The Innovative Educator: Want to succeed in STEM? Listen to the experts!

The Innovative Educator: Want to succeed in STEM? Listen to the experts! | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

This post begins with a quote from President Obama:

"“The quality of math and science teachers is the most important single factor influencing whether students will succeed or fail in science, technology, engineering and math.” From this point it veers  in a different direction, noting that the issue is that teachers "are not given the freedom to support children in ways that will produce the scientists and innovators our country needs."

If we look to our past (and our present) we will find that we are not listening to the advice that "our nation's historic inventors, scientists, and physicists (whom have shared) their advice and experiences." 

Read the article to learn the experiences of Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Richard Feyman, Michio Kaku (which includes a video where he explains "that exams are crushing curiousity out of the next generation..."), as well as individuals around today such as Aaron Iba and Jack Andraka (the student who at the age of 15 created a test for pancreatic cancer).

Perhaps the question we need to ask is how do we change the system to support the necessary learning?

Rhyme 'n Learn: World’s Greatest Math and Science Rap

Rhyme 'n Learn: World’s Greatest Math and Science Rap | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"Rhyme ‘n Learn is math and science taught by mnemonics. A mnemonic is a learning aid. It uses word associations like rhymes so that a term or fact is easier to recall later. An example of a mnemonic is “In fourteen hundred ninety two Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” I learned that in 3rd grade. Thanks Mrs. Erbach.

Rhyme ‘n Learn was created by me, Joe Ocando. I’ve taught math and science to students of all ages and discovered that many find it difficult to memorize hundreds of new terms and facts. I also found that rote learning is boring and not very effective for long term retention."

Currently there are 14 math raps and 11 science raps available.
