10 Sensational STEM Teaching Resources from EducatorLabs

10 Sensational STEM Teaching Resources from EducatorLabs | Education | Scoop.it
Every now and then, we get an unexpected surprise from someone as interested in supporting teachers and students as we are. This usually means someone has gone out of their way to research and produce a valuable list of incredible online resources for use in education, and done a great job of doing so. I’m happy to say it’s happened yet again. We recently received a list of STEM teaching resources (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) from Jasmine Dyoco at EducatorLabs.
If you’re a teacher and you haven’t yet checked out this fine organization, please do so. They are one of the many collaborative groups who are working tirelessly to produce caches of freebies and other information to help educators with their work. They offer lesson plans, a very diverse Resource Bank to explore, and so much more.
The following list of STEM teaching resources Jasmine wants to share with you is just 9 of many, so we urge you to explore more if you like. Chances are, though, you’ll find what you’re looking for right here!

The Startup That’s Bringing Coding to the World’s Classrooms | Business | WIRED

The Startup That’s Bringing Coding to the World’s Classrooms | Business | WIRED | Education | Scoop.it

"This fall, the entire British school system will embrace computer science.

 

The UK is the first G8 country to include computer science education in its national curriculum, and the move could serve as a test case for so many other nations across the globe, including the United States. As computing comes to dominate our world, programming skills are more valuable than ever, but even the U.S.–the center of the technology universe–is still struggling to bring coding into the classroom. Part of the problem is that, before students learn how to code, their teachers must learn too. Pulling all that off is a massive endeavor."

This is a nice SlideShare piece that takes a complex subject and boils it down into easy-to-understand principles that anyone can use to create better visual stories.


Check it out. It's one of the better pieces I've found on the topic and includes some information I'd not seen before. Like the Taxonomy of Visual Content which covers different content in terms of cost, interactivity, and format. Very helpful! So is the slide going over the elements of successful visual content. The post also tackles how to get started.

Google's programmable Lego-like blocks teach kids to code

Google's programmable Lego-like blocks teach kids to code | Education | Scoop.it
With an increasingly digital future ahead of us, kids are being taught programming skills at younger and younger ages. Play is often the best way to start learning, and we've seen toys like the Code-a-Pillar and Photon robot developed to fill that role. Now, Google Research is aiming to accelerate the expansion of the field with Project Bloks, an open-source hardware platform for developers to create "tangible programming" tools for kids.

The system works a little like Lego, with modular blocks clipping together to make different shapes. Each block can be assigned an attribute or function, and developers and kids can use these to create simple sets of instructions for robots, toys and other devices to follow. Google likens the project to a physical version of its simple on-screen programming language, Blockly.

Daniel Tan's curator insight, May 20, 2015 7:40 PM

I think all these online response systems requiring the use of the students' devices are wonderful. However, is there an impact, perhaps one that might be significant enough, of the use of students' devices in that the device is personal. Do students using an older device relatively to others in the class be sensitive in its use When majority of the classmates have the latest ohone device models. Also when teachers and faculty be comfortable of students while using the devices in the exercise are distracted (actual or presumed or perceived) with other apps during that exercise? 

 

Also when the wireless access point be robust and reliable enough when it experiences a surge/flood of signals when large numbers of simultaneous responses are transmitted in a small time window. 

 

My observation is that teachers do not want to be encumbered with such distractions, uncertainty and confrontation when only partial student responses are recorded due to technical issues. The latter also leads to the technical support of student devices which is unknown (which version of OS), unfamiliar (what other apps or potential of interdependencies) and uncertainty (are you sure they are not checking on their apps while others are still thinking of their responses?)

Chris Carter's curator insight, May 20, 2015 8:11 PM

There are a number of student response systems. The more important question, rather than which one are you using, is are you using any one at all?

K_Lynam's curator insight, May 26, 2015 5:31 PM

Will cost you to get benefit of asking multiple questions, securing data & privacy, and being able to export data. $75/year for basic protections & additional questions, or $180 to add colleagues and get all Mentimeter has to offer. Device agnostic - works across platforms. Real time answers to multiple choice, open-ended or scaled responses.

"When the Minute 319 'pulse flow' began in March 2014, it was not clear whether the effort would be enough to reconnect the Colorado River with the Sea of Cortez. Some hydrologists thought there might be just enough water; others were less optimistic. It turns out the optimists were right, though just barely. For the first time in sixteen years, the Colorado River was reunited with the Sea of Cortez on May 15, 2014."
