‘Incentivising Innovation through Technology’ project

CCEA are keen to promote innovative uses of ICT to enhance learning in classrooms and to share these examples of good practice in relation to STEM. In order to do this we want to work with interested teachers from any area across the Key Stage 3 curriculum that recognise the importance of ICT as a tool for engaging and enhancing learning experiences. The project runs from October 2014 - March 2015.

Why get involved?

Teachers will:

  • Gain a greater insight into the use of ICT and how it can help to address local STEM issues
  • Participate in professional dialogue with other teachers and Industry
  • Take part in a bespoke STEM/Using ICT workshop to identify and develop relevant opportunities in their subject
  • Receive dedicated mentoring support for the duration of the project
  • Have up to six days substitute cover to support participation in the programme
  • Take part in capturing the processes and benefits of Using ICT in their subject for research purposes

CCEA will also provide up to £500 worth of ICT equipment (hardware/software as identified by your school) to assist in the project.

What is involved?

Teachers will:

  • Attend a 1-day briefing workshop on Thursday 2 October 2014
  • Use CCEA resources to support the delivery of an enquiry based approach through the use of ICT
  • Share school experiences with CCEA for the purpose of research and the production of sharing good practice resources
  • Meet with other project members to share and talk about the work of their pupils
  • Exhibit pupils work through a range of ‘Celebrating STEM’ opportunities
  • If you think this is something that you would be interested in, then all they have to do is complete this online registration form by Thursday 11 September 2014.

Places are limited and will be allocated to provide a spread of school types, subjects and ICT uses.
