The Stories of Tomorrow Summer School is designed to be highly engaging, creative and interactive. Participating teachers will work in small groups and thus be able to collaborate with teachers from other countries, discuss ideas and exchange experiences in order to create a group activity which will encompass all the features of a successful storytelling inter-disciplinary science activity.
The course will last for 6 days, consisting in total of ca. 25 hours of workshop-based training, such as presentations followed by hands-on sessions (9 hours of lectures and demonstrations, 16 hours of hands-on workshops). The lectures and the demonstrations of the training course will be held in an auditorium equipped with a data projector and a laptop, whereas, the workshops will be held in a multimedia laboratory where each participant will have direct access to a PC with internet connection and will carry out planned exercises.
Throughout the duration of the course teachers will participate in activities from two different points of view:
- as learners using and testing the storytelling platform and supportive applications,
- as creators developing and implementing stories connected to e.g. space exploration.
Therefore, special sessions are dedicated to showcase and practice how to collaboratively experience and use the innovative tools and Stories of Tomorrow platform, as well as how to design storytelling educational activities using educational material from digital repositories. Participants will learn how to set up and work in the storytelling platform, how to personalize it, how to navigate through digital resources and how to assess students deeper learning in science.
One important aspect of the training activities is the collected feedback and the common discussion among participants. We will provide a platform to exchange ideas sand talk in detail about the requirements with respect to various aspects of the tools shown in order to facilitate their further development, maximize their efficiency and enhance the adaptation potential.
Designed for teaching professionals in STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, etc).
