Technology Enhanced Activities for Learning Science for Children in Hospital (TEACH)

  1. 1. Technology Enhanced Activities for Learning Science for Children in Hospital (TEACH): Building a Roadmap to teach Science to chronically ill children through using technology Funded by Consell Social de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and from the Spanish Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia DMW_24 May 2011
  2. 2. Project Overview <ul><li>Problem </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Children chronic illness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Miss schooling </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Difficult to catch up Maths and Science </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Action </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Roadmap with four year plan to Spanish Government on how to harness technology to teach Science to these children who are often isolated through their illness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Survey (adapted Delphi Method) with medical staff, teachers, education and administrators and academics </li></ul></ul>DMW_24 May 2011
