A Detailed Visual Guide To Distributed Project-Based Learning - Edudemic

A Detailed Visual Guide To Distributed Project-Based Learning - Edudemic | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

by Jeff Dunn

 

"Project-based Learning is a passion of ours at Edudemic. We’ve seen how effective it can be in and out of the classroom. Quite simply, it provides the opportunity for students to learn from each other, get their hands dirty, work in an active learning environment, and to simply have fun at school. What could be better than that? PBL teachers are typically on the lookout for PBL-aligned apps and web tools that can bolster their powerful learning environment. In an effort to help those teachers out, Katie and I found a fabulous new visual diagram that’s all about which apps and tools go with the different parts of distributed project-based learning.

 

"This chart reminds me a bit of the popular ‘Padagogy Chart’ by Allan Carrington we shared here on Edudemic. But it’s less focused on technology and more focused on improving the effectiveness of PBL. Gotta love that."

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."

Great Stem/Steam Ideas? ^ Teen Services Underground | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"Question: Do you have any great ideas for STEM (or STEAM) programs. I am a new librarian and I was asked to incorporate STEM programs into our fall programming. The age level would probably be tweens (or perhaps 3rd grade and up). I would love any input you have, including websites, ideas, etc."

 

Jim Lerman's insight: A number of very clever suggestions by teachers and librarians.

Urban Problems | Methods and Techniques in Urban Engineering | InTechOpen | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Description by The Scout Report

 

"Cities around the world run into a range of burdensome difficulties, from dwelling deficits to infrastructure problems to inefficient services to environmental pollution. The field of Urban Engineering attempts to address these complications with cost-effective and implementable strategies. This open access book outlines solutions related to urban automation, geographic information systems (GIS), monitoring and management of urban noise, floods, transportation, and many other topics. Each chapter of the book is available for individual download and covers a distinct topic. For instance, Chapter 3 focuses on "Experiences with the Ubranisation of Slums: Management and Intervention Models," while Chapter 10 looks at "Urban Flood Control, Simulation and Management - An Integrated Approach." For readers interested in understanding more about Urban Engineering, this freely accessible online book will provide a thorough introduction."

Introduction to Personalized Learning Games - Personalized Learning Games

Introduction to Personalized Learning Games - Personalized Learning Games | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
At Personalized Learning Games, our solution is game-based learning that teaches social and emotional skills. Each of our four games was developed with grants from the Department of Education, and collectively they are applicable to 25 million students in grades K through 5.

For students, our games are:

Intuitive – When kids start playing, they start learning.
Personalized – Gameplay adapts to the student’s skill level and pace of learning.
For educators, our games are:

Measurable and objective – You can’t improve what you can’t measure.
Research proven – Each game has undergone randomized controlled trials that show we get results.
Our first game, Zoo U, is available now and is most appropriate for students in grades two, three, and four. And we are hard at work to adjust Zoo U so it can also be used effectively with students in kindergarten and first grade.

And later this year, we will begin releasing three more games:

Hall of Heroes, a game focused on the transition to middle school (in limited beta),
Stories in Motion for students with Autism,
And Adventures Aboard the SS GRIN, a social and emotional skills intervention for students in elementary school.
Our team is passionate about our mission to help millions of students, and we look forward to building deep relationships with teachers, counselors, and administrators across the country.   By improving social and emotional skills, not only will students be more successful in the classroom, they will be more successful in life.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, July 13, 8:26 AM

This essay is written by a critic of Thomas Malthus and could serve as a bridge to discuss issues in a population unit and an urban unit.  In a nutshell, Dorling feels that that Malthusian-like fears and assumptions about the proliferation of slums are unfounded; this is a good reading that can spark some conversation in a college seminar.
