The I SEE concept of “future-scaffolding skills” is designed to contribute to fostering comprehensive growth of students as positively engaged persons, citizens and future professionals. In spite of many improvements, schools are still quite isolated and school science may seem irrelevant from other parts of society. The “skills gap” between the competences gained in school and the skills needed by the labour market has been widely reported as an area of concern.
The I SEE partnership will publish recommendations targeted at educational administrations and institutions. The recommendations will be the result of a meta-analysis of the implementations carried out during the project and will be prepared in order to contribute to:
- making science teaching relevant from a scientific, professional, social and personal point of view and effective for supporting students to “see” their future and to be adequately prepared to engage positively with it;
- enhancing the capacity of schools, universities, educational centres, NGOs and entrepreneurs to create local, regional and national forms of collaboration aimed at: (i) influencing how science is taught in schools, (ii) fostering students’ capacity to aspire and to imagine their future, and (iii) attracting, orienting and preparing students for future STEM careers, adhering to the values embedded in RRI.
