Is it possible to build a computer on your own and have your students done it already? Can the computer be seized by mouse only and what would happen if you could plug in a carrot to a computer? Why new technologies are necessary in school and how to make new technologies help you do your work? How to effectively use digital tools during the lessons? We were looking for answers to these and other questions during the second edition of the “EduIt Conference. New Technologies in Education” which took place on December 10, 2015.
A real planetarium, scientific demonstrations, programming and robotic workshops, experimental zones, IT trade shows are just some of the highlights of the National Conference “EduIt. New technologies in Education” which ended on December 10.
During the second edition of the conference nearly 500 participants – including educatiors, teachers, pedagogues, science popularizers, bloggers, innovators and initiators of open learning acitivies, actively participated in 30 various workshops.
The leading topics of the second edition of the conference were experimental science and education based on the idea of STEAM (Science + Technology in Engineering + based on Mathematics) and also digital and programming skills of student and teachers.
Those who like to investigate, measure and experience different things had plenty activities to choose from. In created specifically for this occasion Grand Bazaar every participant had the chance to feel like being a child for a moment while creating their own weather station or current generator out of cucumbers. For the most inquisitive participants there were, among other things, mathematical puzzles, a virtual tour of the interior of the Planetarium of the Lódź Science and Technology Centre EC1. The demonstrations and micro-workshops were led by experts from Polish science centres. The real treat was the intergalactic adventure – a genuine mobile planetarium.
