A lookback on Science on Stage Serbia’s webinars

In summer 2020 Science on Stage Serbia started a series of webinars to train ducators and teachers. With "Examples of the best STEAM teaching practices in Serbia" the team wants to introduce the Science on Stage network to teachers and potential partners.

The webinars are organized in two parts. First the speaker presents their examples of good STE(A)M teaching concepts. After the presentiation the participants get the chance to communicate directly wiith the speaker and each other, ask questions and discuss. 

In the last two months three webinars were held. The topics were: 

1st webinar, 08.07.2020

Make your city (architecture and connecting mathematics

Anica Trickovic, mathematics teacher, presented how mathematics can be learned outside the classroom, how this subject is used in student professional orientation, interpersonal connections, developing team spirit and affirmative relations in the classroom. But also shows how students from fifth to eighth grade can easily calculate the areas of all mathematical figures with understanding.

Do we really need nuclear power plants? - practical IT tools in physics teaching

Our lecturer Mladen Sljivovic, physics teacher, presented a presentation "Do we really need nuclear power plants?" - practical IT tools in physics teaching ”, which won at the Scientix competition for innovative approach in education, but also by national award for the best example of the use of ICT in teaching scientific subjects in high school.   

2nd webinar:  24.07.2020

When can Eratosthenes, so can we (Eratosthenes experiment)  

Tatjana Markovic Topalovic, a physics teacher, presented the history of the Eratosthenes' experiment and emphasized the importance of connecting history and philosophy with modern education. Mathematics teacher Snezana Tosovic presented how we can use Eratosthenes' experiment as an example for project teaching, with students from elementary school to high school. Danilo Borovnica, a teacher of mathematics and informatics, shared his  experiences from participating in aglobal experiment of measuring the circumference of the Earth by meridians, in which, together with his students, he used various tools and STEAM applicable knowledge to prepare and implement the project.

3th webinar: 10.08.2020

Mathematics and poetry

The presentation showd how poetry and mathematics can be connected in teaching with the aim of acquiring mathematical knowledge. Webinar participants were encouraged to look for inspiration themselves and to start writing mathematical poetry. Presented by Natalija Budinski, Mathematics teacher.

Introducing the micro:bit and its capabilities

How can the micro:bit be used as a teaching tool for developing critical thinking and problem solving in the upper grades of primary school? Dalibor Todorović computer science teacher, shared his experience on using micro: bit as a teacher, as well as a consultant on the development and adaptation of manuals for Coding Clubs in the Western Balkans. 

The response of teachers was excellent, about 250 teachers all across Serbia participated at each webinar. 

 

The future activities: 

In the first webinars, presentations were done by members of Science on Stage Serbia in serbian language, but, in the future, SonS ambassadors and supportes will be included. The target group are primary and secondary school teachers.

Find here an overview of the coming webinars:

Webinars will take place on the 2nd and 4th week of every month, until the end of the year. 

  • 10.09.2020: Games for developing algorithmic thinking for the kids 
  • 10.09.2020: NET cabinet
  • 24.09.2020: Scientific phenomenon of the circle in the folk tradition of our region
  • 24.09.2020: Logifaces cubes

Science on Stage Serbia organized their workshop

On Friday, January 17, ICE’s Center for Professional Development and Science on Stage Serbia organized the first in a series of STEM workshops about the important topic "waste". The speaker was Ivan Anić, professor at the Information Technology School and an ICE member and associate. 

The tasks presented at the workshop showed the numerous teachers in attendance how to connect STEM subjects in an interesting fashion and implement problem-solving teaching. The teachers  took the roles of students and tried to use STEM to solve waste-related problems.The research tasks required the teachers to actively use digital tools and apps, critically assess their resources, and apply skills from all STEM areas. After the workshop, the speaker performed an evaluation with his colleagues and showed them how they can do this using the Mentimeter IT tool. 

After the first workshop, ICE will organize STEM workshops each month with interesting topics and problem-solving tasks. The colleagues who display the highest level of enthusiasm will have the opportunity to become official Science on Stage ambassadors, and participate in Brainfinity – Collaborative Problem Solving Challenge, an ICE-organized competition for all primary school students in Serbia attending years 5 through 8, who wish to test their creative problem-solving skills and win valuable prizes. The teachers who reach the finals with their team will also win a prize – a free one-year membership at the Institute for Contemporary Education.
