Digi-Science 2022

3-8 July 2022

The Digi-Science summer school aims to equip science teachers with the digital competences, tools and resources needed to confidently implement student-centred and collaborative learning experiences in new situations like online/distance and blended learning. The course will help participants create a common understanding of how science teachers can make distance, online and blended learning effective, inclusive and engaging. During our course participants will be introduced to

  • an innovative student-centred pedagogy
  • a collection of materials, ICT-tools and educations platforms for online and blended learning
  • ready-to-be used activities as well as material that will provide them with opportunities to upgrade their teaching style and strengthen their professional profile.
  • Training materials to develop their digital skills and enable them to start making their own educational videos.

The Digi-Science summer school will focus on introducing to participants innovative ICT-tools and educational pedagogies that will enable them to perform student-centred activities in face-to-face and online learning settings. Its main objective is to introduce to teachers ways to develop their and their students digital and 21st century skills while engaging them in high-performance learning experiences.  The summer school will focus on:

– introducing a cutting-edge pedagogical approach that focuses on student-centred learning for science education while also embedding the principles of the Universal Design for Learning approach that allows teachers to design diverse activities that meet the needs of students with different learning profiles.

– introducing ICT-tools and educational platforms that can facilitate the teachers to deliver high-quality lessons in face-to-face and online learning settings.

– offering open educational resources that not only promote a student-centred approach within ICT-rich environments but also foster hybrid models of teaching that use both physical and

– empowering teachers to develop the needed digital skills to design their own educational videos.

– offering an accompanying training package for teachers to develop their digital and technology competences and enable them to assume the role expected of them as educators in challenging times like that of the current pandemic;

– introducing a new approach to assess and validate the development of key competences of students and teachers

The objectives of the summer school are:

– Developing digital skills and competences and empower them to deliver high-quality science education to their students using digital online technology

– Get better equipped in up-taking digital technologies and introducing ICT tools effectively into their science class

– Adapt to online/distance and blended learning and making use of synchronous and asynchronous learning to adjust their lessons to the different needs of their students

Use ICT-tools and online technologies and platforms to deliver lessons that keep the interest of the students and actively involve them in collaborative inclusive learning episodes

– Increase the use of ICT tools in hybrid learning environments (blending formal with non-formal and informal education as well as interweaving learning in physical and digital learning environments)

Address equity, diversity and inclusion challenges during online/distance learning

Integrate inclusion and diversity within innovative digital environments of learning (including gender balance, diverse classrooms, addressing differences in relation to the access and use of technology by underrepresented groups).

Design their own innovative and diverse learning activities for their students apt for use in multiple settings (online/distance and hybrid settings).

Design their own education videos for science education

The course will last for 5 days (Sunday to Friday), consisting of 25 hours in total. The Digi-Science Summer School is designed to promote collaboration among teachers and engage them in inspiring interactive hands-on sessions.

Participating teachers will be invited to work in small groups and complete a set of workshops. During the sessions, they will be encouraged discuss ideas and exchange experiences. Through these workshop participating teachers will be introduced to innovative student-centred approaches while they will also get acquainted with ICT-tools and platforms that will allow them to deliver high-quality learning experiences for their students in online and blended learning settings.

Certain sessions of the summer school will be dedicated into analyzing the challenges faced by the participating teachers and on building future collaboration between participants. Finally, special attention will be given to collecting feedback from participants through discussion and reflection activities.

This website will act as a main hub of communication and for sharing and distributing preparatory material with the participants. Participants will have a common workspace for uploading and downloading educational materials.

Participants will have to get acquainted with the training topics as well as the course methodology by accessing the materials and tools which will be available in advance through the website.

Before attending the summer school, participants will be asked to review some materials relative to the topic of the summer school and the methodologies that will be discussed. More specifically, they will need to familiarize themselves with educational materials that will be provided about learning-design and inquiry-based science education;

As a follow-up to the training course, the participants will be asked to make use of the activities they worked on during the summer school and share their work with the community of teachers.

As members of our community of science teachers, participants will be constantly informed about new initiatives they can participate in, as well as new activities they can choose to use. They have access to support provided by the training team, and they will be able to communicate their work and ideas with other science teachers in European countries and beyond, who have a common interest.

In order to assess the impact of the course, participants will have to answer, during and at the end of the course, a set of relevant questionnaires that will be provided by the course providers. The results of the questionnaires/survey or a so-called evaluation report will be available to all participants of the course.

All participants will receive a certificate of participation.

The Summer School will be held at Golden Coast Hotel & Bungalows, an A-class/ 4-star sea-side hotel which stretches on the golden, sandy beach of the Marathon Bay, near the historic location of Marathon, at the outskirts of Athens.

It is the area of Marathon, that has hosted since the times of myths when Theseus killed the terrible bull of Marathon, to the times of the Persian wars and the Battle of Marathon, further on to our days and the marathon race and Marathon Run, the emblematic symbol of man’s quest for freedom and the will to defend his most noble deeds which constitute the foundations of the Human civilization. The plethora of natural, historical sites and museums of the area reveal in all details this unique historical voyage.

Participants are expected to arrive through the Athens International Airport, approximately 25 km (15,53 miles) distance from the hotel.

What is ERASMUS+?

Erasmus+ is the European Commission’s Programme for education, training, youth, and sport for the period 2021-2027. As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for the mobility of learners and staff and cooperation across the education, training, and youth sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules and a structure that aims to streamline the administration of the programme.

Erasmus+ Key Action 1 (KA1) provides a unique opportunity for teachers, headmasters, trainers, and other staff of educational institutions to participate in international training courses in different European countries. Schools, universities, vocational education and training, and adult education organizations are all eligible to receive full funding to attend courses under a KA1 mobility grant. The Erasmus+ KA1 grant covers all the costs to attend teacher training courses: including travel, subsistence, and course fee.

For up-to-date information about Erasmus+ please check the Programme’s website. Your school will need to apply to your country’s National Agency, who is also the one who will evaluate the proposal. Therefore, your National Agency is also a very good point to start for more information.
