“How to write your CV” and “Letter of intent”
ITALIN PLAN DIGITAL SCHOOL
On 18th-19th-20th January 2018 two students from ITIS E. Mattei attended a national meeting about digital schools in Bologna. It was a three day time of conferences about new technologies at school.
While the teachers were attending the conference the students from every part of Italy were working on a “Model project”. It is a simulation of the G7 in English. They had previously attended this kind of workshop in Catania (May 2017) and Latina (November 2017). The students act the role of delegates and use their knowledge of international politics to discuss many interesting topics.
The two students were members of two different commissions: one about the problem of clean water and its availability, the other about women rights.
The competition was won by commission number 1 (water commission) and our student won a trip to Dubai next March to attend a World conference about technology.
November 25th 2017 the students of Fermi-Mattei Isernia (ITIS address) attended the electronics fair in the city of Pescara. The fair takes place every year in a different Italian city, but our students never miss it.
In this fair there are stalls selling electro-thecnical and electronic objects. But what makes it attractive and interesting for them is that during the fair there is also an electronic race where projects about the world of electronics are presented divided into different categories and the best three ones win a prize.
This year our students have presented some projects and one of these has obtained the third place. The project was about a device that looks for electric wires into walls.
It was a beautiful day because they learned many things and had lot of fun.
COOPERATION WITH THE BLUMENBECKER COMPANY
On November 31 this year our school was visited by representatives of the “Blumenbecker” company with an invitation to cooperate. The company operates in the field of automation of machines and devices, and especially specializes in the production, assembly and servicing of cabinets, desktops and control sets as well as the creation of innovative robotic solutions from scratch. Employees of “Blumenbecker” based in Katowice Ligota presented an offer of apprenticeships and internships in their factory. The meeting was attended by students of technical school classes with vocational profiles as IT, locksmiths and electricians.
WORLD ENTREPRENEURSHIP WEEK
This year on November 13-17, ZST nr 1 in Chorzów celebrated the World Entrepreneurship Week. Our students and teachers were participating in the workshops on this subject which were carried out by Ms. Małgorzata Kiełek from the Youth Career Center in Katowice. During the classes, the students got acquainted with the characteristics of enterprising people and could try out in practice whether they have this set of features themselves. It was a very self-knowing and fruitful day.
The students and teachers of ZST nr1 in Chorzów took part in the very interesting lecture at the Silesian University of Technology connected with the natural-language processing (NLP). NLP is a field of computer science, artificial intelligence concerned with the interactions between computers and human (natural) languages, and, in particular, concerned with programming computers to fruitfully process large natural language data.
Challenges in natural-language processing frequently involve speech recognition, natural-language understanding, and natural-language generation.
For the students who want to be IT specialists in the future it was a very thought-provoking meeting.
MEETINGS WITH POLICE – LEGAL RULES AND SCOPE OF RESPONSIBILITIES
In January 2018, a series of trainings for the first and second grade students took place in the Zespół Szkół Technicznych nr 1 in Chorzów. During the meetings with the police officers, the youth learned the legal bases and the scope of responsibilities that concern them as juveniles. The consequences of having even the smallest amount of drugs in Poland or committing offenses via the Internet were also discussed. During the discussion, such concepts as robbery and theft were explained. Young people were very involved in the discussion with the police. In the near future further meetings are planned, during which attention will be paid to the problem of legal highs, cyberbullying and other threats to young people.
MUSEUM OF COMPUTER AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN KATOWICE – ACTIVITIES PROMOTING SCIENCE On the 10 October 2017 the students of the ZST nr1 in Chorzów, under the supervision of a math’s teacher, Ewa Szromek, participated in activities promoting science in the Museum of History of Computers and Computer Science in Katowice (there is only one such a museum in Poland).
As part of the classes, we participated in a lecture on the history of computer science and computers ranging from the protoplast of the abacus – abacus, which was created approx. 5,000 years ago, up to modern devices. Then, we visited the museum, which gathers over 550 exhibits from the last 40 years of computers. For the youth, it was a lesson in the history and evolution of equipment that has become a reality in our daily lives.
Students were surprised by the fact that for the first time they saw antique computers with the label “Made in Poland”, they became acquainted with the history of Polish IT, which is presented on 70 exhibits with special consideration of native producers such as “MERA – ELZAB” from Zabrze (currently the Company Akcyjna) and Zakłady ELWRO from Wrocław (unfortunately no longer existing). They could “touch” bits and bytes and find out that the smartphone, or actually its processor, was once a huge wardrobe, for which transport was necessary to work several people and the delivery truck and it could not be put in his pocket.
On 8-bit computers, with the help of educational programs from the British Isles, you can solve mathematical equations, examine the course of function variability, draw mathematical charts, etc. This can all be done on computers and software from 1986.
