Motivating EU students to choosing STEM studies & careers and improving their performance in courses related to STEM education
EL-STEM aims at fostering an innovation “ecosystem” in European secondary schools (ages 12-18) that can facilitate more effective and efficient user-centric design and use of AR/MR resources for personalised STEM learning and teaching. The project will develop, pilot test, and implement an innovative professional development program that will familiarize teachers with the potential of AR technology for enhancing instructional practices and students’ motivation and learning processes in secondary STEM education. Teachers will be acquainted with ways in which they could employ AR (but also VR/MR) to promote students’ engagement in STEM education and to strengthen their 21st century skills.
