STEM teachers trained on providing content for study resources website

The Ministry of Education on March 18 announced that it had delivered a two day course on using and creating content for the Cambodian study resources website, for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) teachers from “resource schools” in Prey Veng, Svay Rieng and Kampong Cham provinces.

The course was conducted from March 14-15 at Ang Duong High School in Prey Veng province, with support of Asian Development Bank through its Upper Secondary Education Sector Development Programme (USESDP), the ministry said in a statement.

The course sought to train teachers on methods of searching for and creating STEM-related content to upload to the site, to promote and inspire innovative ways of teaching that employ newer technology, added the statement posted on the ministry’s Facebook page.

“[The] website makes it easier for teachers, students and the public to digitally search for materials at all levels, from kindergarten to higher education, according to subject.

“It also makes finding resources more straightforward, such as interactive multimedia, video and audio files, worksheets, teaching guidebooks and plans, posters and images, educational cartoons and games, and various research documents,” it said.

The ministry reiterated that the website would provide children a range of educational resources and serve as an electronic library for teachers, students, researchers and the general public.

The website will help strengthen the digital capacity of teachers and users to search for content, and share research articles for the benefit of all users, it said.
