  • D2.2 Integrated Operational Design Strategy

    Large scale innovation projects such as Inspiring Science Education with their aim to reach and impact STEM education in over 27 European countries are organisationally complicated. As such as the ISE project design included a methodological work package with the purpose of providing a support programme to help address organisational challenges such as the differences in focus between those supporting the technological components and those working in educational settings. The Integrated Operational Design Strategy draws from data gathered among the project partners on the perceived challenges in delivering this project. This was done through a qualitative survey, observation of the ISE organisational dynamics and a workshop at the second project management meeting. This deliverable describes the strategy underlying the work to be done in WP2.
  • D2.3 Stakeholders' Validated Project Implementation Plan and Report 2

  • D3.4.2 Inspiring Science Education Demonstrators

    This deliverable provides information about progress in WP3. It focuses on the adaption of paper-and-pencil Demonstrators from the first project year to a digital learning environment and quality characteristics of the recently digital Demonstrators. Following these criteria Demonstrators are: clear (for teachers and students on what they have to do) and simple (to use, adopt, change, flexible), inspiring and motivating, relevant to students (real world problems) and teachers (syllabus connection), working (complete, all links and material available), Inquiry based, containing online tools and resources and follow at least one Big Idea of Science. In this deliverable it is explained how these characteristics can be implemented and verified. Furthermore, we give an overview over collected Demonstrators in the 2nd project year and show some example Demonstrators. In the annex you can find guidelines about designing new digital scenarios/Demonstrators and more detailed guidelines for review of Demonstrators for quality assurance.
