iStage 2 workshop in Lyon

On 11 April 2017 Jean-Luc Richter and Philippe Jeanjacquot from France gave a teacher training based on the brochure iStage 2 - Smartphones in Science Teaching at the Institut français de l'Éducation in Lyon. With Jean-Luc Richter playing the guitar the teachers did amongst other things experiments on the spectrum of sounds with their smartphones.

Hungary: iStage 2 workshop at IT-conference in Budapest

From 20-21 October a conference on the use of new digital media in public education was held in Budapest. The event was supported amongst others by the Institute of Education Research and Development, Microsoft Hungary and Modern School. Also Márta Gajdosné-Szabó from Science on Stage Hungary and four of her students took part and presented the workshop 'How deep is your blue' based on the brochure 'iStage 2 - Smartphones in Science Teaching'. A big success, as you can tell by the pictures!

Big success: Teacher training on ‘Smartphones in Science Teaching’ in Bozen and Bologna

On Feburary 25th Marco Nicolini from Science on Stage Italy gave a teacher training based on the brochure 'iStage 2 - Smartphones in Science teaching' in Bozen - and it was a big success! Presented got the teaching units 'How Deep Is Your Blue? Coloured Chemistry with Smartphones' and 'Noise Pollution'.

Another teacher training based on 'iStage 2' took place in Bologna on March 20th and 27th with Giovanni Pezzi, Lorenza Resta, Alessandro Foschi and Sara Orsola Parolin as speakers.

STEM is a roller coaster

Curve sketching, acceleration or free fall: Amusement parks are a wonderland to think about science teaching concepts. At the Italian Mirabilandia amusement park in Ravenna, science teachers recently came together not only to ride roller coasters, but to discuss their new ideas for STEM education (“Nuove Idee per l'Insegnamento scientifico"). Among them were several Science on Stage teachers.

 


Giovanni Pezzi, participant of the Science on Stage festival 2013, presented his ideas of how to do video analysis of the dynamics of roller coasters using the computer program Tracker to the teachers at the conference.

Lorenza Resta, who also participated in the last festival, presented her ideas about how teachers can measure acceleration and velocity by using smartphones on amusement park attractions. Lorenza will publish these teaching ideas in the upcoming Science on Stage Germany brochure iStage 2 - Smartphones in Science Teaching, which will be launched in December with the support of SAP.

As coordinator of the project, Jean-Luc Richter introduced iStage 2 and the Science on Stage smartphone fun fair competition, which is still open to interested teachers.

The participating teachers also had the chance to test the newly acquired teaching ideas at Mirabilandia amusement park. Their students are surely looking forward to their next STEM classes.
