Resources, strategies, and pedagogical methodologies
for teaching STEAM through the Golden Ratio
The aim of this project is to develop a comprehensive and detailed set of resources, strategies, and pedagogical methodologies for teaching STEAM using the Golden Ratio as a common reference to implement practical activities in the classroom that favor the achievement of key competences:
■ Critical thinking
■ Problem solving
■ Communication and negotiation skill
■ Analytical skills
■ Intercultural skills
We recognize that competencies can be applied in many different contexts and in a variety of combinations, both overlapping and interlocking. Aspects that are essential to one domain will also support competence in another.
Training the innovators of the 21st century
Confidence in the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that connect to the golden ratio in the context of a STEAM learning approach will help stimulate students in line with STEAM goals. The goal is for students to take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process, potentially becoming the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century.
Key competences & the Golden Ratio
The project aims to develop outcomes that support the acquisition of the key competencies outlined above, presenting them in a way that reflects their equal importance, while respecting the most direct connections to each of these competencies through the golden ratio: aspects that are essential to one domain will also support competencies in others.
More engaging and diverse teaching careers
By raising the profile of the STEAM approach through innovative and collaborative work, the project partners aim to make teaching careers more engaging and diverse, opening doors to new and exciting pedagogies where teachers can be confident that they are helping to meet the needs of their students today and in the future.
