Join the conversation into remote teaching strategies at STEM Community

STEM learning


Online and remote teaching has become the temporary norm, with teachers using a blend of synchronous and asynchronous teaching techniques in order to vary students’ diet of learning. In the STEM Community there have been some fascinating discussions and examples of teachers sharing their approaches to delivering remote learning - it’s been fantastic to see evidence of teachers trying new techniques in their delivery, and feeding back on their success to fellow members. Examples include:

"Padlet is great for harvesting answers from students - eg I have used it to collect results of online practicals or run online discussions”  

“Turn your phone into a visualiser using IPEVO software, then use this to login into Zoom on the same account, and you have a very versatile setup smart phone visualiser"

“There is so much out there in terms of virtual experiments, but here is one that was brought to mind today- FlashyScience from the University of Sheffield. Free until August 2021”

“My go to resources, which are fabulous and so easy to use, are whiteboard.fi (this is so easy to use and set up instantly - doesn't even require a login). It replicates mini whiteboards in the classroom so great for assessment

"Nearpod ensures that pupils engage and you can see straight away who hasn't. I also love it because, where I live, the electricity isn't very stable and neither is the internet connection, so if I have a day where I can't be on the computer, the pupils can access NearPod, do the work, and I can see who engaged

So join the conversation with colleagues across the country - and take away some new teaching strategies today.

We’d like to thank our STEM Community members Jenny Barrowcliff, Claire Ruthven, Alison Ackroyd and Chris Catto for sharing these ideas.
