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.

A collection of great Maths Apps to engage younger learners with some basic maths skills.

PeteandJennyD's curator insight, March 10, 2013 3:31 AM

Sites like this take the hard work out of looking for appropriate apps to use - very helpful.  Thank you.

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."

Scientists directly write flexible circuits with high-conductivity graphene inks | #Research #Technology | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
“Soft circuits — circuits based on flexible substrates — have been a hot topic for years now, in fields from medicine to consumer electronics. Graphene would be a nearly perfect material to use for these circuits, if only we could apply it effectively. While it’s extremely conductive, it’s flaky and difficult to manufacture at scale.”

description by The Scout Report

 

"Nanoscience - the study of how materials take on unique properties when observed at the smallest of scales - has become increasingly important in all areas of science, with profound impacts on medicine, technology, and engineering. However, many members of the public have a hard time understanding this new and exciting field. Enter the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Network). Comprised of 14 museums, universities, and professional organizations, the NISE Network produces a variety of materials designed to help scientists, educators, and museum professionals engage the public with nanoscience. Detailed K-12 lesson plans are provided, as well as activities for more informal settings, such as after-school programs. Thanks to the inclusion of videos and detailed lesson descriptions, educators can implement and adapt these activities with ease. All materials are free to download and readers may subscribe to receive a monthly Newsletter to find out about community news, upcoming events, and more."

Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, December 11, 2015 5:10 AM

There is a difference in learning and sharing, we can share some things we are not able to learn. As slaves couldn't read words but they taught the ways of their lives required to be lived instead! As grandma would say having all the book sense with no good common sense don't amount to nothing. Knowing how go read a book about how to change a light bulb but having no good common sense on how to perform it makes you a person with plenty of book sense sitting on the dark at night because you don't have the good common sense on how to do what the book said. Grandma and them had a way about telling the truth as it was said if you don't want to know the truth Grandma and them style don't ask them! Learning comes in different ways not all work the same! Don't judge another because they learn differently but always remember 

what doesn't work for you just might work fine for another!

Integrating STEM Learning in Early Childhood Education | RAND

Integrating STEM Learning in Early Childhood Education | RAND | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Children can understand concepts in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), they enjoy exploring them, and early development of STEM skills seems to support learning later in life. But an effective teaching system is needed before STEM learning can be fully integrated into early childhood education.

Pisa tests to include 'global skills' and cultural awareness

Pisa tests to include 'global skills' and cultural awareness | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"Pisa tests, an international standard for comparing education systems around the world, could include a new measurement of global skills in the next round of tests in 2018. The OECD, which runs the tests in maths, reading and science, is considering adding another test which would look at how well pupils can navigate an increasingly diverse world, with an awareness of different cultures and beliefs. The OECD's education director Andreas Schleicher explains why there is such a need for new rankings to show young people's competence in a world where globalisation is a powerful economic, political and cultural force.

Education leaders around the world are increasingly talking about the need to teach 'global competences' as a way of addressing the challenges of globalisation."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 26, 7:18 PM

They define global competence as: "the capacity to analyse global and intercultural issues critically and from multiple perspectives, to understand how differences affect perceptions, judgements, and ideas of self and others, and to engage in open, appropriate and effective interactions with others from different backgrounds on the basis of a shared respect for human dignity".

 

So I guess geography does matter then.  Who knew?

Dafnord 's curator insight, June 2, 1:23 AM
Kansainvälistyminen nousee uudeksi mitattavaksi asiaksi PISA-tutkimuksissa 2018. Miten mahtaa suomalaisten peruskoulujen käydä? Pystyvätkö ne globaalitaidoissa ja kulttuurienvälisessa osaamisessa yltämään samalle tasolle kuin kansainvälistymisessä pitkälle edistyneet Britannia, Hollanti, Belgia tai Tanska. Oma kokemukseni jo 10 vuotta jatkuneesta Intia-yhteistyöstä (http://www.eumind.net) ei ennakoi Suomen kouluille huipputuloksia. Mutta toivotaan parasta.

In elementary education, ‘doing science’ rather than just memorizing it

In elementary education, ‘doing science’ rather than just memorizing it | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
The battle over Common Core education standards is playing out across the country, but a new set of requirements for teaching science is creeping into curricula without the same fanfare. Some states are voluntarily adopting the practices, which emphasize more consistent science instruction as well as hands-on experimentation. Special correspondent John Tulenko of Education Week reports.
