The results of the STEAMonEdu project were presented online to German educators and STEM networkers at two national events organised by our project partner Helliwood media & education on 12 November and 25 November 2021.
MIN(K)T education in Europe at #KonfBD21
More than 1.400 educators and networkers from the German education landscape met online over three days from 10 to 12 November 2021 to take a close look at the current developments of digitisation within the German education system, to network and to discuss innovation. Especially the aspect of digital transformation occupied the stakeholders during the three-day event and so innovative topics such as attitude, activation of experiential spaces, change management and deeper learning in schools as well as the aspects for change in school education could be discussed in numerous sessions and in the livestream.
Equally the STEAMonEdu project also aims to qualify and empower educators for the digital transformation. This is what the results of the STEAMonEdu project stand for, which has produced numerous results in its two-year term (2020-2021) that promote the STE(A)M approach in (non)school education. The numerous results of the European project support policy makers and educators. In a workshop, the representatives of the German project partner Helliwood media & education worked out together with the participants the wealth of competences that STE(A)M educators should develop and train in order to successfully create contemporary educational offers.
4th Future Conference – STE(A)M Qualification of Educators
A further event, called the 4th Future Conference on the topic of STE(A)M qualification of pedagogues was held at a regional level as part of the German MINT Action Week on 25 November. The Helliwood media & education team welcomed networkers and teachers from the Berlin area who organise educational programmes in the STEM field and are actively involved in STEM networks. Dr. Anke Renger from the initiative junior1stein emphasised the STE(A)M approach, which needs to be expanded to reach more target groups and make science more interesting. The STEAMonEdu competence framework presented at the event supports the strategic approach to grant STE(A)M education attention also in the political context.
