How does your garden grow: inspiring STEM classrooms in NSW schools

Implementation of the HPC pedagogical framework for technology enhanced learning continues in various primary and secondary schools in NSW (2015-19), the ACT (2015-16) and Victoria (2016-17).

2016:  Research in five NSW primary schools with 450+ students in 16 teachers classrooms; the study was designed to upper primary school teachers capacity and confidence in STEM using the High Possibility Classrooms framework. Findings from this study are now available.

 2015: Three major projects on Inquiry-based learning using HPC in Kindergarten: HSIE and Science and another study in a secondary school titled Students as Knowledge Creators and a further HPC study with a group of mainstream teachers in two secondary schools in NSW. Findings from the study are now available.
