Hi and welcome to the European Schoolnet Academy.
The Academy is a platform where you can learn about innovation in the school and classroom through online professional development courses for teachers in primary and secondary schools.
The courses offered on this platform are completely free of charge. They will offer you an introduction to key concepts and ideas that are relevant to developing your practice and will provide you with the opportunity to discuss these ideas and share your experiences with your peers. We hope that by attending these courses and by engaging with your peers you will feel empowered and inspired to try out something new in your practice.
The Academy is very much an experiment and we rely on your participation and feedback to make this project a success. So please use this opportunity, learn and connect with your peers and let us know what you think.
We look forward to seeing you on one of the courses! Happy learning...
Navigation through the Ages
Since early times, the observation of the sky has been a key cultural element and has played an important role in the way we live. In The Navigation through the Ages MOOC, we will explore the rich history of navigation, and journey together from ancient Greece, the fifteenth century European explorers and their missions of global discovery, to the importance of Europe's Galileo programme for the current needs of citizens (mobile devices, increased mobility, safety, security etc.)
Boosting a Sense of Initiative and Entrepreneurship in Your Students
This course has been designed with the intention to provide concrete examples for the practical implementation of the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework (EntreComp). Each module consists of several videos, illustrating lesson plans, teaching activities, or possible resources that could enable teachers and educators to foster entrepreneurial skills in their students.
Opening Minds to STEM Careers
The "Opening minds to STEM careers" MOOC is designed to train and empower primary and secondary teachers in successfully introducing and attracting young people to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) professions. The main purpose of the course is to learn how to integrate STEM career orientation activities both in the curriculum and in lesson planning. This will enable teachers to become familiar with STEM career pathways while providing students with the necessary skills to enter the job market.
