DIGI TV

Navigating through information in digital age

Today, the importance of digital literacy has increased with the development of technology. Therefore, it is necessary to protect our next generation students from information pollution and misleading news. We divided our students into four groups at DIGI TV. The first group worked figured out positive and negative information about the news. The second group was an announcer and gave information about safe Internet use. The third group made a presentation about cyber and peer bullying. The last group gave information about conscious digital citizenship. As a result, they learned how to keep up with the digital age with the TV they made.

How did it start?

Our Digital STEM project aims to increase the interest of our students in the fields of science, technology, mathematics and engineering. Apart from this, it is aimed to train students who can think creatively, solve problems and have 21st-century skills by integrating STEM disciplines with each other. In our project, Ayşe attended the safe Internet lesson given in her school. In this lesson, they learned that not every information they heard on every television was correct and that they had to investigate. She decided to tell this information to her brother through play. Upon this, she became a news presenter by making a television.

One Seed One Sapling For A World

Event Name-Content: One Seed One Sapling ( Climate Change )

Type of Activity: Science and Nature Art Activity (Integrated Large and Small Group Activity)

In my single seed sapling scenario, we enabled our students to discover and learn what we can do to instill a love for trees, protect our world from the negative effects of global warming, and raise awareness about climate change. We learned the benefits of trees and forests for our world. We made seed balls that cannot be thrown from the accumulated waste paper. We observed our seed balls and acorns, we were responsible for their care. When we reached a sufficient size, we planted them in nature with our families.

Achievement and Indicators:

Motor Development : K4: Makes the movements that require the use of small muscles. ( Pours the objects from the container to the container. Gives the materials to the shape with their hands. It cuts the materials. Bonds the materials)

Cognitive Development : K 2: Predicts about an object / situation / event. ( Tells the guess about the object / situation / event. Examines the real situation. )

K5: Observes the object or entities. (Tells the color of the object / entity.

K 17: Establishes a cause-effect relationship. ( Tells the possible reasons of an event. Tells the possible consequences of an event. )

K 19: Produces solutions to problem situations. ( Tells the problem. Suggests various solutions to the problem . Chooses one of the solutions. )

Language Development : K5: Uses language for communication purposes. ( Participates in a conversation. He tells his feelings, thoughts and dreams .)

SUSTAINABLE WORLD: WATER

This activity is a part of Etwinning Project STEAM for 5PS in partnership with 5 Scientix Ambassador Teachers from Turkey, Greece, and Portugal. This learning scenario is applied as an international online meeting, and worked in transnational teams (We used Zoom Break Out Rooms for student discussion groups but Microsoft Teams or other tools can be used as well). This learning scenario can also be applied as a single classroom activity.

“The World is My Habitat” Ecological and Carbon footprint, Covid-19’s Impact on Carbon Footprint

Habitat or habitat, the place where a creature lives and thrives. This place can be a physical region, a special part of the earth, air, soil, or water. Habitat can be as large as an ocean or a meadow, or a decayed tree can be as small as an insect’s gut.
The cause of global warming is the harmful gases people release into the atmosphere. With this study, our aim is to raise awareness by providing a better understanding of the concept of carbon footprint in society.

Technology is developing rapidly, the consumption trend is increasing day by day. It is not possible to directly reduce the carbon footprint to zero as we cannot give up our basic vital activities.
Scientific process steps will be applied in the study. Literature review, research, examination, comparison and decision-making methods will be used. With this study, we measure our carbon footprint, and the annual average amount of carbon a person releases into the atmosphere will be determined. Through the school website, social media and EBA, posts, presentations, videos, short films and paintings will be made to raise awareness of the society.


How to Reduce Carbon Footprint?

  1. Walk
  2. Use a bicycle
  3. Preferance to bulk transport
  4. Travel with More than one person in individual vehicles
  5. Reduce flight rides
  6. Use a hybrid tool
  7. Pay attention to energy efficiency inside the home
  8. Use enough electronic products

With (“The World is My Living Space”), we are participating in the 2021 STEM Discovery Week, (6 countries). We are working with 15 teachers and 105 students.
2021 Stem Discovery Campaign and (“The World is My Habitat”) Project Training.
1-Ecological and Carbon footprint, Covid-19’s Impact on Carbon Footprint
2-Water footprint
3-Recycling
4-Forest footprint grassland footprint agriculture footprint
5-Global warming
6-Renewable energy

With this study, it has been tried to popularize what will be done to reduce the carbon footprint in society. By saving energy we can reduce our carbon footprint by doing and changing some of our habits. In addition, trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. The importance of planting trees for society will be explained in order to pay off our debt to nature, albeit a little.
