Description

G4E (Geeks for Education) encourages collaboration and synergies between school education, industry and non-formal learning settings. G4E intends to support educators coming from organizations to become proficient teachers/trainers and to use digital technologies and STEM in collaborative, creative, attractive and effective ways, also equipping them with methods and tools to transfer know-how to different learners in an inclusive way.

The objectives of the project are:

  1. to capitalize on existing practice where non-formal and innovative education provided by tech hubs and organizations becomes added value for inclusive, more attractive and effective STEM and digital education in and with schools
  2. to define an innovative cross-disciplinary and inclusive pedagogical methodology for STEM teachers, entrepreneurs and non-formal educators
  3. to test and streamline the methods through cross-disciplinary, inquiry-based learning, experiential and connected learning
  4. to disseminate and promote the G4E tools and methods by making them accessible through blended and OER platforms
