Engaging Reluctant Learners Through Real-life Problems REPEATED (404)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Presenting STEM learning within the context of engaging, real life problems gives children a sense of the purpose and direction of their learning, consequently improving their motivation and perseverance when tackling tricky topics.
As former primary school teachers, we understand the challenges faced by the profession and we have designed our resources with three main goals in mind: to save teachers time and reduce workload; to spark learners’ passion and enthusiasm for STEM subjects and to convey important messages about food and nutrition through a cross-curricular, project-based  approach.
In this session, we will guide you through the NFU’s new cross-curricular project-based educational resources that use real life problems faced by the nation’s farmers and business owners as engaging contexts for learning.
Expect a session of ideas for exciting practical activities and projects and a free scheme of teaching and learning resources that will allow you to infuse your wider curriculum with engaging STEM learning opportunities.
