Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids

Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Maths Apps are the ones most frequently searched for on this site. I sometimes think that if I had some of these apps I would have taken a greater interest in Maths as a kid. It was not that I was disinterested I just missed some of the basics. With some of these game based apps at least students can be engaged long enough to discovery some of the basic maths concepts.

STEM and Writing: A Super Combination - Edutopia

STEM and Writing: A Super Combination - Edutopia | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"I brought a superhero into my classroom the other day. He wasn't wearing a cape. He didn't have an alias. But he had the greatest superpower of all: inspiration.

When you teach using project-based learning (PBL), one brings outside expertise into the classroom. My eighth graders begin the year creating science fiction based origin stories for original superhero characters as an introduction to a greater advocacy unit. Therefore, it seemed natural to bring in an actual scientist. Which brought me to CalTech and Dr. Spyridon Michalakis."

Women in Engineering: Change the work culture, change the outcome - ShowMe50™ | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
This article from NPR’s All Tech Considered summarizes findings from a recent study of why women are leaving the engineering profession. The most common reason female engineers leave is the work environment. There is still a “boys club” culture that is not welcoming or friendly to women. Nadya Fouad, the study’s author, found that although there are many programs in place at …

Eurasia Foundation

Eurasia Foundation | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:
Our core approach is based on the following guiding principles:

Inclusiveness: EF works to amplify the voices of marginalized groups, particularly women, youth, minority populations, and the economically disenfranchised. EF’s programs reach individuals and groups that reside beyond major cities and hubs and lack access to training opportunities, resources, and networks. 

Collaboration: EF is committed to building genuine and long-lasting partnerships based on trust and mutual respect. We brainstorm, design, and implement initiatives jointly with our partners on the ground and consistently seek to improve the quality of our work by soliciting input and feedback from stakeholders, partners, and beneficiaries.

Adaptation: EF adapts each of its programs to the distinct and dynamic contexts in which they operate. From addressing barriers to women’s workplace entry to creating platforms for youth participation, we examine individual experiences and use our in-country networks and partners to create interventions and resources that are relevant and useful in the daily lives of our beneficiaries.

Practicality: EF supports the creation of local solutions by building leadership and subject matter expertise within communities. From entrepreneurship to women’s empowerment, EF’s training programs emphasize critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills, reinforced with practical exercises that help participants apply these new skills in real-life settings.
