Project Title: Exploring Different Methods of Science Teaching to Increase Student Motivation and Promote Scientific Literacy
Through this project we hope to motivate students by presenting science as being relevant to their everyday life experiences.
This project will help to encourage students to view science as being useful to all citizens and thus enhance scientific literacy.
Using these innovative teaching strategies will help to increase the number of students who take up science subjects at tertiary level.
This project aims to develop, test and implement innovative approaches and practices in teaching science.
Through research and observation of different syllabi from the different participating countries, one can gain experience in designing better curricula for our country. This could also be done through networking with educational specialists from universities in Malta and other European countries.
Motivating students by presenting science as being relevant to their everyday life experiences is one of the main objectives of this projects.
We aim to encourage students to view science as being useful to all citizens and thus enhance scientific literacy through innovative methodology.
Through the new methodologies in science teaching we aim to increase the number of students who take up science subjects at tertiary level
The number of participants is approximately 40, most of which most are teachers, head of schools and a University lecturer specializing in Science Education
Our intention is to research and study different European curricula in order to find common teaching areas.
Once the topics are established, specific lesson plans will be set up through collaboration and networking with different schools in European countries. The innovative methodologies to be used in these lessons will be discussed between the participating countries and through networking with educational specialists from universities in Malta and the other European countries involved in this project.
Each participating school will devise a lesson plan which later will be conducted in each participating school, this willl be video taped, and afterwards analysed by the teachers and educational specialists involved in this project. Feedback is given and the lesson plan is amended according to the feedback given. Then this lesson is repeated with a different class and it will then be analysed once again. These lessons will be uploaded in a website and any resources used will be available online for dissemination with other teachers.
The long term impact and benefits envisaged after finishing this project is that through innovative teaching methodologies tackled in this project, teachers will start to use these methodologies and students will show increase in motivation, uptake of science options at a higher level and an increase in scientific literacy.
