ABOUT THE COURSE

Exploration and pioneering have inspired and shaped civilizations since the dawn of history. Such endeavours are distinguishing characteristics of an advancing civilization. As people explore, they discover, innovate, prosper, lead— and become great. In the Stories of Tomorrow project and in this course, we have selected as the main topic a major challenge for the humankind: The journey to Mars. Space missions, both robotic and human, expand the knowledge of our planet, our solar system, and the universe, leading to the expansion of humankind itself from the Earth to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.

The Stories of Tomorrow Summer School is specifically designed for teaching professionals in STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). It will introduce teachers to the concept of digital storytelling as well as inquiry-based science teaching techniques in order to develop, improve and enhance their teaching skills and practices. The overall goal of the course is twofold:

  • to acquaint participants with the significance and opportunities of storytelling using the Stories of Tomorrow digital storytelling platform;
  • to enable teachers to successfully use, develop and support the creation of students’ stories using innovative, ICT based tools and techniques that will help students use their creativity to learn about science topics related to space exploration.

The Stories of Tomorrow Summer School is designed to be highly engaging, creative and interactive. Participating teachers will work in small groups and thus be able to collaborate with teachers from other countries, discuss ideas and exchange experiences in order to create a group activity which will encompass all the features of a successful storytelling multidisciplinary science activity.

The course will last for 6 days, consisting in total of ca. 25 hours of workshop based training, such as presentations followed by hands-on sessions (9 hours of lectures and demonstrations, 16 hours of hands-on workshops). The lectures and the demonstrations of the training course will be held in an auditorium equipped with a data projector and a laptop, whereas, the workshops will be held in a multimedia laboratory where each participant will have direct access to a PC with internet connection and will carry out planned exercises.

Before coming to the summer school, participants will be asked to prepare a small, space-related activity. This activity will be the starting point of their work during the summer school. It will be discussed in detail during the course and it will be further developed.
In order to assess whether, and to what extent, the course has reached its objectives and expected results the 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.
