Third cycle of the E-STEM Academy came to an end
Educational methodologies, technological applications, project design within the E-STEM educational approach (Ethics, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) were some of the workshops received by teachers belonging to the third cycle of the FIDAL E-STEM Academy.
After 20 days of class, Claudia Arteaga, executive director of FIDAL, closed this cycle of training on September 11. He stressed that, despite the difficulties of the pandemic, there have been opportunities thanks to technology, which allow the use and management of various platforms that contribute to the profession. He also appreciated the support provided to the teacher training program by both the Pan American Developmente Foundation (PADF) and Boeing.
The trainer for this third stage of the Academy was Andrés Hermann, university professor and specialist in technology applied to education, who led the teachers in the consolidation of 11 group projects:
Application of science in cosmetology with natural products.
Food preservation through dehydration processes.
Discovering my body by building robotic prototypes with recycled material.
Teaching math with Scratch.
Influence of gamification in the construction of electronic circuits.
MINECRAF a platform to learn mathematics creatively at home.
Programming with Blockly.
EMRA: Teaching Mathematics with Augmented Reality.
Sanitary automation through the implementation of dispensers.
Food chemistry applied to the manufacture of facial masks.
Contribution of ICTs to self-employment.
