Educational failure is not uncommon in students with high intellectual ability who struggle to succeed at school or who feel ostracized or rejected by their peer group. In disadvantaged social settings giftedness is often masked by socio-economic shortcomings or even by the low expectations of educational centres themselves. The purpose of the STEAM Stars project is to design innovative methods and pedagogies to provide more challenging and motivating exercises and methods for gifted and talented students. The project will also train teachers to recognize giftedness and address the unique needs of gifted and talented students.

The aim of STEAM Stars is to design OER digital learning materials and tools in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) for gifted students. The project will develop the STEAM Stars Open CAMPUS, a multilingual ICT based training hub and platform which includes different elements of open education and innovation based on digital technologies. This includes an Online Instructional Guide on Digital Competencies for Virtual Learning and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) addressed to schoolteachers, trainers and non-formal and informal educators.
