Parallel sessions IV

20. Remote and digital

20.1) Remote experiments about bioclimatic architecture (T31), Anthoula Maidou

Abstract: Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) has become a very important issue recently, as it encourages students to understand and assess their own values and those of the society in which they live, in a sustainable context. The presentation will showcase a distance learning education project designed by the e‐science group of the Physics Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, with the aim of introducing secondary school students to zero-energy houses and bioclimatic architecture solutions.

20.2 Science learning: the analogue versus the digital (T42), Sai Pathmanathan

Abstract: The classroom of today is very different from that of thirty years ago; whiteboards, tablet computers, digital gaming devices and YouTube can often be found in most classrooms around the world, whether primary or secondary. Consequently, the presentation will explore the use of analogue and digital in science education (both formal and informal science educational settings) and ask whether the real question should be: how do we strike the right balance between the two?
