Global Online Science Labs for Inquiry Learning at School
The course is organized in the context of the project "Go-Lab: Global Online Science Labs for Inquiry Learning at School". Its main objective is to introduce to teachers the use of online virtual experimentations and remote laboratories as well as inquiry-based science teaching techniques in order to help them develop, improve and enhance their teaching skills and practices. These tools and techniques will facilitate them in engaging their students into science topics, in order to acquire scientific inquiry skills and experience the culture of doing science, under motivating circumstances, by undertaking active, guided, experimentation, carried out in renown scientific facilities and research centers. The course will include presentations followed by practical sessions and workshops focusing on:
. Introduction to the concepts and skills of learning-design, inquiry processes and scaffolding
. Introduction to preparing, uploading and sharing digital learning resources and scenarios
. Presentation of inquiry-based learning activities for use in the science classroom
. Familiarization with on-line labs portals and educational digital repositories
. Presentation of popular social tools and science outreach websites
. Hands-on sessions working on on-line labs and resources related to science.
The course will also strengthen its social cohesive and pan-European dimension by inviting participants to be part of a community of practice that will allow them to exchange and share ideas, experiences, concerns and educational resources with fellow teachers across Europe and introduce them to on-line learning repositories, portals and educational metadata.
The repertoire of online labs, experimentations and best practices, and the educational tools that will be presented in combination with the hands-on activities will facilitate the participants in learning how to deploy and integrate them in their school environment and everyday science teaching practice and also how to contribute their own work into educational repositories and share it within a European community of practice.
