Science on Stage will be part of the third European Education Summit of the European Commission about ‘Digital Education Transformation: Building Resilience in the European Education Area’, on 10 December 2020.
COVID-19 changed the face of education and forced teachers to discover new ways of digital teaching. The 3rd European Education Summit therefore focuses on this topic.
Representing Europe’s biggest network for STEM teachers, Stefanie Schlunk, Chair of Science on Stage Europe, will participate in the high-level panel: “How to face the COVID-19 education challenge and master the digital transition in education”.
Together with Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Nicolas Schmit, European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights, Simona Kustec, Slovenian Minister for Education, Science and Sport and Lina Gálvez Muñoz, Member of the European Parliament (MEP), Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE), she will discuss the possibilities and challenges of the transition to digital learning.
Science on Stage supports teachers in facing these challenges with its virtual activities. In recent months, this initiative has offered webinars and online meetings from teachers for teachers. It allows them to exchange best practice examples and to learn from each other while at home.
Stefanie Schlunk will bring the practical experience from these activities and the direct feedback from teachers into the discussion.
“It is extremely important to have the teachers on board to master the digital transition. Teachers need opportunities for teamwork – especially during COVID-19. Despite all the difficulties, the pandemic is also a chance to push the digital transformation”, so the Chair of Science on Stage Europe, Stefanie Schlunk says.
