The first action, led by University of Helsinki concerns the development, implementation and revision of innovative teaching activities and materials aimed to develop inter-multi-transdisciplinary, linguistic/argumentative, imaginative thinking and future-scaffolding skills, to impact on young people engagement with future-oriented and science-related activities. The elaboration of the research-based “Model for science education for the society of acceleration and uncertainty” will have the form of guidelines articulated in three main sections:
(a) theoretical and pedagogical framework of the approach to science education;
(b) list of design and implementation principles aimed to operationalize the theoretical and pedagogical approaches into practical recommendations;
(c) case studies or examples taken from the implementations. The Model will be progressively fleshed out from the two rounds of implementation. WP4 is organized along three main stages, in accordance with the iterative nature of Design-Based Research methodology: materials’ design, first round implementation, phenomenological analysis of the outcomes, re- design, second round implementation and, again, fine-grained analysis of the outcomes.
The objectives of WP4 are:
The deliverables under this Work Package are the following:
