Pilot Cycle 1: 170 teachers from 150 schools in 21 European countries “I gained experience in using ICT tools to do mathematics. This is an aspect of the curriculum that is generally overlooked” 80% of teachers say pupils are now more interested in STEM careers “(My pupils) learned some new mathematical and physical rules that aren’t in their curriculum yet but that make them more aware of how STEM subjects are related to everyday life.” 95% thought the activities had proactively enhanced their teaching skills and practices

  26. 26. Scientix | C. Kerr 22/5/2013 | Jerusalem, Israel Scientix 26 Scientix European Conference 6-8 May 2011, Brussels Conclusions: • Key elements of a good science education system: school curriculum, pedagogy and assessment [...however...] the quality of an education system depends ultimately on the quality of its teachers. • All presentations on innovative approaches to science education --> inquiry- based approach (facts and figures + process of producing scientific knowledge). Practical experience –> learning by doing + first-hand contact with real research. • To fully exploit the concept of inquiry based learning, teachers have to be properly trained. Teachers should combine excellent knowledge of their subject with excellent pedagogical and assessment skills. • Take on board more teachers, researchers and science communicators to overcome fragmentation and promote best practices across Europe.
