With these courses, teachers will have the opportunity to bring their learning experience to the next level by mastering the integration of real-world STEM problems in their lessons with the ‘STEM is Everywhere! Rerun' MOOC and discovering how to develop and implement a STEM integrated lesson plan with the STE(A)M IT MOOCs.
The ‘STEM is Everywhere!' MOOC was organised for the first time in 2018 by Scientix and European Schoolnet Academy. Its big success motivated a decision to hold a rerun in September 2020 and create a fully Integrated STEM expertise for future participants by combining this course in the STEM MOOCs package with the ‘Integrated STEM Teaching' MOOCs of the STE(A)M IT project.
The ‘STEM is Everywhere!' MOOC will help primary and secondary school teachers, and teacher trainers from Europe and beyond, to identify STEM in everyday life and learn how to integrate real-world STEM problems to their lessons and practice. Participants of this MOOC will find numerous classroom activities and resources on how to use real-world problems in their STEM teaching.
The ‘Integrated STEM Teaching' MOOCs of the STE(A)M IT project and Scientix are offered as a perfect continuation of the Scientix MOOC. They allow teachers to deepen their previous knowledge and go from teaching isolated Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics classes, to a real integrated STEM teaching of these topics, not only among themselves but with all other disciplines.
The ‘Integrated STEM Teaching' course is offered in two versions; one for primary and one for secondary school teachers. Both of them will examine the opportunities offered by integrated STEM teaching and will provide many practical examples.
Teachers are welcome to join either course, or even better, both ‘STEM is Everywhere!' and ‘Integrated STEM Teaching' MOOCs in order to get their special certificate. Participants that already obtained a certificate from the STEM Is everywhere MOOC in 2018 are already eligible for the special certificate if they complete one of the Integrated STEM Teaching MOOCs.
