Introduction to the Methods of JUMP Math | Ontario Teachers' Federation

Introduction to the Methods of JUMP Math | Ontario Teachers' Federation | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

JUMP Math is founded on the belief that all children can learn math and all teachers can become experts in the subject. JUMP has developed an evidence-based approach to instruction, called “guided discovery,” that will help you nurture the potential in every student. In a randomized controlled trial, students taught by this method (featured in Scientific American Mind) progressed at twice the rate of those in the control group.  This webinar shows you how to use JUMP’s online Teacher’s Guides to raise levels of student engagement, boost confidence, close the gap between students and instil a deep understanding and love of math in your students. ..Read More....

STEAM Ahead NH | ERC News | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

Since the summer of 2014, the Education Resources Consortium has had the pleasure of supporting the birth and development of STEAM-Ahead NH, located at Manchester High School West in New Hampshire’s Queen City. The idea originated when local business owners Jeremy Hitchcock of Dyn and Nick Soggu of SilverTech, both graduates of Manchester schools, were inspired to support the creation of a program focused on the STEM fields.  They were joined by Mayor Ted Gatsas who suggested including the Arts to include the creative thinking aspect often missing in STEM initiatives. The STEAM concept coincided with the arrival of new Manchester West Principal Christopher Motika, who helped to move quickly to fit the pieces together.  According to Motika, community partners around Manchester, including higher education players came together, and “bent the rules just enough” to begin the first cohort of STEAM-Ahead. ..Read More....
