El pasado 31 de mayo Mariluz Guenaga, responsable del equipo Deusto LearningLab – Facultad de Ingeniería de la Universidad de Deusto, participó en la jornada STEAM organizada por la red municipal y foral de Promoción Infantil y Juvenil de Gipuzkoa, Gaztematika.

La jornada tuvo como objetivo presentar el enfoque STEAM, aclarar conceptos y dar a conocer ejemplos de cómo llevar la teoría a la práctica.

Mariluz presentó el proyecto InspiraSTEAM y mostró ejemplos prácticos de cómo trabajar las áreas STEAM desde una perspectiva de género. Los asistentes tuvieron la oportunidad de experimentar en primera persona cuestiones como la falta de referentes femeninos en ciencia y tecnología o los estereotipos asociados a estas profesiones.

Durante la jornada también se presentaron otras iniciativas relacionadas con las áreas STEAM: Espacio STEAM presentado por Esti León, Hirikilabs, Hiritarren Laborategia de la mano de Manex Izagirre y el proyecto educativo STEAM del museo Eureka! presentado por Larraitz Etxebarria.

This video is part of the OSOS Israel project. OSOS – Open Schools for Open Societies – encourages an open school approach. An open school opens up to the community and uses the school’s environment to enrich the learning experience of the students. It imports external ideas that challenge internal views and beliefs and uses these insights to innovate education.

The OSOS project aims to support 1,000 schools in 11 participating countries to become Open Schools.

Karmengo Ama School students have been playing and learning with the resources developed in the STEAM Decks project.

The most important feature of the platform for the students has been to be able to choose who to play against, to be able to follow other classmates in the social part of the platform and specially to be able to create their own decks. The students gave very interesting ideas on new topics to create decks on the platform. Soon some of these ideas will be available on the STEAM Decks platform.

PLATON Schools: implementation of interdisciplinary inquiry-based activities in Spain schools

Five schools in Spain have already implemented different PLATON interdisciplinary inquiry-based activities.

The Sagrado Corazón school in Salamanca, has carried out PLATON’s activities and methodology in the subjects of biology and geology, physics and chemistry and computer science, a complete interdisciplinary approach. They have implemented the activity on the extinction of dinosaurs in the fourth year of secondary education.

In the Montes Orientales school in Granada have carried out two PLATON activities. They have carried out the activity of photosynthesis with students of the first year of secondary education and the activity of nanotechnology in the first year of high school. You can see their fantastic work through the following padlet: https://padlet.com/biologiamencia/hi0yz5o8zzjc

The Colegio Maristes Champagnat in Badalona has developed the EMR and health activity in the subjects of biology and geology, and technology with students of the first year of secondary education, within the unity of the atmosphere.

In the Corazón de María school in Gijon, PLATON’s activities and methodology have been based on the subject of scientific culture in high school.  You can see in the following padlet the three activities that have worked: https://padlet.com/rafaelmonterobr/x88ymtpcsj7h

The Nuestra Señora del Carmen school in Portugalete have integrated the activity of exponentials in astronomy into the subjects of mathematics and biology and geology with students of fourth year of secondary education.

All of them has shared their experience with PLATON team, and some of the feedback that we have received from them is that they have noticed how their students have learned and corrected misconceptions with the PLATON activities, and they emphasize the interdisciplinary approach of the activities. On another note, the students have told that activities are entertaining and different to the practices they are used to do, and that they have learnt things they didn’t know and didn’t expect.

Thank you very much to all the schools, teachers and students that have get involved in PLATON project, we hope you continue developing the PLATON methodology in your schools.

If you are an interested teacher, school or student don’t hesitate to contact us, we will be very pleased to support you.

STEAM Decks: for primary and secondary school teachers

During the months of March and April, several meetings of professors were held at the University of Deusto to present the STEAM Decks project.
STEAM Decks is a European Project coordinated by the LearningLab team of the University of Deusto and with the collaboration of Fatima Educational Foundation, Bertha von Suttner Gymnasium, Scoala Ferdinand I, and Duchess France.
STEAM Decks provides a free access online platform where primary and secondary school students are able to develop declarative knowledge in a contextualized and meaningful way through a multiplayer and online card game.
During the presentation sessions of the tool the teachers were able to work with the online version of the platform and with the printed decks. Both modes of play, as well as the possibilities offered by the mobile app, have proved to be very interesting resources for teachers. The most valued feature of the application is that anyone can design their deck of cards and make those contents so difficult to memorize in their subject, work in a fun way.

Within the framework of the European project PLATON: Promoting innovative Learning Approaches for the Teaching Of Natural science, several open resources have been created and made available to the entire educational community. All the resources are on the PLATON website, http://platon-project.eu/, in the e-Agora section, and all of them are available in English, Greek, Portuguese and Spanish.

Among the resources that you can find there, is the 3D Interdisciplinary Map of Science Ideas, which allows to introduce an interdisciplinary approach in the science class. In addition, there are the interdisciplinary inquiry-based activities related to different science topics, perfect to work science through the PLATON methodology in the classroom.

There is also a series of Massive Open Online Courses, which will allow teachers to learn the PLATON methodology in a simple way and develop their teaching style by adding inquiry practices.

Within the PLATON project, the assessment of the students is of great value and for this purpose specific assessment materials have been developed adapted to the activities proposed in PLATON.

Don’t miss the opportunity to take a look at all the resources available on PLATON e-Agora to learn more about the PLATON methodology and start working it in the classroom.

The new STEAM Decks application is now available for Android in Google Play Store. Thanks to this app, you can play with other colleagues by comparing numerical properties of different subjects: the population rate of different cities, the extent of different countries, the altitude of several mountains, even the atomic number of the components of the periodic table.

In addition, if you want to create your own deck of cards on the subject that interests you most, you can do so from the STEAM Decks website.

  • Encourage third parties to support and join the initiative by organising STEM activities of their own
    and share information about them as part of the STEM Discovery Week campaign.
  • Publish on their web page information in support of the STEM Discovery Week campaign, hence facilitating an active exchange of information among projects, organisations and schools.

For more information on the registration steps that potential partners need to follow, please consult this document here.

Are you organising a STEM event around April 2018?

Include it on the map! Participants organising STEM activities in the course of April 2018, may also enter the STEM Discovery Week competitions. Visit the competitions’ section for more information here.
