SCIENTIFIC TALKS. “KNOW to CHOOSE”
Professionals from different scientific fields visit students to talk about real problems and possible solutions. Usually they propose different situations for students to solve during the session.
- Period of implementation: 10 Hours
- Country where the practice was developed : Spain
- Provider of the practice : Politeknika Ikastegia Txorierri - Derio
- Targetg group: 16-17 y.o. students 4-5 EQF level

In the second part of the session, the practitioner poses a real problem for the students to solve. It is proposed once every two months
Main learning outcomes from the practice :
Identify, pose and solve problems, carry out small investigations (individually or in groups), use the strategies of this science with autonomy, and become aware that scientific work is carried out through experimentation and creativity.
Needed/Suggested digital tools:
- - Google drive
- The practice was carried: : Hybrid online/classroom
Critical points to shift towards STEM learning and solutions:
Usually teachers feel more comfortable when every activity can be controlled, when there is only one correct answer. This point can managed just with confidence
Positive aspects of participatory learning :
To get a close look at real problems, which generate more motivation, better learning.
Negative aspects of participatory learning:
Some students get lost and can not motivate if the group is too large
