Recently our teachers from all campuses participated in a STEM/STEAM professional development workshop facilitated by Ralph Pirozzo the Director and Founder of Promoting Learning International.
The intensive workshop focused on various teaching techniques to enhance STEM/STEAM student’s engagement and participation. These included;
- 36 Thinking skills, so students can “Think -outside-of-the box”
- 50 Cooperative Learning Activities, enabling students to create new ideas, products and inventions.
- 47 small robots
- Coding and Looping
The remainder of the session was focused on teachers to create interactive and outstanding STEM/STEAM units based on Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) standards.
