"As a student articulates his or her reasoning, they kind of self correct errors in reasoning that previously might have led to miscalculations," Elk Grove United Director of Curriculum and Professional Learning Dr. Anne Zeman said.

 

And that's really the key with the curriculum, identifying multiple approaches can give students an early sense of confidence at problem solving.

Graduating fifth-graders at a school in one of Tucson's poorest areas gave a common response when asked to draw their most memorable moment of the year.

 

The artwork is testament to a citizen-school partnership at John B. Wright Elementary School in midtown Tucson that brings leading local scientists into the classroom and exposes students to real-life possibilities they wouldn't normally see. Those scientists have included an international tree-ring expert, a solar power researcher, an astronomer and a neurosurgeon.

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.

MIT: 10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013 you should know about

MIT: 10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013 you should know about | 21st Century STEM Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

MIT's definition of a breakthrough is simple: an advance that gives people powerful new ways to use technology. It could be an intuitive design that provides a useful interface (e.g., “Smart Watches”) or experimental devices that could allow people who have suffered brain damage to once again form memories (“Memory Implants”). Some could be key to sustainable economic growth (“Additive Manufacturing” and “Supergrids”), while others could change how we communicate (“Temporary Social Media”) or think about the unborn (“Prenatal DNA Sequencing”). Some are brilliant feats of engineering (“Baxter”), whereas others stem from attempts to rethink longstanding problems in their fields (“Deep Learning” and “Ultra-Efficient Solar Power”). As a whole, this annual list not only tells you which technologies you need to know about, but also celebrates the creativity that produced them.

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.
