The 14th Scientix Projects’ Networking Event (SPNE) was held at TECHNOPOLIS in Athens, Greece, on 5 September 2018. SPNE14 brought together 30 participants, among them experts, researchers, teachers, policy makers and representatives of organisations working on the topic of “Research into the classroom“.
Prof. Achilles Kameas, Head of DAISSy research group of Hellenic Open University and Vice Chair of ALL DIGITAL Board, presented project UMI-Sci-Ed (http://umi-sci-ed.eu/) as a good practice in promoting STEM Education in the classroom using Mobile and IoT technologies.
During the second half, a three-stage participatory activity was organized, during which participants discussed the importance of science outreach programmes in dispelling negative stereotypes associated with science and research and produce a draft of recommendations of follow up actions on bridging research and classroom practice. The results of the discussion will be published in a Scientix Observatory article co-authored by all participants, that will be available here: http://scientix.eu/observatory
