STEAM: Investigating best practices from successful STEAMing project
STEAM EDUCATION is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics
as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. STEAM teaching and learning involves teachers and
students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and
work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!
The STEAMing courses aim to disseminate the learning and good practices from the STEAMing project. We will provide a
theoretical context for the promotion of STEAM teaching and learning approaches in the classroom. Participants will be invited
to take on the role of young learners, but also observe activities from the teachers’ point of view through reflection and discussion. STEAM encourages us to open the doors to the real world and use
real practices of wonder, critique, inquiry and innovation in our teaching and learning.
The main purpose of the course is to help teachers to understand the importance of STEAM education and improve STEAM teaching and learning in their classrooms and schools. Participants will become
familiar with the impact they can have on children through the organisation of active engagement in STEAM activities in a fun and innovative, yet highly educational manner. They will learn how to boost children’s imagination and natural gift of
questioning, by implementing scientific ways of thinking and science methodology in their work and through application of problem-solving skills.
