Make World is an international project which provides the methodology and tools to teach STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The project is intended for teachers and students of elementary schools.
The following educational institutions are taking part in the project: University of Deusto (Spain), Computer Technology Institute & Press "Diophantus" (Greece) and three elementary schools: Ekpaideutiria Douka, Fundacion Educativa ACI Esclavas SC - Fatima and Warsaw Bilingual School Dwujęzyczna Szkoła Podstawowa.
Evaluation of knowledge and attitude of teachers and students toward STEM subjects,
Designing and defining the methodology to teach STEM, based on a platform that is focused on scripts/stories, technical thinking and personalized education,
Development of an open, free platform, which will promote the connection between STEM subjects and technical thinking,
Creating tasks with different levels of user involvement (the basic material base will be open and available to everyone),
Determining the influence of the project on teaching STEM subjects and the evaluation of the method, platform and created materials.
Make World platform
The platform integrates modules used for creating and using educational resources in the classroom. It allows the creation and display of characters, worlds and stories which use elements of programming and at the same time refer to the contents of the national curriculum of science and mathematics.
Educational materials are prepared for classroom use. They will contain methodological tips for teachers and technical issues related to the use of the platform’s resources. These materials will be translated to all the languages used in the project- English, Basque, Spanish, Polish and Greek.
The guidebook is intended for teachers and parents, showing them the opportunities of using the tools and resources prepared in the project.
