About LIVE STEM co-learning broadcasts:
Between October 2022 - June 2023, Let's Talk Science will be facilitating LIVE STEM broadcasts to classrooms across Canada. These co-learning broadcasts are embedded professional learning opportunities for educators to learn alongside their students. In addition to supporting reflective teacher practice, the broadcasts also provide post-learning opportunities for educators as a way to extend student learning between broadcasts. All Broadcasts are connected to the Let’s Talk Science Learning Pathways.
During the broadcasts, a Let’s Talk Science facilitator will lead students through, and model for educators, learning strategies and activities designed to introduce and reinforce science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts. There will be broadcasts aimed at a variety of grade levels and will be provided in English and French.
Once registered, all participants will gain access to a supporting course a week before the live broadcast. Included in the course is information on how to join the broadcasts live, a brief overview of the broadcast, a list of the materials required to participate in the activities and post-broadcast support materials. In addition, a link to watch a recording of the broadcast will be made available to watch on-demand where participation in the live broadcast is not possible.
