Learn STEM – The Pedagogical Model

Learn STEM is the Pedagogical Model for Innovative STEM Learning and Teaching. It comprises a general framework for improving learning and teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in secondary schools. It has been developed by nine partners from six European countries (The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Lithuania and Portugal), including experts with professional background in the field of teaching STEM, secondary schools, research, vocational education institutions and developers with technical knowledge and expertise.

You can find more information about the Learn STEM Pedagogical Model for Innovative STEM Learning and Teaching and download it here.

Contribute to our Learn STEM Surveys!

The European Alliance Learn STEM wants (1) to develop a Pedagogical Model that supports innovative STEM school education, (2) to define the needs of STEM teachers and (3) to design a Teachers’ Training Programme that will help to meet those needs.

Therefore, Learn STEM has started three surveys for STEM teachers, headmasters and learners.
