On the evening of February 28, 2023, the SSI-L Project Cooperation Seminar at Hangzhou Baochuta Experimental School was held online via Tencent Meetings. Lin Jing, head of the SSI-L Project Team and director of the Science Development Department of the Collaborative Innovation Center of Assessment for Basic Education Quality, and Peng Menghua, head of the Disciplinary Guidance Expert Team of the SSI-L Project and a Special-Rank Teacher of the Physics Department of the Second Affiliated Middle School of Beijing Normal University, attended the meeting. Sha Liguo, principal of Hangzhou Baochuta Experimental School, Yu Yuan, the school’s SSI-L project leader, and members of the project team presented and discussed the issue design of the school’s project.
Yu Yuan introduced the issue design of “disposable chopsticks” that the team plans to carry out, as well as the design and development of the issue — “global warming” that has been carried out. Lin Jing gave guidance on the top-level design and curriculum content. Professor Lin pointed out that the two projects have important development value, but it needs further consideration of the star map design and specific activity objectives. Class activities need to highlight the value of promoting students’ scientific thinking and practical development.
Peng Menghua pointed out that the issue of disposable chopsticks is closely related to students’ daily life, and covers multiple disciplines, which is of high development value. Peng gave specific guidance and suggestions on relevant disciplinary knowledge, and emphasized the need to consider the relevance between motivating questions and students’ life.
This seminar discussed the issue design in detail, and pointed out the direction for improving the subsequent issue and teaching practice. It is believed that after this discussion, Baochuta Experimental School’s SSI-L project will achieve better outcomes.
