Scientix Topics Networking Event:
stem goes digital
The STNS “STEM goes Digital: How can technology support STEM Teaching” was held online on 28th of September 2022.
Digital transformation has changed our society and economy and has an increasing impact on education as well as on our everyday life.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it clear that having an education and training system which is fit for the digital age is now essential. The pandemic has also demonstrated the urgent need for higher levels of digital capacity in education and training. It also amplified few existing challenges and inequalities between those who have access to digital technologies and those who do not. Moreover, education and training systems were faced with several challenges concerning the digital capacities of education and training institutions, teacher training and overall levels of digital skills and competences.
Nineteen participants with experience in the topic joined this Science Topics Networking Seminar (STNS), including the Ministries of Education from Croatia and Cyprus, representatives from DARTEF, Sanoma Italia, Wonderful Education, Public Libraries 2030, Educonsult and the European Commission DG Education, Youth, Sport and Culture, as well as project managers from BRAIINS and Science e-Robot, and researchers from Dublin City University, University of Athens, and University of Mostar (Scientix National Contact Point), together with teachers with experience in the topic. In this seminar, participants explored how technology support STEM teaching.
- Exploring how digital technologies can support STEM teaching.
- Reflecting on the lessons learned from the experiences of teachers, researchers, industry partners, ministries of education and other key stakeholders.
- Provide a platform for exchanging knowledge and build a community around the topic of STEM teaching using digital technologies.
- Agree on additional actions that could be taken to address STEM teaching in the physical classroom, online, and in hybrid settings.
The organisers collected ideas, comments and general conclusions agreed between participants during the workshop. The results of the discussion are published in a Scientix Observatory paper co-authored by all participants.
