Join IBSE resources

One of the aims of Pri-Sci-Net is that of supporting networking among primary teachers. One way to promote achieving this is through a virtual platform which allows teachers to download resources, comment on resources found, as well as upload their own activities. The Pri-Sci-Net platform provides an easy-to-use space where teachers can network and follow each others work.

Overall objective of Pri-Sci-Net


Pri-Sci-Net is about promoting Inquiry-based learning in science at primary level of education through developing activities for teachers to use as well as setting up a Europe-wide network for professionals and academics in the area of Primary Science Education. The aim is to provide training and professional support to teachers to help them use Inquiry based learning in Science in schools. A virtual platform set up at European level will network professionals as well as support the organisation of training courses.The project will also recognise teachers’ and researchers’ achievements in implementing Inquiry-based learning in science at primary level, as well as provide an opportunity for teachers and academics across Europe to share their experiences and successes.

The Specific Project Aims and objectives are to:

  • Create a network for primary science education researchers and teacher-trainers, as well as practising teachers;
  • Utilise the network to promote professional development of teachers through training material, sharing of experiences, educational resources as well as recognising achievement of primary school teachers and researchers in the area of Primary Science;
  • Identify successful examples of application of IBSE and build further educational resources in primary science education for use by primary teachers;
  • Provide resources in primary science for free and in a range of languages online and distributed through the teachers’ network;
  • Organise in-service training sessions on a national level in the partner countries, with financial support to selected numbers of network members;
  • Organise three international professional development courses for primary science teacher-trainers and researchers;
  • Organise two international primary science conferences aimed at researchers, teacher –trainers and practising teachers;
  • Recognise the achievements of teachers, researchers and trainers through Recognition for Excellence in IBSE Certificate which will be presented at the International conferences each year. This recognition will not be monetary in nature but will involve certification by the project consortium (those receiving recognition will only be given travel and subsistence to attend conference to receive Certificate); and
  • Evaluating all activities and initiatives through external and internal evaluation methods

connect

Learning science is about making connections, about natural phenomena, how they work, and the explanations which scientists have developed. When inquiring about scientific phenomena, one needs to make connections between observations made and explanations for these observations.

Children should be encouraged to build connections between their observations and their ideas in order to help them draw conclusions with respect to what they set out to investigate. Connections are best constructed within a social context, as children explore and argue in favour or against possible explanations for their observations with peers. Connecting ideas to observation is an essential process when doing and learning science. Learning to make connections from a very young age will promote a better engagement with science.
