Stile’s Professional Learning Webinar Series explores using high impact teaching strategies to enhance science teaching and learning in your school.

Throughout Term 3&4, we ran “Webinar Wednesdays” to share how Stile can be used to augment your science classroom — whether that be face-to-face or remote! Below are recordings of our previously run webinars — watch them back as a refresher or share them with a colleague!

Our classrooms are inherently diverse places, but creating an inclusive and equalising learning environment can be difficult at the best of times. To support you in embedding Indigenous perspectives in our science classrooms and to create more inclusive learning environments, we hosted a panel discussion with Bruce Ngataierua and Jordyn Pol. Bruce and Jordyn are passionate educators in their respective cultures and have years of experience in the classroom.

Spaced repetition is easy when you have Squiz. Understanding fundamental science concepts and terminology is essential to being able to engage in deeper scientific conversations. Watch our webinar where we take a squiz at our favourite “Science-quiz” application. Squiz is a fun, spaced repetition app that makes learning the basics a game. We’ll discuss how you can make the most of Squiz and integrate it into your teaching.
