24 Fun The interactivity of the STEAM approach makes lessons more fun and stimulates the curiosity of students who will be more motivated to learn. By increasing the level of attention and motivation of the students, thanks to activities/quizzes/games, the STEAM approach allows them to reach the specific learning objectives in a faster and more profitable way by stimulating inventiveness, communication and teamwork. ● Collaboration ● Problem solving 2.7 SELECTED TEACHING METHODS AND APPROACHES EXPLANATIONS 2.7.1 RESOURCE-BASED LEARNING Resource-based learning (RBL) is particularly interesting as we speak in terms of online teaching and learning as it emphasises the use of any given resources in the teaching process. When we move our lesson from a live environment to an online type of lesson a world of infinite new resources opens. Resource-based learning is a view, which gives prominence to the role of resources in the teaching and learning process. RBL conceptualises learning as a process which foregrounds the importance of the resources available to learners. When speaking of RBL, there are presupposes that the interaction between the learner(s) and the resources (including human resources) is the main structuring device of the learning situation (Esch, 2002). This aspect is important for OTA project, as the project focuses on development of on-line courses, thus, the basic resource is the internet itself. That said, OTA does not see resource-based learning as a stand alone approach but rather as an inevitable condition, which has to be completed in order to lead an on-line courses, whether being live or pre-prepared. It is also something schools, teachers and pupils had to have during the pandemic to continue the process of schooling even when schools as buildings and places to go to were physically inaccessible for everybody. While resource-based learning as a term exists for a longer period among educators and researchers, it was the beginning of the digital era that gave additional attention to this learning approach.
