In 20013, Washington state adopted the Next Generation Science Standards, a new approach to science instruction that focuses on doing, rather than simply listening. Jessica Thompson describes science education in the age of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), focusing on the best way to mentor teachers and support students. Learn how your kids' science classes will differ from the science class you remember and how new methods of teaching are preparing our kids for the jobs of the future.

Mary Williams's curator insight, Today, 5:08 AM

Did you know that the UK Open University started broadcasting lectures on TV in 1971, and is currently the UK's largest university with 250,000 students?

Did you know that by 2019 it is expected byat 50% of all classes taught will be delivered online (that's 5 years from now...).

It's clear to me that how we teach is changing rapidly, with both good and bad effects. I'm contributing to a conference in London mid-December and we're going to try to sort out the good from the bad, and identify strategies to enhance the former whilst minimizing the latter!

5 Social Media Must Knows for Every Teacher

5 Social Media Must Knows for Every Teacher | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
Social media in the classroom reminds me of the saying, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” Instead of perceiving it as a distraction or a hindrance to learning, we must embrace opportunities for social media to expand capacity and facilitate education. Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and YouTube can become an integral part of enhancing the 3 C’s of successful teaching: Communication, Collaboration and Coordination.

Flipped-Learning Toolkit: Flipping the Non-Flippable Classes | Jon Bergmann Blog | Edutopia.org

Flipped-Learning Toolkit: Flipping the Non-Flippable Classes | Jon Bergmann Blog | Edutopia.org | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
Editor's Note:This post was co-authored by Aaron Sams, Managing Director of FlippedClass.com and founding member of the Flipped Learning Network.When the subject of the flipped class comes up, many educators see how it applies to academic subjects like math and science education, but don't realize that the methodology has applications in a wide array of other classes.According to a survey of 2358 teachers by the Flipped Learning Network and Sophia Learning (PDF, 1.2MB), 33 percent of those teachers who are flipping their classes are math teachers, 38 percent are science teachers, and 23 percent teach English language arts and social studies. But can you flip the other subjects? Can you flip an elementary classroom? The answer is a resounding yes.To flip the non-flippable classes, teachers need to ask this key question: What is the best use of my face-to-face time with students? Since every teacher has a specified amount of time with his or her students per week, we must consider how to maximize that class time.The answer to this question will be vastly different for an elementary teacher compared to a middle school PE teacher compared to a high school English teacher. Though there is no one way to answer this question, there is a "wrong" answer: information dissemination.Lower-level cognitive information should be moved out of the group space and into the individual space where students can consume data at their own pace and interact with the content in a manner that meets their individual needs.And as teachers answer this question, their class will be transformed into a center of learning where students are applying, analyzing, and creating content, rather than simply acquiring information.Let's look at a few examples of teachers who use the flipped learning model in what many have considered non-flippable courses.Click headline to read more and watch video clip--