Youth could also try their hand at old computer games installed on equipment from that time and feel like their parents.
The students were very active and interested in the classes, they are educated in the profession of IT technician, so it is good to learn something about the beginnings of computer science, which in the future can be their source of livelihood.
Last week (November 6-10) was a Mathematics Week at our school, ZST nr1 in Chorzów. Every day competitions and mathematics classes took place, in which students actively participated in developing their mathematical interests. There was also a fair of mathematical sweets baked by students.
As a summary of these activities there was a meeting in the school hall, where the Director handed the diplomas to the winners of the competitions. Then, students of the IVc class Monika Podgórska and Joanna Smajdor presented a presentation of math and mathematics puzzles prepared under the supervision of a math teacher Mrs. Ewa Szromek. At the end everyone listened to the lecture delivered by a scientific employee of the Silesian University of Technology, Ms. Joanna Dutka.
We experienced this week under the sign of the Queen of Sciences, we could see that mathematics is not as scary as it looks, and sometimes it is not only very interesting, but also funny. Maybe it will encourage many students to look for new ways to overcome mathematical problems.
On April 19th our students of 3th ,4th ,and 5th years participated to a lecture promoted by the University of Turin about the business incubator. The activity was planned within the activities of alternating trainings proposed by our school and linked to the Erasmus theme good planning better future. Le lecture was divided into two parts. The first part was about the main steps to be done to start a new business: from the business idea to the development of the business plan and to the creation of the business. The second part was about the best ways to look for a job: how to create a good CV, how to promote your competences on Linkedin and how to afford a job interview or an application for a job.
CODING TIME WITH MINECRAFT
In our school on 6.XII.2018, within the Week of the IT Education, the “Coding time with Minecraft” was organized. The students of classes 2b, 3b, 3c, 4b took part in the event. The aim of the initiative was to introduce students the computer science in the form of puzzles with characters from their games and activities, whose solution consists in arranging programs from ready-made blocks, and thus solving algorithmic / programming problems in the Minecraft game. The products were in forms of the solved algorithmic problems.
COOPERATION WITH UNIVERSITIES
Every partner school has started the cooperation with the universities. There are classes, open days, seminars, lectures, etc.

The aim of the periodically organized in April in ZST No. 1 in Chorzów, Entrepreneurship Day is to prepare students to undertake individual and team work in various sectors of the Polish economy.
DAY OF UNITED EUROPE
Every spartners’ school celebrated the day of Europe.
European Day of Languages
Be creative! Speak the world languages! – that is, we are celebrating the European Day of Languages.
From September 26, at the Technical School Complex No. 1 in Chorzów, we celebrated the European Day of Languages. It was interactive, multimedia and fun. Students of first and second grades made wall leaflets and interesting multimedia presentations on developing key competences on a foreign language. Each class took part in language quizzes prepared in the Kahoot program by foreign language teachers. Students showed their linguistic and cultural knowledge. The winners, in addition to their satisfaction, could show that the languages of the world and the culture of other nationalities are not terrible for them, and the use of internet applications is part of the reality surrounding them.
The great challenge and interesting experience was to conduct language workshops that develop key pupils’ skills. Good cooperation in the group, positive climate in the group or the choice of a group leader undoubtedly contributed to the development of the social competences of the workshop participants. Logical thinking, analyzing, observing skills, interpreting all this appeared during the performance of workshop tasks: word spreader creating the subject of workshops in both German and English, advertising of RTV equipment from the eighties and nineties, eg. Unitra tape recorder or journey into the world of films thanks to the mysterious “Reisekoffer” suitcase, which turned participants into characters from Harry Poterra, Pirates of the Caribbean, King Arthur or Winnetou.
All groups performed well and met the requirements of the leaders. Creativity, commitment, the ability to communicate verbally and non-verbal and most importantly, good cooperation and the use of English, German and native English accompanied the entire workshop for 45 minutes. And as you can see, the interesting methods of work have not failed, with a smile on their faces and a new approach to the theme of celebrating the European Day of Languages, we have completed this parade marathon of developing key competences.
Certainly for the next workshops from the cycle “Be creative! Speak languages in the world! “We will have to wait, but we can develop key competences on every lesson regardless of the size of the group or the topic of the class. Because we shape in our students what is most important – social skills, communication skills, mathematics, cultural awareness, entrepreneurship, the use of IT and the use of effective learning techniques and strategies.

December the 12th 2017.
In order to promote good practices in our students and make them aware of the many job opportunities our territory offers, our school organized a visit to “Marina Colonna”, an Italian firm specialized in the production of extra virgin oil, since our region is rich in olive plants and in the oil production.
