Siemens STEM - Challenge-Based Learning 101 | Discovery Education Webinars | Scoop.it

Presented by Cynthia Treichler, Instructional Technology Professional Development Facilitator
October 16, 2012, 7pm ET
For Educators

Today's students learn and think differently. To succeed in a global context students need to flourish into 21st century learners with the skills needed to be creative problem-solvers in a teaming setting. With the evolution of instructional technologies, we can now foster creative, emphatic, whole-minded students using digital media and web 2.0 tools to enhance academic content in a meaningful and interactive way. Join us as we explore challenge-based learning (CBL), a systematic teaching method that engages students in learning knowledge and skills through an extended inquiry process structured around complex, authentic questions and carefully designed products and tasks. We will explore the basics of CBL and examine how to construct and organize CBL experiences in the classroom. Then we'll shift into strategies for managing, assessing, and celebrating CBL. At the end of this whirlwind tour, you will feel empowered to facilitate the process while transforming learning in your own classroom.

Cynthia Treichler is a high school social studies teacher and instructional technology professional development facilitator. She specializes in technology integration and has a passion for project-based learning. Cynthia is also an adjunct professor for Wilkes University in the Instructional Media Masters Program; teaching a course on Project-based Learning.

ARCHIVE - Looking at Atoms through the World’s Biggest Microscope

ARCHIVE - Looking at Atoms through the World’s Biggest Microscope | Discovery Education Webinars | Scoop.it

From Wed, March 21, 2012 1:00 pm
Presented by Dr. Ian Anderson of Oak Ridge National Lab
Everything around us is made up of atoms. Even we are. But if we look around us all the materials we see and use in our everyday lives are different. If we want to understand the properties of materials we have to look inside and see how the atoms are organized. The question is how do we do that? We need a special microscope. In this webinar Dr. Ian Anderson of Oak Ridge National Laboratory will introduce the idea of using beams of neutrons to study not only where atoms are, deep inside materials, but also how they move.
