What is Digi-Science?

You are here

During the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has made the need for effective digital education readiness more prominent and necessary than ever. Within a few weeks, there was an immediate demand for teachers to be able to deliver high-quality online/distance learning, support learners in multiple settings and on multiple levels. However, many schools around the globe were caught off guard and were unable to deliver high-quality online/distance learning and support to their students. As the first few months of the pandemic have gone by, and schools are starting to re-open, it is more important than ever, to look back, reflect on how have educational systems responded to this disruption, identify the major challenges that led some schools to underperform, and ultimately find ways to prepare for future similar challenges by equipping teachers and school communities with the necessary digital skills, tools and resources. The lessons learned during that first period of the pandemic can help schools not only prepare for a potential follow-up, pandemic-related crisis and lockdown situations but also take advantage of what has happened to establish a new school reality in which the use of digital technologies are no longer an emergency last resort but a mainstreamed practice harmonically integrated in the current learning processes. Digi-Science addresses the challenges mentioned above by preparing teachers to deliver effective science education courses to their students, within online/distance and blended settings, mainly through online experimentation and the use of virtual and remote science labs integrated within a concrete educational framework that is designed to foster the development of students’ skills while addressing equity, diversity and inclusion challenges.
More particularly, the Digi-Science’s objective is to cover the needs of students and teachers mentioned above focusing on:

1. Equipping teachers with the necessary skills, methodology, tools and resources for adapting to online/distance learning and offering high-quality learning experiences to their
students within these settings;

2. Offering open source high-quality, ICT-rich activities – particularly using online virtual and remote labs for science experimentation – and resources apt for direct use in the science classroom, designed based on an  educational approach that fosters the development of students’ digital skills, provides motivation and improves learning outcomes during
online/distance and blended learning contexts;

3. Offering a framework that blends harmonically face-to-face with online/distance learning including options for synchronous and asynchronous learning in formal/non-formal settings;

4. Enabling teachers to address equity, diversity and inclusion challenges in online/distance and blended learning settings.

In order to achieve these objectives the project will produce i) the Digi-Science Teachers' Online Workroom - a digital infrastructure for teachers through which they will have access to a dedicated educational framework, resources and materials for the effective use of ICT tools and for setting up an inclusive teaching learning environment to implement online, blended and distance learning, ii) a set of 20 ICT-rich science activities for primary and secondary education that focus on online science experimentation, iii) a set of 20 short-videos including demonstrations, guidelines and examples to support the implementation of online experimentation and iv) a Self-Assessment Tool for teachers and students focusing on the development of their digital competences, particularly the collaborative dimension.
