To support teachers using Planeteers, we’ve created two professional development courses to upskill, inspire and motivate teachers who seek to develop their game-based learning and STEAM teaching skills. Designed by educational trainers and experts, our courses integrate STEAM, inquiry, project-based learning, and maker methodologies to help up skill educators to maximize the benefits of using Planeteers in their classroom. The first course is also great for educators wishing to incorporate any or all of these teaching pedagogies using unplugged or other resources.
The first course, Full STEAM Ahead in the Classroom focuses on introducing STEAM as a mix of teaching methodologies and building teacher knowhow and skills in delivering STEAM in their classrooms using various learning modalities.
The second course, Game-based Learning with Planeteers is aimed at teachers wishing to integrate sandbox game-based learning into the mix, including the concept of virtual maker labs using Planeteers as a primary or secondary resource for teaching STEAM skills and identities including coding and robotics.
