Digital STEAM. Teaching integrated science, arts and mathematics with digital devices course focuses on pedagogical use of tablets in STEAM lessons, both in-class, science museum and outdoors settings. Besides the pre-school, primary, secondary, vocational, adult, special needs teachers, we also welcome other users of tablets interested in the course’s focus on didactical use of all digital devices in class. Some of the main topics of the course cover: apps covering different content and activities to support learning, communication and self-assessment, best practice approaches and practical examples for using mobile devices in lessons and education, responsible and safe use of digital devices and new media, creating interactive materials for classroom use, designing, planning and writing sample units of work or lesson plans that deploy the digital devices and more.
The added value of the course is that the course offers app search/store possibilities, experience in the tablet/apps use exchange, innovation in methods and approaches while using the m-devices, and implementation of them into daily activities in teaching and learning. Additionally, the course ‘Digital STEAM: Integrated teaching of Mathematics, Science and Arts with digital tools’ offers participation in an experience exchange on EU level.

The course methodology aspires creating an output. Working individually or in groups on a concrete product to be used in your own school, such as composing a (new) school policy plan for internationalisation, setting up eTwinning projects or Erasmus KA2 projects with other participants present and writing the draft of such a 2- or 3-year project. Participants are given time to develop these outputs and the trainers coach and support them throughout the week, if necessary even long after courses have finished as a follow up.