Our students could see the garden, where the olive plants are situated, and the laboratory, where olives are transformed in extra virgin olive oil. The firm produces also other types of products olive-based such as pate, olive cream and so on. The firm also arranged a taste of its products (which was very appreciated by our students of course).
The aim of the visit was to make them aware of the fact that even a little region as ours can offer some job opportunities if you are able to take advantage of what its territory can give you and if you are brave enough to bet on its strong points such as food, culture, tourism, etc.
XV MATHS COMPETITION
Two students of our school, under the supervision of Mrs. Ewa Szromek, ZST nr1 in Chorzów, prepared the presentation “Prime numbers and cryptology” at the 15th Chorzowski Mathematical Competition with the MATPROJEKT 2018 Project Method, which took place on 17 April 2018 at the Academic Secondary School No. 2 in Chorzów.

Objectives: preparation for competitions and Olympiads, editing of the “Orion” science magazine, participation in extracurricular activities such contests, exhibitions, etc.
GERMAN LANGUAGE AT OUR SCHOOL
What are key competences? How can you become an “ideal employee”? What am I great in? How to deal with stressful situations? What is advertising? How to find a “good” job? – the question is double and triple, and all this in additional German language classes. IN ZST nr1 in Chorzów our students have the opportunity to develop language skills not only in obligatory classes in German, but also in additional classes. Students learn professional terminology covering issues in computer science, refrigeration and air conditioning or advertising organization useful in future professional work and acquire the skills to use and create texts related to their profession. They work to a large extent on authentic materials, in pairs, groups, cooperating with each other. They become employees of companies or run a business, are directors, managers and perform work on basic technical devices, describing it in German.
And although the basics are not easy, they are doing great. They plan, organize, evaluate their own skills, get involved and strive to set a goal – to acquire language knowledge and communication skills in a foreign language using the industry language.

Over one hundred and fifty exhibition stands were organized, dozens of lectures, workshops and meetings with interesting people from the world of science (and not only), taking place in the areas of knowledge in the multifunctional hall, on the main stage, in auditoriums and lecture halls.
The students took part in lectures and workshops, which presented achievements in the field of many fields. It was a great experience for them that science is not only a theory, but the possibility of its practical application. Perhaps it will turn out that those who only watched the show today will “swallow the bug” and in the future they will explore the secrets of science.
Activity of socio-professional counseling and promotion of educational offer for 11th and 12th grade students. It took place on 7 March 2018 in the high school amphitheater and was supported by University Associate Professor Muntean Camelia and Mrs. Tutulescu Felicia, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Horticulture
VISITING THE SENATE
On 17th January 2018 the second year classes of I.T.I.S E.MATTEI went to Rome to visit the Italian Senate. We went to Rome by train. We arrived in Roma Termini and then we went on foot to the library of the Senate, and attended a study on the structure of the Senate and on the stenographers.
To write an account of what happens in the sessions of work they use a machine called Michela’s pianola from the name of its inventor, which was patented at exclusive use of the Senate about 200 years ago. After this meeting we went to Palazzo Madama where a senate clerk welcomed us.
The name of the palace comes from Margherita D ‘Austria who married very young with Alessandro De Medici. Alessandro died 7 months after his marriage so, his wife, inherited the palace. There was a transfer of the palazzo Madama from the Medici family to the church and to the papal posts. The hemicycle where the sessions are held, was part of the papal posts. In this hall there are 315 senators plus those called “for life”, it means they are senators till death.
Each station is nominative and consists of a desk to vote engraved in the wood. After that we went to visit the Vatican. Then we went to Piazza Navona to refresh ourselves, and finally we visited Piazza di Spagna to take the subway and come back to the station to take the train.
Our school organises the visit of the senate every year for two reasons: first of all it is part of the subject “Law” studied at school, and second to make students sensitive to the topic of politics as an important part of our everyday life.
WELCOME TO AUTOMATATION
Our students are involved in a competition entlited “Welcome to Automatation” promoted by the Chamber of Commerce Italo-German. The competition is addressed to the Italian students of the Secondary Schools where the subjects of Mechanics, Automatation, electronics and Information Technology are studied.
The main aim of the project is to produce an object able to move itself and able to perform some simple tasks as push and pull objects, and so on. It has to have a mechanical structure made of 100% recycled material, and an electronical part using programmable controller devices. Moreover it has to have an utility in society for example for the environment safeguard, the safety on the place of work and so on.
The competition is composed by two phases: in the first one 10 projects will be chosen according to the idea at the base of the project. These projects will achieve the second phase, where three of them will win.
Our project has won the first phase and the next phase will be in Naples 19/21 March 2018. Three students will show the project: Ucci Manuel, Mazzarella Emilio, Bertone Gabriele IV B IT IS.
