Herts for Learning Online
:: Working up a STEAM conference ::
Outline
Our one-day summer conference celebrates cross-curricular learning by looking at how science, technology, engineering, the arts, maths and languages can be brought together in a broad and balanced curriculum. Our keynote speaker will discuss the benefits of genuine link learning with an exciting example of using drama and play scripts to inspire scientific enquiry. This will be followed by sessions on the work of strategic learning networks in Hertfordshire, case-studies from some of our schools and a range of hands-on workshops.
Outcomes:
The aims of the conference are to:
  • promote spontaneity in speaking and writing through the use of high-frequency transferable structures across a range of subjects to develop student repertoire
  • explore the value of languages as a medium for academic and professional learning
  • explore the use of games to support scientific understanding and the use of language
  • consider how to use science as a context for engaging art, extended writing and mathematical investigations
  • review how drama can be used to promote science enquiry
Suitable for:
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Middle Leaders
