Enhancing Teaching and Learning in STEM

This session will demonstrate, as part of an interactive workshop, the use of gamification and stop-motion in the teaching of complex scientific content. Participants will participate in a 'Blind Kahoot' and learn how designing games for their students can enable teaching of new subjects. They will use Stopmotion Studio HD on the iPads to see how creating animations can creatively enhance teaching and learning of scientific processes.
