The duration of the full module is ca. 20 teaching hours, but it consists of distinct activities which can also be applied individually to teach separately about […]
The I SEE partnership develops modules for teaching and learning in the upper secondary school (ages 16-19). The modules represent the shift in perspective on STEM education towards inclusive, future-oriented pedagogy that addresses the pressing needs of science and society.
The first I SEE module addresses climate change, and will be implemented in the summer school in Bologna, Italy, with Italian, Icelandic and Finnish teachers and students. During the academic year 2017-2018, three more modules will be developed. Their topics cover a variety of societally significant and cross-cutting fields of science and technology which are likely to be important in students’ future, both at the personal, vocational and societal level. All module materials will be posted on this page.
The pedagogical approach in the modules is based on notions of action competence and exposure. The action competence approach is characterised by democratic processes in the classroom that support taking intentional decisions and actions for learning that in turn further develop students’ consciousness as participants in society. Exposure is the notion that an individual’s life course is heavily influenced by surroundings and to be able to choose an alternative future, one has to be exposed to it.
The I SEE partnership will also organize teacher professional development events in Finland, Iceland, Italy and the United Kingdom. To promote the diffusion of the future-scaffolding skills in science classrooms, I SEE will also produce a guide for developing further modules on other topics.
