Stories of Tomorrow (STORIES) is a research and development project funded by the European Commission, involving 15 project partners from 10 countries.
The duration of the project is 30 months, starting in January 2017.
The project will use the concept of storytelling a catalyst for the effective interaction between art and STEM disciplines which share in many ways similar values, similar themes and similar characteristics.
The STORIES project proposes to introduce creative approaches in STEM education to generate alternative ideas and strategies within scientific enquiry as an individual or group, and reasoning critically between these.
The project will design and test a new vision for teaching and help develop strategies for how teachers’ roles and conditions can support and enable deeper learning for students. To do that, the project will include and use innovative and meaningful digital technologies, such as advanced interfaces, learning analytics, visualization dashboards and Augmented/Virtual reality applications and build a storytelling platform where students will develop and publish stories about a Mars Mission.
