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...
STEM Is Everywhere!
This course is meant to connect Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) classes with "real life" and help teachers integrate real-world problems into their STEM lessons and practices. The lack of connection between real life and STEM classes might cause students to rule out STEM careers, because they feel detached from STEM and might deem it too "academic" or "research-oriented". Therefore, the ‘STEM Is Everywhere!' course offers guidance and practical examples for you to bring real-world problems to your STEM teaching in an entertaining way.
"Yes I can" – Empowering Student Learning
This course aims to enable teachers to support their students to better connect learning taking place in formal, non-formal and informal learning contexts. During the course, teachers will learn how to use personalized and collaborative learning as teaching approaches to empower their students in their learning.
This course is now open for registration. You can enrol by clicking the "Enrol in this course" button on the course landing page.
