Student Competences as Outputs of Research-based Education

This project has been funded with support from the European Commission. This publication reflects the views only of the author, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.

It is planned to develop five Maths and Science Research ICT based Modules (RIM) for Lower Secondary students. In developing teaching materials the paradigm of the bite-sized eLearning is followed in order to build the RIM modules according the following procedure:

  • The smallest nuggets are mainly interactive animations which will be built open source tools, as general developer tools: HTML5 & JavaScript, or specific tools as H5P (https://h5p.org/) . These animations can run on mobile devices and are pedagogically-based in such a way that as result of its interactivity students get feedback on its performance.
  • Animations and other content are embedded in the own school LMS (Moodle or other) aimed at a Learning Outcome. Student performance can be monitored using the LMS built-in statistics system or by any other Learning Analytics Tool.
  • Several activities will compound a learning unit that could be aggregated in a RIM module that may contain several units covering some part of the curricula.
