Why is ‘Energy the Elephant in the Room?’
Speakers: Franklin Neyt, Hans-Martin Hilbig, Markku Parkkonen, Cathy Baars and Harald Herzig

This is the fourth and final quarterly online Sharing Inspiration Conference of 2021. The expression ‘the elephant in the room’ implies that energy is a big important topic which makes people uncomfortable when discussing it. Everybody knows about it, but the issues are politically and socially sensitive. How can people overlook something as big as an elephant when it is in the same room as you? This session will look at ways in which we might teach about energy use and attempt to stimulate those discussions which are so difficult.

Computational Thinking and Coding in the Classroom
Speakers: Ramon Moorlag, Cathy Baars, Alexandre Gomes, Tonguç Özdaş, Uğur Mert, Yunus Emre Doğan

This is the third quarterly online Sharing Inspiration conference of 2021. Computational thinking and coding have already penetrated the curricula in the schools of most countries, but they may not yet be mainstream. Should these topics have the same priorities as language or science and mathematics? Could computational thinking be the vehicle for delivering 'thinking skills' in the classroom? What motivates young people to write a program?

STEM Education for a Sustainable World
Speakers: Peter Balyta, Dr. Vladimir Garkov, Christine Buerki, Alexandre Gomes, Hans-Martin Hilbig & Veit Berger and Cathy Baars

This is the second quarterly online Sharing Inspiration conference of 2021. No doubt, education for a purpose beyond exams is more motivating for students than traditional teaching methods. Students are concerned equally about the future of our planet, of our society and our economy. Education for Sustainable Development is just about that.

This Sharing Inspiration conference aims to share activities and concepts which have been designed to bring Education for Sustainability in every Math, Science or STEM classroom. On top we will learn about the European Green Deal Agenda and its implications for the European Education Area.

The Herrnhuter Star
Speakers: Frank Liebner, Hubert Langlotz, Christian Zöpfl

We think, no, we know that many of you know the Christmas star from Herrnhut.

Every year at Christmas time, hundreds of these adorn the small town of Herrnhut and many other houses around the world. The first star was created by a Math teacher at the beginning of the 19th century.

In the webinar we´ll give you some information about the star and we would like to show you a few mathematical tasks around the star by using TI-NspireTM. At the end of the webinar you´ll get a small task and with some luck you can win an original Herrnhuter Star.

Finnish digital final exam and widgets for drawing
Speakers: Markku Parkkonen; Olli Karkkulainen

Finland has moved to digital final exams in upper secondary schools. Drawings in math and science that were earlier done by paper and pen, can now be done with TI-Nspire Widgets. Participants will get short hands on introductions how these tools are used in math, physics and chemistry.

There is Music in STEM
Speakers: Frank van den Berg; Ludovic Wallaart

The participants will experience the implementation of a STEM-project in the classroom. Computational thinking will be stimulated by coding music that can be listened to through our own build speaker. This project connects electronics, the math behind music, programming and related science topics. Programming will be done in TI-Basic, but can be done in Python as well. A sample program will be shared with the participants.

Why you should absolutely teach your student to code in Python (Episode 1)
Speakers: Abir Marina
Find out how Python became one of the worlds’ most popular programming languages throughout the history of this language and his father: Guido Van Rossum.

Discover the French curriculum: in France, while algorithms have been an integrated part of the school curriculum since 2010, it has taken a decade for Python, a very powerful and intuitive language, to become the mandatory coding language for teaching for all students in High schools. Learn some simple examples of how Python can be used in math.

Sustainability in STEM education - a new content project
Speakers: Ian Galloway; Christine Buerki; Stephan Griebel
When you hear the "Sustainability" very likely you think about climate change first. When you think a bit further on you realize that there must be more. Indeed, already in 2016 the United Nations defined 17 Sustainability Development Goals (SDG), committed to implement these by 2030.

In this new content project we as T³ Europe aim to develop teaching and learning materials which advance students awareness for the UN SDGs and how STEM can help to find solutions for these grand challenges.!

It's a Sticking Point
Speakers: Ian Galloway

So, you thought you knew all about frictional forces? Never heard of Amontons’ Laws? Every high school physics teacher teaches the first law but tends to forget the second. All of us use the laws every day, almost every waking minute of our lives. Hardly anybody understands them! They are the two laws of friction, the first about applied load and the second, now largely forgotten, about the area of contact.

This workshop will guide you through a logical approach to understanding both laws and lead you to an appreciation of why Jeremy Clarkson is so wrong about the stopping distances of cars. Is weight really thrown forwards when a car stops? Of course not, but then what exactly is going on when a car stops or starts? Using the TI Rover and the Vernier force probe you will learn why some car manufacturers still use rear wheel drives…it’s all about friction!
