Université Côte d'Azur - Techno-creative weekend - 5th and 6th of February 2022

This 5th and 6th February 2022, we invite you to come to Nice for a techno-creative weekend to discover STEAM activities. No prior knowledge is required, newbies welcome!

The workshop will be held in French, but English-speaking participants will be helped within a specific group. The STEAM (Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) aims to stimulate the interest of apprentices in science and technology and to develop their creative problem-solving skills. During this weekend, we will reunite teachers, educators, leaders, pioneers, instructional designers, and other EdTech innovators to design creative learning activities using a new microcontroller card: STM32. Together, we will experience and test activities for the next generation of techno-creative learning. The workshop will include the design of STEAM activities, unplugged games, music co-creation and a final contest.

Date & Venue: Sat, 5 Feb 2022, 9:00 AM – Sun, 6 Feb 2022, 4:30 PM CET. Université Côte d'Azur, 24 Avenue des Diables Bleus, Espace Vernassa, 06300 Nice View Map

Spanish workshop on creative programming activities with ARGET - Feb-March 2022

The ARGET research group is inviting you to participate in the Let's STEAM training for Spanish and Catalan speakers. Throughout two Saturday mornings, participants will be invited to develop their coding skills with programming boards and design projects to promote STEAM education from a creative and problem-solving approach. No prior knowledge is required, only curious people who are willing to try and implement STEAM activities in their secondary school classrooms. This training is an opportunity not only to delve into what is STEM education and how can be promoted through computational thinking but also to reflect on how can our activities can be more ethically and equitable designed, especially from a gender perspective. The training will be organized by the ARGET research group.

IAN Network training in cooperation with Aix-Marseille Université - 28th of January 2022

The French Digital Education Directorate (DNE) relies on 33 teachers (subject experts - IAN) to run a network of more than 450 teachers, who are the contact persons for the secondary level (13 academic networks, 17 subjects or courses represented). The experts work closely with the Inspectorate General. The IANs contribute to the implementation of the national strategy for the development of the use of digital education in their subject areas. The IANs publicise digital educational resources (Éduthèque, banks of digital educational resources, etc.), accompanying content (Édubase, ÉduNum letters, etc.) and projects developed at the national level by the DNE. They are involved in academic events on digital education. They identify practices in their academy, in their discipline. They coordinate and accompany the publication of scenarios to report on the academic space. With the collaboration of the IAN Network, AMU will invite leading technology teachers from all around France to participate in a Let's STEAM training on the 28th of January. The first day of training will be made virtually and the second day will be organized physically at the end of May.

Date & venue: January 28 2022 and end of May 2022
