Description

STEAM is the acronym that stands for five academic disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. Rather than teach each area separately, STEAM education integrates these disciplines for use in real-life applications. The course focuses on enriching STEAM secondary education curriculum through innovative activities for students, expanding available learning and teaching resources as well as enriching educator’s skills on engaging and motivating their students. This course is a kind of teacher training course which aims to support school staff with a new and innovative teaching approach methodologies proved and wide accepted by education community. Our flexible and collaborative courses are created by leading experts and experienced educators. Whether you are newly qualified, an experienced teacher or a STEAM Ambassador, we’ll help you engage, inspire and progress the learning of your pupils and students. We’ll support you to reflect on your practice and take what you learn back into the classroom. At the end of the project, Participants receives “An INNOTOMIA STEAM Training Certificate” that verifies the development of new pedagogical and didactical approaches based on educational technologies towards STEAM in education.

Approach

The course will combine theory input and discussion with analysis of practical cases with the purpose of finding out different possible solutions. The methodology used is mainly content-based language instruction (communication through specific content), text discussion, oral presentation and discussion, role-playing, self- and meta-reflection, debating and group interaction will be the strategies more frequently used. In practice, we use: technical study visits to local private and public institutions, meetings with local professionals to exchange good practices, job shadowing experiences, workshops to introduce new .
