HP’s Catalyst Initiative is initiating and bringing together 30 global projects to investigate the future of STEM education.
Futurelab’s role within the initiative is to lead a consortium of six projects investigating the future of initial teacher training for STEM teachers, attempting to understand further how we can better support and equip student teachers to be prepared for their first day of teaching and their fifth year of teaching. Developments in traditional STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and the strong emergence of related disciplines (such as computer science, multi-disciplinary sciences) challenge both what is taught and how it is taught in formative education. These challenges have implications for the role of the teacher in STEM+ teaching, and equally the support and training offered to student teachers.
Within the ‘Pedagogy 3.0’ consortium, Futurelab will be working with the following project teams:
- California State University, Dominguez Hills (Carson, California, USA) “Virtual Exchange Program: Connecting, Collaborating and Constructing STEM+ Learning”
- Fraunhofer Institute (Stuttgart, Germany) “Future Learning Environments”
- Kenyatta University (Nairobi, Kenya) “Using Technology to Support Teacher and Student Conceptual Learning in Mathematics and Science”
- Learning Games Network (Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA) “Design Corps”
- University of Exeter (Exeter, United Kingdom) “Inter-teaching: Developing dialogic approaches to STEM+ education through digital practitioner networks”
- University of Bristol, Graduate School of Education (Bristol, United Kingdom) “E-Scapes”
