Name of the TIG:
Science and Technology in the Digital Era
Aims and vision of the TIG:
The vision of the Science and Technology in the Digital Era, Thematic Interest Group (STDE – TIG) is to discuss the teaching and learning of science and technology and integrating digital competencies.
Depending on the country, the subjects, science and technology can be separated or connected with each other. The teaching of these subjects has both practical and theoretical elements. Practical elements include developing technical solutions, using digital tools or exploring nature. Theoretical elements include descriptions and explanation of events and understanding situations related to science and technology.
Despite some differences between the subjects a common objective seems to be literacy: scientific, technological and/or digital literacy. Therefore, it should be of major importance that the knowledge students acquires will prepare them for understanding, managing and evaluating science as well as all types of technology and the impacts on society.
