It is vital that the United States start producing more young people who can design the kinds of systems cell phones operate on, rather than more young people who can just text on them.

Don't question, read and think. How can we make a difference in education?

7 Powerful STEM Resources For Girls - Edudemic

7 Powerful STEM Resources For Girls - Edudemic | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"The statistics surrounding STEM education and jobs in the US are rather staggering to me. The latest that I’ve read indicate that US students are still trailing WAY behind other nations in Science and Math education (US ranks 47th in Math and Science education quality, and 78% of high school graduates don’t meet the standard levels for at least one entry level STEM class). To top it off, there’s a pretty strong gender divide in the STEM subjects: Many fewer girls are interested in even studying these subjects, and they don’t feel at all confident about their skills."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 26, 2013 11:17 PM

News reports let us know that the number of students studying the STEM subjects needs to rise, and that there is a strong gender divide. What can we do as teachers? How about finding some great websites that look at STEM and are designed for girls. This post provides a look at 7 websites. They are:

* Black Girls Code (for ages 7 - 17)

* DigiGirlz (through Microsoft)
* Center for STEM Education for Girls(transformational opportunities for girls)

* Engineer Girl (National Academy of Engineering)

* The National Girls Collaborative Project (high school and college aged)

* National Center for Women and Information Technology (high school and college)

* Dot Diva (WGBH and for high school girls)

Each site is discussed in the post and links to each are available.

GE Teach is a phenomenal site, designed by an AP teacher to bring geospatial technologies into the classroom in a way that is incredibly user-friendly. This site allows you to use Google Earth with clickable layers. With multiple data layers of physical and human geography variables, this interactive globe puts spatial information in powerful, yet fun, student-inspired platform.  Click here for a video tutorial.

"Real World Math: Using Google Earth in the Math Curriculum."   Back to my interdisciplinary approach to strengthening geographic education, image hearing that there is a Math teacher at your school using this, wouldn't you want to be a part of it?  Too often knowledge is taught within disciplinary silos; students need opportunities to make real world connections between the disciplines to breath life into how they are taught.  This site reminds me of http://www.googlelittrips.org/ which allows real world geography to be a part of literature/English classes.

3 Projects That Aim To Unleash Girls' Inner Geeks ~ readwrite

3 Projects That Aim To Unleash Girls' Inner Geeks ~ readwrite | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

by Stephanie Chan

 

"Long underrepresented in science and engineering, women are badly in need of a girl power-up. There simply aren't enough of them to fill voracious demand for technical jobs in the market today. By 2020, there will be 1.5 million too few U.S. college grads to fill the rising number of highly skilled jobs.

 

"Women could make up a good chunk of that shortfall, but only if more of them enter the pipeline. As of 2009, women earned just 31% of degrees in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), and women scientists and engineers only comprised 35% and 15% of the total, respectively.

 

"With people in short supply and technical skills in such high demand, it's a really good time to start thinking about how women could be changing the tech and science world as we know it. Here are several projects whose leaders have been doing just that."

To innovate, scientists and engineers find inspiration in the arts | SmartPlanet | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

In the innovation field, a rebirth of Renaissance thinking is brewing. Scientists and engineers are engaging with the arts to think creatively.

 

The idea is also currently reflected in the debates on re-vamping the U.S. educational system to boost the innovation skills of U.S. students. Media artist John Maeda, president of the Rhode Island School of Design, has spoken at numerous events — including before Congress — about the value of incorporating the arts to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) educational initiatives, turning STEM to “STEAM,” as Maeda has said.

The Arts is the mixing bowl for science, technology, engineering and math.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, May 6, 2013 8:20 PM

Some disciplines have evolved to their own death. Engineering has evolved logically, but not necessarily culturally,” Silver of Intel and Makey Makey, who was trained as an electrical engineer, told me at PopTech. “Creativity isn’t part of that any more. So we look to where it is; we’re desperate for it. We look to art. And it’s wonderful, because it’s there.”
