Technology is advancing day by day and like all countries, our country follows the changes brought by new technologies. The development of societies lies on adapting to these changes. However, adopting these changes as a society is possible through innovative approaches being embedded into country policies, and the most important actors of this process are school-age students, the active workforce of the future. Creating innovative flexible learning spaces for students and raising them as self-confident individuals who have 21st century skills are the duties and responsibilities of policy makers in the field of education.
As the coordinator institution of Design FILS project The Directorate General for Innovation and Educational Technologies (YEĞİTEK) is a unit of the Ministry of National Education responsible for studies supporting the technology use, integration and mainstreaming of technologies in education. Some of the main field of work are to monitor and evaluate the new technological developments implemented in education, and enabling the use of technological opportunities in education throughout the country effectively and commonly and enabling every student to benefit from information technologies.
Directorate General will have a crucial role in the dissemination and the mainstreaming of the project with its experience in teacher trainings.
The roles of MoNE YEGITEK in this project will be as follows:

The main objectives of the project are to create new learning environments using information and communication technologies and to develop high-level skills such as scientific, creative and critical thinking by integrating innovative practices in education with STEAM Education that supports 21st century skills and multi-disciplinary learning areas. It is pretty important for the adults to have digital competencies and to use technology correctly in order to grow up healthy individuals in the society. In this context, there is a need for competent teachers and educational first. The trainer trainings for the significant infrastructure will be provided to the teachers during the project.
In addition, it will be given importance to make the educational scenarios to ensure sustainability, which are challenging for students, and based on with real life.
Students are individuals mentally ready to question and any practise they will experience under STEAM education will reinforce their learning desires and support their creative thinking skills.
Plot studies will be carried out to evaluate the consistency of the project for its purposes, to eliminate deficiencies and improve the activities. Also, expert teams in the field will evaluate the process.
Learning Scenarios in Innovative Learning Spaces Read More>>
Here you will find 12 inspiring learning scenarios that demonstrate how to put the key FILS ideas into practice, and literature review to support these learning scenarios. Together, they bring innovative pedagogical approaches that draw on the current educational trends and could be tried out in early childhood education, primary and secondary schools by teachers, and in teacher education by teacher trainers for teachers’ professional development. They are aligned with the Methodological Framework for Innovative Classroom Training (AT, CZ, ES, PT), and encompass approaches that require careful consideration of learning space and use of technology for teaching and learning.
The Literature Review (AT, CZ, ES, PT) aims to give you the theoretical and practical knowledge about the approaches described in Learning scenarios.
The 12 Learning Scenarios aim to give you some ideas of the type of learning approaches, activities, content and use of space (the concepts of six learning zones) and technology when designing your active learning lesson plans. Scenarios are accompanied with introductory videos.
