoposti all’approvazione da parte di una giuria coordinata di Ashoka.

I progetti selezionati avranno visibilità pubblica durante l’evento dedicato alla presentazione delle idee e contribuiranno al dialogo con le istituzioni in merito al ruolo dei giovani pugliesi nella definizione del futuro della regione.  Nei mesi successivi sarà assegnato un mentor ad ogni progetto vincitore del budget col fine di portare avanti fattivamente il progetto.

The workshop took place in the  two sites of the school (Di Vagno and Rocca) where the students have analyzed the problems linked to life inAapulia today and to future perspectives which could  bring them elsewhere.
So, the students have analyzed the negative social behaviours  (at the stadium, among friends, in public spaces, etc.) in order to find  effective suggestions   preventing the depopulation process in Apulia region.
After a skimmed  selection of 30 innovative ideas, the competition will give the students the possibility to meet and talk about how to put into practice their projects.
