STEAM Education for a Reality Oriented and Fun Learning Environment - Berlin

Rating: 3/53 users

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art + Design and Math) is an educational framework that brings reality into the classroom by connecting different subjects together in a way that they will relate to both the real and business world and to each other.

STEAM is the second step of STEM education, in which one incorporates the artistic and design-related skills and thinking processes to student-learning process. STEAM education provides an opportunity to formally teach in a fun environment showing the relationships between subjects and real-life, therefore increasing sense of motivation, self efficacy and problem solving skills.

During the course teachers will explore STEAM-style exercises where they will be innovators / makers and work collaboratively in open workspaces, sharing ideas and intuitions with others, in an international stimulating environment.

They will be offered to share ideas for cross-disciplinary dialogue, inquiry, and problem solving issues they encounter at school that may be treated through a STEAM action.

The course will propose a series of hands-on activities to develop skills related intersections between these content areas, group discussions and design thinking practices to train teachers to be able to use Steam framework once back in their schools.

Guided city tours and 1 full day cultural excursion (usually on Saturday) will also be part of the programme.

It was a STEAM course in which the practical part should have an important weight and it was not so. Not a single minute of practice where you can launch a real STEAM project. EUROPASS left much to be desired in the organization of the course. On the good side, a group of teachers wanting to share their experiences that came from many different schools and ages. Very interesting reflections on creativity, multidisciplinary approach and inclusion of Art in projects.

3 good things 1) Reflections about creativity and its role on teaching 2) Rethinking the usual 3) The capacity of creating an engaging and friendly environment Some things could have been better: having more practical examples taken from reality, from school and teachers. The environment where a subject is explained must at least be related to the content of the course itself, it would be better to use labs instead of class, at least for some days

Although the teacher was excellent, neither the space, nor the resources nor the contents were consistent with what would be expected of a course on STEAM. As positive, the visit to the Futurium museum, an indispensable place for teachers who use STEAM methodology.
