教育局校本支援計劃

利用自主學習作為高小及中學階段實踐STEM教育的策略(2017-2019

  

   

A University-School Support Programme

Promoting STEM education at the upper primary and secondary levels by using self-directed learning as a strategy

這是一個由教育局撥款資助的項目,主要透過校本支援,加強中小學的領導層和老師在STEM教育的角色,以發展學生的潛能。對學校領導層而言,重點是培養學校領導人才,推動綜合式STEM教育的發展,增進校內各STEM學科及老師之間的協作,建立電子學習平臺,以促進學生自主學習。在教師層面,則讓老師掌握相關專業知識,設計與正規或非正規課程相融合的STEM綜合教學活動,並懂得引導學生學習及應用STEM的相關知識及技能,以及評估學生的學習所得。最後,在學生方面,我們會引入自主及問題為本學習,增強學生對學習STEM學科的動機和自信心,並培養他們綜合運用多元知識及技能的能力,以解決現實生活上的各種問題。

本項目的專責小組會從多個方向,支援學校推動STEM校本發展,包括瞭解學校對發展STEM教育的需求及願景,提供教師專業發展機會,協調不同學科老師進行STEM課程及活動設計、共同備課、觀課、課後交流等。此外,亦會幫助學校領導層建立STEM領導社群,發揮互相支持,互相交流的作用,並於項目完成後組織學校聯繫網絡,進一步促進學校之間在STEM教育上的持續合作和發展。

 


 

This is an EDB-funded project aimed at strengthening the role of leaders and teachers from primary and secondary schools in promoting STEM education as well as developing students’ potential through school-based support. For the school leaders, the focus is to foster school leadership, promote the development of integrative STEM education, enhance the collaboration among teachers from different STEM subjects and establish e-learning platforms so as to encourage students to learn in a self-directed way. At the teachers’ level, the project will enable teachers to master relevant professional knowledge, design comprehensive STEM teaching activities that integrate formal and non-formal curricula, guide students to learn and apply STEM related knowledge and techniques and assess students’ learning outcomes. At last, for students, we will introduce self-directed learning and problem-based learning to raise their motivation and confidence in learning STEM subjects and foster their ability to interactively apply different knowledge and skills to solve problems in their daily lives.

Our team will provide support to participating schools in developing school-based STEM education in different ways, including understanding the schools’ needs and visions regarding the promotion of STEM education, providing professional development opportunities for teachers from different subjects to collaborate in designing STEM curriculum and activities, conduct peer class observation and share their teaching experiences. Moreover, we will also help school leaders to form STEM leader community in which they can support and communicate with each other. A school network will also be established after the completion of the project, promoting continual collaboration and sustainable development of STEM education among the schools.
