Colectic, the Spanish partner of the STEAMonEdu project, has participated in two events to present the project, the collaboration platform, the Competence Framework for STE(A)M Educators to educators and trainers and to request their opinion and collaboration.
The events were aimed at two different profiles of educators: the Encuentro de Centros Innovadores – DIM-Espiral (Meeting of Innovative Centers – DIM-Espiral) – for teachers and professors; and the Jornada de la Internet Social 2020 (Social Internet Annual Conference) – for e-facilitators and trainers).
The Encuentro de Centros Innovadores – DIM-Espiral (Meeting of Innovative Centers – DIM-Espiral) on 25 November brought together (online) teachers from all over the Spanish territory and offered a great variety of elements in its programme. Esther Subias, project manager at Colectic, organized a workshop focused on the draft of the competency framework and how it should – or not – be adapted so that STE(A)M education can take place despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the workshop, which was attended by 14 people, both the framework and the survey were presented; both elements had been designed and translated into several languages (including Spanish and Catalan) so that educators and policy makers can offer their opinion. The results of the meeting can be found on the website, where the framework can also be accessed.
The Jornada de la Internet Social 2020 (Social Internet Annual Conference), under the slogan “JdIS 2020: innovation, technology, and Punt TIC in pandemic situation” hosted on 15 December a conference by Colectic, which was attended by educators and trainers from telecentres and other non-formal education entities.
The presentation highlighted the European STEAMonEdu platform, which brings together STE(A)M educators and policy makers, as well as the Competence Framework and the survey to evaluate it that will be open to the contributions until 17 January. The conference was streamed on YouTube, and 53 people attended live.
Colectic seeks, in this way and in collaboration with its European partners, to encourage the participation of educators and trainers in the STEAMonEdu project and especially in this phase of the project, which puts on the table the key elements that will serve to lay the foundations of future training actions, planned for 2021.
