Prepare students for the 21st century with STEM training!
Do you want to be a teacher who will educate 21st century students? Do you aim to ensure that your students are not consuming, producing and solving real-life problems? You’ve heard of STEM training, but don’t know exactly what it is? They do a number of designs, integrate them into your lesson, but do you need to do more? Want to expand your technological knowledge and skills?
Join us to use STEM in your classes!
In our country, where the memorandum of education is also supported by exam and student selection methods, the change in the exam questions and the efforts to create national enterprises in the industry changed the expectations of the society on the schools and thus made the STEM Flow solution for the education of our country.
So what is STEM Teacher? What skills should you have?
The program, which many of us have found instinctively, takes into account the programmatic and pedagogical principles, and also features a list for the skills that a STEM teacher should have.
Education 1: What is STEM, What is not? Theoretical + Application
It is very difficult to make a real definition of what STEM is. Is STEM a method, a tool, a type of activity, or a philosophy? It is also impossible to be a STEM teacher without answering these questions.
At the end of this chapter, we will understand what STEM is, its mission and its vision. A STEM Teacher and STEM Student will determine our needs at the end of the section and we will draw our own road map. STEM Stream Turkey and the Turkish Education System will analyze how we should plan an education system that blends in with the facts.
Education 2: 21st Century Skills Theory + Practice
With the advancing technology, the definition of the student who stored the most information of the successful student disappeared. We strive to develop new skills for students in order to prepare them for their professional lives and to provide maximum benefit from education. These achievements, gathered under the 21st Century Skills, also explain the human profile expected from the next generation. In the event we will study how to incorporate these skills into education, we will also begin to examine the types of classroom activities.
Education 3: Understanding By Design: UbD Workshop Application
UbD is simply the product of a philosophy that makes the unit and lesson plan for students to understand deep and permanent. UbD offers us a framework that allows us not to lose the main focus while dealing with all the details of the learning process. After studying the basic philosophy of UbD and studying the sample courses and units using UbD theme, we will make our own UbD plans.
Education 4: Nonsense of STEM Course: Theory
As a result of long and varied research and scanned from a wide variety of sources, we are beginning to shape our UbD plans and fill the contents with STEM Targets with the small notes that every teacher should keep in mind.
Education 5: Engineering Design Process: Theory + Application
When defining the learning process, it is important to provide a framework for the students and to make sure that this framework is guiding. The Engineering Design Process provides a framework for planning by considering the next step. The motto ST We must provide process-oriented training, not the result. Süreç revealed the importance of ”Product iy development with the STEM flow. With the Engineering Design Process, we will add a tool to our toolbox that makes it easier for students to achieve both their 21st Century skills and STEM Achievements.
Education 6: Active Learning Environments and Methods: Theory + Application
Innovative solutions are not possible in student-centered education systems with classical methods. With Inquiry-Based Learning, we will learn about Tab Problem Based Learning ız and 5E Learning Cycle.
Education 7: Assessment Assessment: Theory + Application
The changing education process with STEM Flow also requires changes in the measurement and evaluation of learning. In this context, we will explore alternative approaches to process and outcome assessments and develop our own assessment tools. We will discuss how to create an environment in which the assessment does not turn into a punishment process by a detailed analysis of the student achievement by using a system where we can reach each student and correct them at the time of mistakes.
Education 8: Design Your Own Unit: Application
We will prepare a unit plan in our branch by bringing together the documents we prepared during the process. We will start to prepare the content and activities by detailing the unit plan we prepared.
Education 9: Activities for the classroom in the Integrated STEM Training: Practice
With STEM Events, which were previously applied in different institutions or research projects at various times, we will understand how students feel, what they learn and what they need during the events. We will be observing the sine qua non of our own activities while carrying out proven activities. Of course, we’ll all be enjoying each other as a student and having fun while learning.
Education 10: Robotic: The application of STEM
Even if it is not advanced, mastery of programming is a big advantage for teachers to develop STEM applications. At the same time to help students in terms of model and prototype mastery of the basic engineering skills, to eliminate many problems at the level of activity development. We will design and program robots using VEX IQ and VEX EDR kits.
Training 11: STEM Activities with Robots Carried to Classes: Practice
We will start by discussing why the robotics cannot be moved to classes in the current state.
