  16. 16. Teachers 'views on quality of educational resources existing in Scientix repository| Gina Mihai 20/03/2015| Florence International Conference New Perspective in Science Education, Edition 4 16 Evaluation and rating of educational resources Teachers’ views on the quality of resources Resources in languages they don’t speak Scientix has a Translation on Demand service, and teachers can request one of the available languages (if CC allows) Project Reports don’t seem addressed to teachers On the other hand, Teachers agree they prefer written reports instead of video, to search fast the content they are interested and avoid the rest of the document Some resources are only one page long and too simple This gives freedom to the teacher to use it without modifying it and if they want to connect them they can find other resources that explain what to do with each of the sheets
  17. 17. Teachers 'views on quality of educational resources existing in Scientix repository| Gina Mihai 20/03/2015| Florence International Conference New Perspective in Science Education, Edition 4 17 Evaluation and rating of educational resources Teachers’ views on the quality of resources There is no need on handcrafts and hands-on experiments to use ICT Then, ICT could be used to present the activity, demonstrational videos or present results Teachers prefer “ready to use” teaching materials, with lesson plans and activities Teachers’ lack of time has been reported in many different occasions Evaluating resources has helped our teachers to: • Learn new ways of teaching • Discover new teaching materials to use in their classes • Discover new projects on STEM education they didn’t know before • Be interested about the results and the different incomes from the different projects
