I understand that the University context is slightly different to both secondary and primary schools. However, changes that generally take place in universities somehow do seem to filter down into the school environment. It is an interesting read where some interesting points made on how education will become more accessible to those from low socio-economic settings.
Let us know what you think in the comments below.
When we talk about integrating ICT into Key Learning Areas, maths is generally forgotten or not thought of. I guess it is because we assume maths needs to be done on pen and paper with all working out shown to answer the question. As we know, this is not necessarily the case. ICT can be integrated into maths as much as it is into any other Key Learning Areas. To help slowly change this mindset, below is a list of websites that provide great interactive math games for you to use in your classroom.
Before education got hit by the STEM/STEAM lesson bug, they used to be called good old science experiments. We seem to be getting carried away with the expectation of integrating technology into everything we do in the classroom these days, but STEM lessons are essentially scratching one's curiosity through inquisitive learning and experimentation.
Below you will find to list of great and simple science experiments that have been categorised for both younger and older students. All these experiments use materials that could be found in the home.
