Teaching English through STEAM

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) is a new, innovative and broadly recognized method on teaching. Young learners are curious, they want to explore and learn more about the world. This method helps learners create meaning, think creatively and work collaboratively on scientific experiments, 3D mazes and many more. Let’s explore this magic world, together!

Critical Thinking in the EFL: Think to learn

We are all aware of famous proverbs related to thinking, such as 'think before you speak','great minds think alike' or as Descartes put it ' I think; therefore I am'. We are also aware that thinking is essential for learning (Kadel, 2015). However, why do our students have difficulty in thinking critically? Is thinking something that we should teach and if yes how are we going to do it? During this session, we are going to explore the what, how, and why of critical thinking in the EFL class.

“” – Learning to Learn and Learning to Discern in the new produsage ecosystem

Generation Z was born within a globally connected ecosystem with Internet and digital devices at their disposal. Nevertheless, the shift to emergency remote learning due to the pandemic proved that they were neither prepared to learn online nor to discern disinformation in a crisis era. The “” project was a rapid response effort to enhance digital and media literacy skills for teenagers through CLIL in blended learning environments expanding its efficacy on a national level.
