    9. 9. ESTABLISH (European Science and Technology in Action: Building Links with Industry, Schools and Home) is a four year (2010-2013) The overall objective of this project is to facilitate and implement an inquiry-based approach to science education for second level students (age 12-18 years) on a widespread scale across Europe by bringing together, within a collaborative environment, the specific key stakeholders in science education. The aim of ESTABLISH is to create authentic learning environments for science education by bringing together and involving all the key communities in second level science education. The ESTABLISH group of over 60 partners from 11 European countries are working with these key communities including science teachers and educators, the scientific and industrial communities, the young people and their parents, the policy makers responsible for science curriculum and assessment and the science education research community. "What is scientific inquiry?" … it is describes an engaging constructivist learning approach, providing opportunities for students to search for and construct meaning from the real world and to reflect on experiences. PRESENTATIONS • Bringing innovative IBSE teaching to school: A collaborative approach of university and school • Profiling in-service teachers across Europe to determine their attitude to IBSE. • Collecting evidence about the impact of inquiry based science education on students – The ESTABLISH project approach • Teachers’ and students’ views on industry-related competences.

    11. 11. ASSIST-ME Assess Inquiry in Science, Technology and Mathematics Education The overall aim of ASSISTME is to provide a research base on effective uptake of formative and summative assessment for inquiry-based, competence oriented Science, Technology and Mathematics (STM) education in primary and secondary education in different educational contexts in Europe and to use this research base to give policy makers and other stakeholders guidelines for ensuring that assessment enhances learning in STM education. Based on an analysis of what is known about summative and formative assessment of knowledge, skills and attitudes related to key STM competences and an analysis of European educational systems, the project will design a range of combined assessment methods. These methods will be tested in primary and secondary schools in different educational cultures in Europe in order to analyse the conditions that support or undermine the uptake of formative assessment related to inquiry processes. PRESENTATIONS • Contemporary Issues in Science Education - Discussion
    12. 12. PRI-SCI-NET is an EU funded FP7 Supporting and coordinating action (Call SiS-2010-2.2.1.1) on innovative methods in science education: teacher training on inquiry based teaching methods on a large scale in Europe. The project promotes Inquiry-based learning approach among primary teachers teaching science to young children in the age range of 3-11 years. The inquiry approach involves the active engagement of children in the learning process with emphasis on observations and achieved through authentic and problem based learning activities where there is no need to get the correct. Children draw conclusions on the evidence collected. It promotes student autonomy, involves discursive argumentation and communication with peers (talking science), self regulated learning, social interaction and collaboration. This project is about setting up a Europe-wide network for professionals and academics in the area of Primary Science Education. The aim is to provide training and professional support to teachers to help them use Inquiry based learning in Science in schools. The platform at European level will network professionals as well as support the organisation of training courses. It also recognises teachers’ and researchers’ achievements in implementing Inquiry-based learning in science, as well as provide an opportunity for teachers and academics to share their experiences and successes. PRESENTATION • Policy and practice in early years science and mathematics
    13. 13. PRESEES Preparing Science Educators for Everyday Science. The aim of the project is to engage elementary and secondary pre-service teachers in critical discussions of everyday science through socioscientific issues (SSI), and prepare them to teach SSI. Socioscientific issues The ability to deal with everyday scientific issues and socioscientific issues (SSI) has been recognized as an important goal of science education (e.g. Sadler, 2009). Furthermore, the inclusion of SSI in science teaching could move science classes towards unwrapping and engaging discussions and, thus promote dialogic arguments, understanding the nature of science, and conceptual understanding. The inclusion of SSI in the curriculum offers a means of expanding both the curriculum and the range of instructional practices commonly experienced in the school science classroom. Studies in SSI so far have focused on students’ decision making (e.g. Jiménez-Aleixandre & Pereiro-Munoz, 2002; Ratcliffe, 1996), conceptual understanding, and engagement with science (e.g. Albe, 2008). A main gap in research however is how teachers (either pre or in-service) approach everyday science and SSI in their teaching. PRESENTATIONS • Using models and SSI as a context of instruction in science: Students’ emotions and engagement
    14. 14. CoReflect (: Digital support for Inquiry, Collaboration, and Reflection on Socio-Scientific Debates) aims to bring together eight diverse and multi-disciplinary teams from seven European states, the project members promoted evidence-based practice in science teaching and learning, by collaborating to iteratively design, enact, critique, and validate problem-based innovative inquiry learning environments. These environments, which are being hosted on the STOCHASMOS web-based teaching and learning platform, coupled data-rich scientific rigor with the flexibility and easy modifiability that is needed for widespread adoption and use by teachers. PRESENTATIONS • Collaboration scripts to scaffold inquiry-based learning: An investigation of guidance level, students’ help-seeking and teacher's help-giving activities
    15. 15. weSPOT (Working Environment with Social, Personal and Open Technologies for inquiry based learning) is a new project supported by the European Commission launching on 1st of October 2012. weSPOT aims at propagating scientific inquiry as the approach for science learning and teaching in combination with today's curricula and teaching practices. It lowers the threshold for linking everyday life with science teaching in schools by technology. weSPOT supports the meaningful contextualization of scientific concepts by relating them to personal curiosity, experiences, and reasoning. weSPOT addresses several challenges in the area of science learning and technology support for building personal conceptual knowledge. The project focuses on inquiry-based learning with a theoretically sound and technology supported personal inquiry approach. In weSPOT inquiry based-learning enviroment, co-learners will be motivated by their personal curiosities, guided by self and collective reflections, for developing personal knowledge and collaborative scientific reasoning. weSPOT will work on a meta-inquiry level. Its aims are: • define a reference model for inquiry-based learning skills, • create a diagnostic instrument for measuring inquiry skills, • implement a working environment that allows the easy linking of inquiry activities with school curricula and legacy systems. PRESENTATIONS Undergraduate Biology students' perceptions of pre-service teacher education for using ICT in the classroom
    16. 16. Undergraduate Biology students' perceptions of pre-service teacher education for using ICT in the classroom PhD student Andre Correa presented his doctoral research in development at ESERA . The first phase of his investigation focused on the perceptions on use of ICT by Brazilian undergraduates who are or will soon be pre- service Biology teachers. His initial outcomes describe a new generation of teachers, who are familiar with new technologies like web 2.0 and mobile devices (smart phones and tablets). The majority think that they are able to apply new technologies for Biology teaching. However, most have never used ICT during their formal learning in the University or during their teaching training courses. Andre Correa will analyse the use of weSPOT of this group of pre-service teachers. His research aims to identify benefits and barriers for promoting technologies for inquiry based learning for the new generation of teachers. These new science educators are familiar with new technologies but do not have experience nor pedagogical models for applying technologies in their classroom.
