The fear of teaching STEM
Why STEM education?
Why STEM education?
In recent years technology has changed our way of teaching in class. Jobs today are highly digitized and our students will face an even more complex world.
It is very important that our students begin to acquire this new knowledge at an early age to become tech-native, and our responsibility as teachers is to find ways to transmit these new digital skills in class and that this allows us to grow professionally.
This transformation process must begin as soon as possible, it must occur in primary schools and we, their teachers, are the gravitational center of this great change. Only in this way will we ensure that all students have the same opportunities in the future. It wouldn't be fair to leave a generation behind.
Break the fear
We are aware that educating our students in technology seems like a giant step for which we are not prepared and we feel a certain fear.
To lose this fear and empower ourselves with new STEM skills, three basic ingredients are necessary:
1- A clear curriculum and STEM method.
2- Receive help from an expert.
3- Practice in class and check that we are capable.
At galactIQ, we have been providing STEM education to thousands of children on a weekly basis for over 7 years, and training teachers with no prior technological experience. We understand that technology can be intimidating, but we've witnessed firsthand how quickly teachers can overcome their fears and experience tremendous growth.
Our educational plan mixes programming, digital literacy or robotics with basic educational processes such as language, mathematics, public speaking or teamwork. The galactIQ learning process is simple, can be integrated into the day-to-day of your class, it’s fun, very interesting and its goal is to educate the student while training the teacher.
But perhaps the most important thing is the personal work that our specialists do to help each primary school teacher: we help you prepare the lessons, we follow up on your doubts and the results you get in class. We are always by your side so that you can take off in your new personal STEM development.
How long is a good STEM training?
Even though technology is changing rapidly, at galactIQ we know that the optimal learning period is two years teaching a weekly STEM class.
Once you complete this period you will know much about programming, designing video games, basic engineering media literacy or artificial intelligence. Your skills will be robust enough after this initial training period and they will allow you grow by yourself.
