FaSMEd is a Science in Society Collaborative Project of the European Community.
This three year, €1.9M project led by Newcastle University takes lessons from around the world to help improve mathematics and science skills in Europe and South Africa.
Working with partners across eight countries, researchers look at how technology can be used in formative assessment by teachers to help raise attainment levels among students.
In each country this involves researchers working with a cluster of schools with a focus on the use of formative assessment and technology to improve interactions in the classroom and reduce the anxiety about performance which frequently limits learners’ development in these subjects.
FaSMEd partners are:
- University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK – Coordinator
- The University of Nottingham, UK
- Ecole Normale Superieure De Lyon, France
- Maynooth University, Ireland
- University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany
- University of Turin, Italy
- Utrecht University, The Netherlands
- African Institute For Mathematical Sciences Schools Enrichment Centre, South Africa
- Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway
