10 Innovative Ways to Bring STEM to Schools

10 Innovative Ways to Bring STEM to Schools | 21st Century STEM Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
As schools look for innovative ways to bring in STEM learning, here's a possible road map for how to galvanize a school community.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

This is a great starter list...Can you suggest more?

 

My suggestion would be to have university seniors and graduate students come in as guest speakers to cover a topic related to their research project and promote STEM based education.

A great list on how to bring STEM into the classroom.  Teachers are so busy and these are easy ways to incorporate STEM lessons with things that teachers are already teaching.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

...It's too late, most teachers are already including courses with on-line MOOC's to supplement AP courses...College Board is so slow to adapt to the changing learning environment...

Practical Guidance on Science and Engineering Ethics Education for Instructors and Administrators | NAP.edu

Practical Guidance on Science and Engineering Ethics Education for Instructors and Administrators | NAP.edu | 21st Century STEM Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Over the last two decades, colleges and universities in the United States have significantly increased the formal ethics instruction they provide in science and engineering. Today, science and engineering programs socialize students into the values of scientists and engineers as well as their obligations in the conduct of scientific research and in the practice of engineering.

 

Practical Guidance on Science and Engineering Ethics Education for Instructors and Administrators is the summary of a workshop convened in December 2012 to consider best practices for ethics education programs in science and engineering.

 

The workshop focused on four key areas: goals and objectives for ethics instruction, instructional assessment, institutional and research cultures, and development of guidance checklists for instructors and administrators.

 

Leading experts summarized and presented papers on current research knowledge in these areas. This report presents the edited papers and a summary of the discussions at the workshop.

New form of competency-based learning's first batch of graduates | Inside Higher Ed

New form of competency-based learning's first batch of graduates | Inside Higher Ed | 21st Century STEM Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

A groundbreaking form of competency-based education now has its Patient Zero. Zach Sherman, a 21-year-old sanitation worker in Ohio, earned a self-paced associate degree from College for America in early June -- just shy of 100 days after he enrolled in the online program.

 

Sherman is the first completer among a group of five College for America students who have successfully earned its competency-based general studies degrees. Southern New Hampshire University launched the college in January. It is one of three institutions now offering “direct assessment” academic tracks, which are not based on the credit hour standard.

Are You STEM-Ready This Year?

Are You STEM-Ready This Year? | 21st Century STEM Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Just in time for a new school year, science educator Anne Jolly has a checklist for schools that are about to launch themselves into the STEM universe.

 

First things first: Prepare yourself for noisy, exuberant classrooms where multiple right answers abound and failure is regarded as a positive step toward discovery and a successful solution.  Get ready for kids to work closely together, using hands-on methods to solve real-world problems.  Be willing to step back and give students enough room to kick off their journey toward becoming creative, innovative, critical thinkers.

15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer) | 21st Century STEM Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

According to Code.org, 90 percent of U.S. schools are not teaching any computer science. Eyebrows have been raised this year as the U.K. passed a plan to educate every child how to code."

'SimplyNano 1' experimental kit for schools now available in English and Russian

 

In the first edition of the "SimplyNano 1" experimental kit 850 kits were produced in German and French. In Switzerland the teaching tool is already used at 600 secondary schools. The response of teachers and schools is very positive and the demand is high.

 

The experiments can be used in biology, chemistry or physics classes. The introduction of the "SimplyNano 1" experimental kit is accompanied with teaching courses that demonstrate the use of the kit.

2013 STEMx Conference Welcome!

2013 STEMx Conference Welcome! | 21st Century STEM Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Welcome to the Global 2013 STEMx Education Conference, the world’s first massively open online conference for educators which focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and more. The conference will be held online, around the clock, over the course of three days, September 19 - 21, 2013, and will be free to attend! 

 

Our founding sponsor is HP, and core conference support also comes from the International Society for Technology in Education® (ISTE).

 

STEMxCon will be a highly inclusive and engaging event that will encourage primary, secondary, and tertiary (K-16) students and educators around the world to share and learn about innovative approaches to STEMx learning and teaching. 

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics acronym is no longer adequate, as it is missing well over 20 letters that represent key skills & disciplines. As such, x = Computer Science (CS), Computational Thinking (CT), Inquiry (I), Creativity & Innovation (CI), Global Fluency (GF), Collaboration ( C ), ...and other emerging disciplines & 21st century skills"
