  3. 3. Which tool should you use?
  4. 4. Very clear schedule
  5. 5. Include time for actual work from participants Offline Offline Offline
  6. 6. Virtual breakout rooms
  7. 7. Finally • Be prepared for the unforeseen and be flexible! • Have someone dedicated to technical support for the participants and speakers • Repeating yourself and speaking slowly is extra important.

  10. 10. Traditional face to face • Create specific activities for the demography we want to reach: • Level of content • Language • Tone • We know the audience we are addressing and continuously monitor reactions • We can address underrepresented or underprivileged groups by working with appropriate associations and public authorities, supporting travel etc.
  11. 11. Online in usual times • Have to create specific online activities for the demography we want to address: We cannot simply adapt face-to-face activities to online because it won´t work • We do not have an audience: we have people listening, but they do not form an audience and you don´t know their reactions • Web activities are not inclusive: a survey today in the main Portuguese newspaper showed that ¼ of the primary school children in the Lisbon area – the most developed – does not have a computer at home
  12. 12. Online with COVID19 • We have to keep our communities engaged during COVID19 times: • Families are stressed at home dealing with simultaneous chores: telework for parents, teleschool for children • Maybe we should stress on social media – engagement can be asynchronous but wide if we use different social networks according to the demography, we want to target Give them something that is relevant for them:

  15. 15. Online trainings • Good Practices for teaching Astronomy or Space Science in the classroom a) Online live – requires visiting a site and taking action e.g. collecting real data and analysing it The structure could be: Preparation - depends on the way the data will be collected, collaboratively or individually [share files/link Presentation / Visit a link – Collect data / Guide through the analysis Example: 1. Using robotic telescopes in classroom (collect data) 2. Requesting data files from researchers (request data) https://images.nasa.gov/

  17. 17. Online trainings – applications online • Good Practices for teaching Astronomy or Space Science in the classroom b) Online (archives) or Offline – requires opening an app (downloadable on your computer) and taking an action e.g. running the app with specific parameters. The structure could be: Preparation - depends on the way the app will be used, to repeat action or collect data [share link for downloading / ask to familiarize themselves with it prior to the training] Presentation / Open app – Collect data(?) / Guide through the analysis Example: 1. Run application and collect data or identify components/optimum solutions 2. Using data archives (request data) https://www.nasa.gov/nasa-at-home-for-kids-and-families

  20. 20. Science Gallery Dublin Brendan Owens, Open Science Coordinator
  21. 21. Context • Training Workshop to replace onsite interactive training • 21 participants across 9 partner countries with Science Gallery hosting • Timezone variations - Irish Standard Time (GMT+1), Central European Summer Time (GMT+2), Eastern European Summer Time (GMT+3) • Content and objectives: • Icebreaker • Feedback for a draft survey • Stakeholder tools training • Review the training format and duration • KEY: LOW on presentation, HIGH on interaction
  22. 22. Tools and preparation • Mural (mural.co - shared whiteboard space with many templates) • Zoom (zoom.us - video conferencing with breakout rooms feature) • Mentimeter (menti.com - easy to vote on mobile devices) 1. Zoom - practicing etiquette (headphones, chat, mute/unmute) 2. Mural - PRE-WORK exercise (simple task, much instruction) 3. Mentimeter - Prepared prior to workshop (codes added to the mural) NOTE: These tools all incur a cost for their full functionality, some free alternatives are out there.
  23. 23. On the day communication • Familiar traps of video conferencing • Task versus Talk • Decision making • Breakout Rooms • Lessons learned: • Switch modes, don’t mix • Voting within Mural less successful than Menti • Let written instructions speak for themselves (within reason) • Pre-work is the right idea

  29. 29. Why moodle SOCIAL CONSTRUCTIVISM IT CONTAINS ACTIVITIES SUCH US FORUMS FOR COLLABORATION. IT HAS ALTERNATIVE WAYS OF BUILDING INTERACTIONS SUCH AS WIKIS IT CONTAINS THE ABILITY OF CREATING PERSONAL BLOGS. IT IS FLEXIBLE AND VERSATILE FREE AND OPEN SOURCE
  30. 30. Imagine as a platform That comes with a great set of Bricks
  31. 31. We can put this bricks (activities, blocks, resources e.t.c.) on this platform designing different foundation that called courses.

  36. 36. As our Social Behavior is changing…
  37. 37. ….Moodle is changing too adding a Mobile app
  38. 38. Moodle + Mobile App • Low cost • Building Community • Direct Feedback • Social Network Simulation •ANALYTICS
  39. 39. Social Constructivism Club Creation • Knowledge is the result of human cognitive structures • Individual builds his own reality through the self- organization of his experiences. • Also creates new knowledge by actively interacting with his environment.

  42. 42. From my experience Technical requirements: • Prepare an online meeting as if it were going live! • Good internet, platform and settings (who, what, how will access be) • Send pre-prepared materials (links, homework materials) The first online competition for children's drawings "Our fragile planet“ inspired by SPACE EU An idea for integrating science and art
  43. 43. From my experience Pedagogical approach: • Duration not exceeding 50-60 min. • Be interactive with the participants • After the theoretical part (about 20 min), provide brief guidelines for the practical part (the model the participants will develop) and the necessary materials. For example, making an "Equatorial sundial" of cardboard or a moving “Star map" of paper. (about 25 min) • Discussion - working with the finished model, explaining how to use it with the students (about 10 min) • Questions and feedback (about 5 min) If you are in your science / room / school office and have instruments (such as a telescope, a microscope), you can demonstrate • Encourage the use of citizen science resources The first online competition for children's drawings "Our fragile planet“ inspired by SPACE EU An idea for integrating science and art
