The goal of this course is to offer educators the necessary skills to deliver STEM education in an attractive and engaging manner in class. The course will provide teachers with concrete ideas and resources in teaching programming and computational thinking skills. They will also receive training in learning methods such as Project Based method or Inquiry Based method in order to explore ways to motivate and encourage students. After the end of this course, they will have a better understanding of the concept and potential benefits of STEM education and they will have improved the skills and competences that are required to convey that knowledge to their students.
This course is targeted at ICT teachers (pre-school, primary, secondary, vocational, adult, special needs) that want to provide training into STEAM & robotics education and other teachers who would like to link their subject with technology.
To improve educators’ scientific and pedagogical background through the use of technology in the educational process.
BENEFITS FOR THE PARTICIPANTS: SKILLS AND COMPETENCES ACHIEVED
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
understand the important role of technology in education
improve their knowledge and skills in the field of STEAM & robotics
create interactive STEAM learning materials to be used into classroom
improve the quality of teaching, studying and learning processes through the use of technology
develop and integrate new strategies into the school´s curriculum
The methodology that is going to be used in order to introduce the participants into STEAM education will stimulate active participation and build a diverse and stimulating environment for reflecting, working and learning.
The methodology includes lectures, presentations, team-working, web resources, project-based working, and practical sessions (hands-on practice).
Participants will be given a hard copy of the material presented during the course.
