STEM Ideation

We’ve all heard of the acronym STEM… so what does that really mean in practice? We’ll look at rapidly co-creating STEM lessons & projects that will make a meaningful difference for your students. The program will be highly collaborative and fast-paced, where you’ll gain ideas from teachers from a variety of grades in a design-thinking environment. Importantly, time is spent looking at how to realistically implement these ideas using the tools, budgets and resources you have at hand.

 

What do participants do?

We apply design thinking and ideation principles in a group-think environment to help you create meaningful STEM projects for your students.

Design thinking is a way of creatively solving challenges using materials in a set timeframe. Importantly, there are three steps involved

  1. Identifying; what the actual problem is that you’re trying to solve?
  2. Ideation; coming up a large array of ideas that could solve the problem
  3. Iteration; prototyping and testing multiple ideas, getting ever closer to the solution

This session is highly collaborative and fast-paced; be prepared for ideas to flow quickly from everyone in the room as we work together to make STEM in your school shine!

NSW Teachers

NESA will no longer endorse providers or register professional development in the way it has done in the past.

On 21 July 2020, the Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning requested that the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) undertake an immediate review of its process for endorsing professional development (PD) providers and courses. The internal review has been completed and the Minister has announced that the Accreditation of Professional Development Courses Policy (the Policy) will immediately replace the existing Endorsement of Professional Development Providers and Courses Policy (February 2019).

The judgement about the quality of non-accredited PD will be made by teachers. The priority areas, draft principles, criteria and application requirements for NESA Accredited PD
will be published on the NESA website and communicated by the end of 2020. NESA will also publish principles for effective professional learning and criteria to guide providers
in evaluating current and future courses to ensure they meet the quality standards expected by NESA.

Post-It notes on butchers paper. Each Post-It note describes a student project. The Post-It notes have been arranged on a chart with two axis. The X-axis charts impact from Low to High. The Y-axis charts Difficulty from Low to High. The chart is divided into quadrants whereby low difficulty & low impact is classified as tactical. Low difficulty & high difficulty is classified as a luxury. High impact and low difficulty is classified as Just Do It. High Difficulty and High Impact is classified as strategic.
