STEAM Learning Ecologies
STEAM Learning Ecologies
STE(A)M Learning Ecologies (SLEs) is an EU-funded project (Horizon Europe) developing engaging open schooling-enabled science learning paths for all in learning continuums of formal and informal learning environments that are also focusing on inclusiveness. The project will highlight the necessary conditions for bringing together all, rather than some, of the actors: formal, non-formal and informal education providers, as well as enterprises and the civil society – and giving all actors space and motivation to take initiative and central roles.
What a Learning Ecology is
A Learning Ecology is the physical, social, and cultural context in which learning takes place. Like natural ecosystems, learning ecologies have physical dimensions, which may include easy access to nature, science museums or advanced science programmes and internships. However, we are less used to thinking about the sociocultural dimensions of learning ecologies. Robust science learning ecologies, like their counterparts in nature, are characterised by diversity and local adaptations. A robust science learning ecology contains a variety of programmes, across institutions and places, allowing students different and multiple ways to engage with science in the form of a learning continuum.
