Exciting Innovative Global STEAM Programme
Dear Principals and Teachers,
We are keen to work with you in facilitating a S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) programme with schools overseas.
The goal is to establish an innovative online forum in which all NZ and Chinese learners & teachers can connect and work on collaborative S.T.E.A.M. programmes.
- Creating and being part of the exciting innovative S.T.E.A.M. programmes.
- Students will be able to participate in authentic problem-solving tasks, demonstrate critical thinking and develop cultural understanding through global collaborative online learning.
- Teachers will gain a better understanding of online teaching and learning, as well as planning of S.T.E.A.M. programmes.
- Experts will assist teachers in developing your own S.T.E.A.M. curriculum related to school term topics.
- Using online education software Beatop for live-streaming dual classes, connecting classrooms and students in NZ and China.
- Proper computer and sound devices are required, however, IT support and sound-video assistance will be provided during the S.T.E.A.M.term.
- Beatop also includes an online forum for student work demonstration, collaboration, and communication.
- Topic choosing (We have 10 topics and you are free to create your own one）
- Online workshop (Optional)
- Experts involvement （New topic only）
- Lesson plan, teaching materials and PPT shared by A&E
- Meeting with Chinese teacher/students online in ice-break class.
