Let's meet at the IVOA Interop meeting 19-23 May 2008: Trieste, ITALY ( http://www.si.inaf.it/ivoa_interop_2008/ )

We have the room Vulcania 2 reserved for our WP5 meeting on Wednesday 21 from 14:30 to 16:00. The room has wi-fi and projector. If we will need more time, we will have to move to Vulcania 1 after 16:00, but, hey, it is the free afternoon....!

Here is an idea for the program:

  • Introduction and review of our program for WP5 (Massimo Ramella)
  • Requirements (Massimo Ramella)
  • Outreach Aladin (CDS)
  • Outreach VirGO+Stellarium (ESO)
  • Using Aladin and Stellarium (Giulia Iafrate)

This part does not need to be long. Other partners interested in addressing WP5 are invited to sign-up here. Following the presentations, we should start working together (in pairs/triplets/etc) on laptops at a more technical/practical level.

Note: someone of the project Le stelle vanno a scuola (Stars go to school) will also be present at our meeting.This project led by Paolo Santin of the Trieste Observatory is based on a remotely controlled telescope made available for online observations to schools with kids ages 14-18 ( http://radiosun.ts.astro.it/scuoleremote/index.htm ).

"Tage der Schulastronomie" in Jena (Germany), 25-27 June 2009

This is a conference for teachers in schools, organized by the departement of "Didactics of Astronomy" of the University of Jena. About 150 teachers will attend. I was invited to give a talk there about VOs and organize a small workshop, where the teachers can learn how to use VO-tools for their teachings.

If someone has comments or ideas, please tell me!

I meet Prof. Lotze from the departement of "Didactics of Astronomy" of the University of Jena on 5th Dec. 2008 and talked about WP5 and the use of VO-tools in school. He was very exicited and interested. I also gave him so info-material on EURO-VO and the use of VO-tools in school, which he presented at the "Südthüringer Tag der Astronomie" - a small event for teachers and the interested public.
