Exploring STEM through the Victorian Curriculum F-10
In this session for secondary school teachers, participants will explore the meaning of STEM education as it relates to the Victorian Curriculum areas of Science, Design and Technologies and Mathematics. Teachers will sample a typical STEM activity and identify the curriculum achievement standards that may be addressed through this activity. Teachers will learn about the considerations required to implement a STEM unit in a secondary school, including how to use curriculum materials to identify appropriate outcomes to address through a STEM unit; how to use constraints within a unit to ensure students meet these achievement standards; how to assess STEM units in line with existing reporting structures; and how to work around timetable and other constraints that secondary schools typically deal with. Three units will be presented as examples that are currently run across a Victorian secondary school, and their relationship to the design considerations will be discussed. Teachers will have the opportunity to design their own assessment rubric for the sample STEM activity encountered earlier in the day and will have an opportunity to design their own STEM units with the support of the facilitator.
*Participants may wish to bring their laptop, USB drive and appropriate course documentation / mapping tools used in their school.
