Teaching STEM with digital tools
The goal of this course is to offer educators 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.
