DreamSpace Blended Courses Now Enrolling

For Summer 2020, TeachNet in association with Microsoft Education, are delivering two blended courses (Virtual face-to-face & online), ‘DreamSpace Hacking STEM in the Primary Classroom’ and ‘Minecraft for Education‘. Participate in live Microsoft Teams workshops for 3 days followed by 2 days online in your own time and learn how to use exciting tools to enhance learning in the primary classroom.

DreamSpace Hacking STEM in the Primary Classroom
Bring STEM into your classroom by attending the first DreamSpace teacher summer school to explore how teachers can create inquiry and project-based activities focused on STEM (and STEAM) that can be used across the primary curriculum. Using a wide range of digital tools and maker activities, participants will explore ways they can change their own practice to better support STEM learning. Hands-on activities include coding and Maker Space challenges using MakeCode, Micro:Bit and Arcade, with content provided to all participants through Microsoft Teams and OneNote. After this, you can bring a bit of DreamSpace back to your classroom for next year.
