Our contribution to the book “Mobile Learning and STEM: Case Studies in Practice” titled “Mobile Learning and STEM – First Experiences in a Public Secondary High School in Ghana” got published.
The publication provides preliminary findings of an interdisciplinary project, where working in teacher-student teams was experienced as a solution to exploit the capacity of mobile devices for learning in combination with launching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) interventions in order to enrich activities in learning and teaching. In three workshops it was investigated how mobile devices can trigger creativity and initiate shifts in education-practice at a Secondary High School in Ghana. Teacher-student collaboration was identified as stimulation for content development and tackling cross-disciplinary learning activities.
