Stem Training For Teachers To Simplify Maths, Science Learning For School Kids | Madurai News


Madurai: With many students struggling to learn maths and science subjects at middle and high school levels, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) training is set to be provided for teachers in a phased manner to help them follow a teaching method through which such complex concepts could be shared to students through simple methods.
According to a school education department official, more interest could be developed in students in maths and science, and also inculcate interest in research by strengthening the teaching of STEM subjects. “The training is expected to help teachers come up with interactive activities that are more practical when teaching STEM concepts so that children can learn basic concepts well from a young age. Concepts in maths and science taught from Classes VI to X are often the foundation for higher studies,” added a teacher.
A district-level meeting was conducted last week in Madurai to discuss handling STEM subjects for different classes. A total of 43 BT assistants (Graduate teachers), who teach at government middle, high and higher secondary schools, took part in the preliminary meeting for STEM training on July 23. The teachers were divided into seven groups and a detailed discussion was held on simplifying concepts in STEM subjects. The discussion was facilitated by teacher educators from the District Institute of Education and Training, Madurai. Meanwhile, the training programme is being continued in a phased manner for ‘Ennum Ezhuthum’ mission, which aims to ensure basic literacy and numerical skills for children aged below eight years.
