From September 9th through September 27th, we are raising funds for a pilot project in Lviv, Ukraine, to modernize the science classroom. Please consider donating!
GlobalGiving Accelerator Campaign (September 9 – 27)
This is a pilot project for innovative faculty at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv and Lviv Polytechnic (Ukraine). The program will feature a workshop to train faculty in the use of new digital and online teaching tools, as well as the principles of active learning. The goal is to help these faculty improve and modernize their science teaching, and create a grassroots approach to modernizing science education in the region.

Even though we are well into the 21st century, our digital science education resources resemble 19th century teaching approaches (lectures, quizzes, readings, discussions) deployed with 20th century tools. We can do so much more with modeling, simulators, and virtual field sites. But just because we can, doesn’t mean we should. Without good observations of the teaching environment and curricular design based on these observations, teams can end up designing expensive materials that aren’t useful in many contexts. What we need is smart digital science teaching.
Science Voices works with teams around the world to develop culturally attuned science learning resources using the principles of good storytelling and game design. We want your voice to come through in your science teaching using the best pedagogy and technology available.
