Engaging Girls in STEM Learning

Engaging Girls in STEM Learning | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Not surprisingly, today’s girls are overwhelmingly interested in STEM. They are intrigued by solving puzzles and problems and understanding how things work. These girls are ready for new and innovative STEM careers. They’re ready to tackle 21st century challenges and make a difference in the world. Read what today’s girls say about STEM.

Here’s the rub. A new study by the Girl Scout Research Institute points out that girls start losing interest in math and science during middle school ...

Flipping Lab Science with Remote Labs | Digital Learning Environments

Flipping Lab Science with Remote Labs | Digital Learning Environments | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"There’s a growing interest in “flipping the classroom” to support differentiated instruction, allowing students to explore and learn at their own pace, and for buying time to do more project-based learning in class. It’s a simple idea that I first heard from a Virginia Tech engineering professor about 8 years ago when he called it “turning the classroom right side up”. Whatever you call it, the principle is the same – save class time for the most important “live interaction” activities, and assign everything else as homework." ...

"Now the same idea can be applied to lab science..."

Richard Byrne shares six science games that are available online through Rice University. The games include:

* CSI Adventure - six adventures that allow students to become forensic scientists and solve a crime.

* Cool Science Careers - students may explore five STEM-based careers. Students take an interest survey and their adventure will be guided by their interests.

* MedMyst - learn about microbiology with a focus on infectious diseases and how they spread.

* Reconstructors allows you to "gather evidence and data to solve drug-related cases." (3 games)

* Virtual Clinical Trials - become a research scientist and help develope treatments for spinal cord injuries, depression and brain injuries.

* N-Squad - "investigate the effects of alcohol on the digestive, circulatory, and nervous systems."

These games are geared to middle and high school students and these adventures are also available in Spanish!

Science practical work instructional technologies and open distance learning in science teacher training

Science practical work instructional technologies and open distance learning in science teacher training | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The practical work component offers unique challenges for university science courses. This is even more pertinent in an Open and Distance Learning (ODL) environment like the Bindura University of Science Education’s Virtual and Open Distance Learning (VODL) programme in Zimbabwe. Effective ODL education should be flexible enough to accommodate science disciplines with practical components. The main challenges with practical work in ODL are that students are geographically scattered and that they come from very different educational backgrounds.  This article tackles the issues.
