Objectives

English

The course’s main objective is to introduce to teachers the use of online virtual experimentations and remote laboratories as well as inquiry-based science teaching techniques in order to help them develop, improve and enhance their teaching skills and practices. These tools and techniques will facilitate them in engaging their students into science topics, in order to acquire scientific inquiry skills and experience the culture of doing science, under motivating circumstances, by undertaking active, guided, experimentation, carried out in renown scientific facilities and research centers.

The course will also strengthen its social cohesive and European dimension by inviting participants to be part of a community of practice that will allow them to exchange and share ideas, experiences, concerns and educational resources with fellow teachers across Europe and introduce them to on-line learning repositories, portals and educational metadata.

The repertoire of online labs, experimentations and best practices, and the educational tools that will be presented in combination with the hands-on activities will facilitate the participants in learning how to deploy and integrate them in their school environment and everyday science teaching practice and also how to contribute their own work into educational repositories and share it within a European community of practice.
