Did you miss the STE(A)M IT 3rd Co-Creation Workshop, in collaboration with Scientix, as part of its Ministries of Education STEM representative Working Group meetings programme? Here is what you need to know about the event to stay up to date!
Organized on the 25th of June 2021, the event gathered 50 participants, including industry representatives (Texas Instruments, Amgen Foundation), Ministries of Education (from Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Turkey), experts in STEM Education, researchers and teachers.
Presented with the first draft of the STE(A)M Integrated framework of the STE(A)M IT project, participants discussed and provided feedback and contextual insights, based on their expertise and experience in integrated STEM education, on the paths to STEAM integration, on the contextualisation of STEM careers through the STE(A)M IT Career Advisors Network and STEM Jobs Profiles Repository, and more specifically:
- The roadmap to the integrated STE(A)M Framework (including the following steps: state of play, co-creation workshops, class implementations of exemplary learning scenarios created by 11 pilot teachers and focus groups), a foundation for the first draft of evidence-based, practical, easy-to-use, and modular integrated STE(A)M Framework, presented by Evita Tasiopoulou, Project and Pedagogical Manager at European Schoolnet;
- The desk research (State of Play) and SWOT analysis that paved the path for the first draft of the Framework, by Nikoletta Xenofontos from the University of Cyprus;
- The implementation of Integrated STEAM Teaching in primary and secondary classrooms, with the STE(A)M IT leading teachers;
- The link between integrated STEM education and the contextualization of STEM careers, and the necessity for guidance and tools such as the STE(A)M IT network of career advisers and repository of STEM jobs profiles;
- School, policy and industry recommendations for a better approach to integrated STEM education.
Good practices of integrated STEM teaching were also introduced by representatives of 3 guest projects – STEMonEdu, CHOICE and In2STEAM serving as a source of inspiration for further Framework development.
