STEM Education vs Traditional Education

Author: Alketa Barjami

For the 2020 STEM Discovery Campaign, I organised few activities. They are listed and described below.

“STEM Education vs Traditional Education”


Type of activity or action: Training session
Date: 20/04/2020 – 24/04/2020

STEM helps to turn new ideas into better education. Timely education during PANDEMIC showed that STEM in home conditions, with the presence of the Internet, brought solutions to online education. Traditional education allows the student to receive formal education and teaches to focus on the topic in question.

Resource: SCIENTIX WEBINAR: QUIRKY IDEAS TO PIQUE AND PROMOTE STUDENT INTEREST IN STEM CLASSROOMS.

For me, it was the first time I designed and implemented a lesson plan on Scientix, but it was not difficult … I could enrich it over time. The difficulty for students was that it was the first time they used online tools to build online puzzles. We could apply it for some more projects this month because we needed to learn online more…

My interest was to expand my students’ knowledge and grow professionally as well as to face the news of the inclusion of technology in laboratories, in teaching, in libraries, in the investigation, in the children’s games. We involved ART teacher, history and physics subjects. We used this form to create lesson plans by combining different teaching materials. A simple practice, which I planned to implement and train other teachers can be found here on Graasp.

Also, to use technology and STEM to investigate, create, discuss and conclude a product. All through ICT, STEM and online teaching during the lockdown. I will make it all public, but with the students we have another presentation session in an online show and we haven’t made public yet. We will do it on Europe Day. Subjects: History, Mathematics (geometry), Astrophysics, Arts, Science history. Target audience:
The general public, parents, professionals, researchers, school as an organisation, students, teachers.

I teach math and ICT in secondary school. I'm Scientix Ambassador, Global Math Ambassador, HunDred Ambassador and I think its the most important to share all the benefits of the scientix community and Schoolnet with the other teachers and researchers. For this I share all the informations with my colleagues on my group in Etwinning: Edual Academy Group
