Perfect for beginners or those of you who haven’t used Stile in a while, we’ll cover all of the basics to get you going in Stile including creating subjects, browsing the Stile library, adding students and more!

‘Reinforcing science inquiry skills in the classroom with Marta Ivkov’
17th February 5pm AEDT

Science inquiry skills are a pivotal element of science education, and often a barrier to students fully engaging with scientific ideas and concepts. In this webinar, with our guest Marta Ivkov, we’ll explore how to embed our skill builder lessons into your topics to support student development of inquiry skills.

Guest Speaker: Marta Ivkov

Marta is an educator, teacher and is a former Head of Content at Stile. She is particularly passionate about innovative curriculum design that fosters the development of scientific literacy skills and empowers students to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Whilst at Stile, Marta led the content team to develop innovative, world-class resources that integrated scientific disciplines with real-world contexts. She’s particularly proud of developing Stile’s skill builder lessons and the integration of these key skills across the collection. Another highlight during her time at Stile was the creation of Art of Science lessons which promote discussions about important scientific issues through the use of visual communication.

Marta is currently enjoying being back in the classroom teaching Science, Mathematics and VCE Biology in a highly multicultural, low-socioeconomic school in Victoria.
