Perhaps your use of STEM Central contexts has raised debate around ethical issues – access to clean water, housing sustainability, energy through renewables? If so, the Speak Up Scotland! initiative might be of interest to you. Free workshops for teachers introduce different forms of debating, so you can encourage learners to explore the ethical and moral considerations around scientific developments. The programme also offers to arrange visits from or online discussions with university and industry STEM Ambassadors.
- Creating a Glow group around your children’s current interests:
- Add a video of them exploring an interest
- Add colourful pictures from the Early Years illustrations page
- Keep parents and carers up to date by creating a blog, they can access it without a Glow password and you can add videos and sound!
Interests this month might include:
Or, why not create a Christmas page? You will have more time to create it and you could have a Glow meet with Santa!
For more inspiration visit ‘Places to Go’ and see some excellent examples from Glow Cookbooks.
If you are unsure or want to discuss what you have created, share your thoughts on our Glow forum and other early years practitioners can give you ideas and use your ideas too!
