Students show their smarts with cardboard creations

Students show their smarts with cardboard creations | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

When it comes to cardboard, the possibilities are endless. At least that’s what elementary and middle school students were trying to prove on Saturday. The children were cutting, taping and building with the paper recyclable in the cafeteria of Wyoming Seminary Lower School as they took part in the Global Cardboard Challenge Saturday.

School Programs | The Science House Foundation - Funding Science and Math Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Science House Foundation works in partnership with scientists and teachers to offer classroom science programs to schools around the world. Each program provides educational tools – such as microscopes, books or robotics kits – and engages students through challenges and lessons from renowned scientists. All participants play an active role in the program, contributing their findings, helping each other to solve problems, and even coming up with their own activities.


Our current projects explore microbiology, robotics and the environment. Applications for all programs are open year round. We are always looking for teachers with enthusiasm and imagination to get involved!

"At its simplest, a flipped format can involve a teacher inviting students to view YouTube videos at home as a preview to the day's topic. At its most rigorous, a flipped curriculum involves teachers writing, producing, directing, editing, and posting their own original lessons -- complete with custom narrations and visualizations -- via third-party applications."

Why should the video watching previous to in-class? The core is quality video access and intensive in-class interaction. The lecture can't complete with these superb ones.

 

꼭 뒤집어야만 하는가? 내게 플립러닝의 핵심은 수준 높은 비디오와 강력한 상호작용이다. 순서와 방식은 여러 가지가 가능하다. 선생님이 개념 설명 행위는 여기 비디오를 보면 조만간 사라질 게 당연해 보인다.

Let’s Give Girls a Chance to Succeed in STEM | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
With college-educated women outnumbering college-educated men, why does such inequality plague STEM-based professions? From what I hear in my work as an education technology entrepreneur, an antiquated cultural myth still exists that girls are inherently uncomfortable with computing, math and science.

Juguetes para niñas y juguetes para niños. Cuando se verá reflejada socialmente la importancia de no clasificar  por género de los juguetes.

MISFEM's curator insight, January 12, 2016 1:07 PM

En este interesante artículo, Sara Vierna concluye que  "si queremos ver mujeres ocupando puestos de alta responsabilidad en las instituciones, mujeres referentes en los campos científico-tecnológicos y mujeres liderando proyectos de gran envergadura, necesitamos educar en igualdad y potenciar un juego diverso que no limite y que por el contrario favorezca el desarrollo integral de unas y de otros. Nosotras merecemos al fin saborear el placer del protagonismo y ellos recuperar el mundo de los afectos y de los cuidados del que fueron apartados."


¿Y si fomentamos en los niños estas posibilidades?, permitiendo que jueguen sin estereotipos ni clichés, podría ser un buen comienzo.

STEM students fare better when professors don't just lecture, study finds @insidehighered

STEM students fare better when professors don't just lecture, study finds @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Scott Freeman and the other scholars behind a new study comparing the efficacy of lectures with more "active" forms of instruction in the science classroom are not aiming low in describing the significance of their findings.


Just as the U.S. surgeon general's 1964 report on smoking provided strong evidence linking tobacco use to ill health, Freeman said, the study he and his colleagues published Monday "provides overwhelming evidence that active learning works better than lecture." That may not mean that instructors stop lecturing, he said, "but it shouldn't be about the evidence anymore."


The study, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by a team of researchers at the University of Washington and University of Maine, is a meta-analysis of 225 previous studies comparing student outcomes in science, technology, engineering and mathematics courses that use lectures only versus those that incorporate group problem-solving, use of clickers, workshops or other forms of "active learning."

22 Interactive Lessons to Bring Earth Day to Life

22 Interactive Lessons to Bring Earth Day to Life | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"Planning for Earth Day 2014 is well underway around the world. Bring environmental issues to your classroom with resources from PBS LearningMedia. Highlights include an animated video from Loop Scoop using orange juice consumption to teach about biodegradation, a lesson tracking waste in neighborhoods from America Revealed, and a QUEST video transporting viewers to the beginning of the environmental movement."

If you are looking for some great resources to help your students learn more about the environment this list of 22 interactive lessons may be right up your alley. The lesson plans are for students as young as Kindergarten up through Grade 12. All are from PBS and all come with materials to use in conjunction with the interactive activities. PBS does require that you create a user name after you access two items but you may also create and save items in a favorite files for future use.

Este episodio, Mirada Científica presenta dos iniciativas distintas que promueven la creatividad y la invención. Primero conoceremos al "Puerto Rico Institute of Robotics" (PRIOR), a su fundador, el ingeniero Wence López, y cómo introducen a los jóvenes en el mundo de la robótica. Luego vamos a la Universidad del Este donde visitamos la octava edición del Foro de Inventores y Emprendedores. Allí conocimos a Gerson Restrepo, director de la actividad.

Sparticl is a website that promotes STEM and is geared to teens (and open to anyone). Sections include:

* Living Things

* Matter & Energy

* Tech & Invention

* Body & Brain

* Earth & Science

You can do a search for any topic and then filter the results by type which include:

* Text (article/site)
* Video

* Interactive/Quiz

* Game

* Images

* Scientist Profile

* Hands-on Activity

This site is sponsored by Twin Cities PBS and provides many opportunities for students to interact online, allows them to earn points, make suggestions and more. This is a new resource to me that I will be using with students.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 27, 2013 9:09 PM

If you have wondered why spatial skills matter this post states "The ability to mentally manipulate shapes and otherwise understand how the three-dimensional world works turns out to be an important predictor of creative and scholarly achievements, according to research published this month in the journal Psychological Science."

Why is this important? It turns out that spatial skills at the age of 13 turn out to predict "the likelihood that the individual would develop new knowledge and produce innovation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the domains collectively known as STEM."

For more information on this as well as links to additional resources check out this post.
