Learning Technologies | EDUCAUSE

The term learning technologies encompasses information and instructional technology, as well as telecommunications tools, applications, and systems that support learning. The EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) explores the possible benefits and challenges of individual learning technologies, but also considers the potential impact their integration may have on advancing teaching and learning. To maximize the transformative effect of learning technologies, we look for uses of learning technology that are replicable across institutions and disciplines.

Must Have STEM Teaching and LearningTools | TeachThought

Must Have STEM Teaching and LearningTools | TeachThought | STEM Education | Scoop.it

STEM is not only a national priority, but an essential part of a modern workforce. To help your students prepare for the 21st century, teaching an integrated science, technology, engineering, and math curriculum is critical.

 

Fortunately, there are numerous websites and mobile apps that can help. South Carolina math and engineering teacher Chris Beyerle curates the following collection of must-have STEM tools.

 

He includes stalwarts (such as Google Earth and Bill Nye the Science Guy), newer mobile games (such as Vernier Video Physics and Monster Physics), and critical references (such as Pocket Body and goREACT).

There is a treasure trove of tools here. Check them out and add them to your toolkit.

20 Posts to Help Students Learn to Code | Getting Smart by Alison Anderson | STEM Education | Scoop.it
The real goal of the Hour of Code is to bring computer science courses into every school, making it part of the math and science core curriculum and already seems to be working.

 

It is National Computer Science Week, just in case you haven’t heard!  Code.org is giving every student in the US the perfect way to celebrate by organizing the Hour of Code, an event meant to give every student a taste of coding and help expose more students to computer programming. The site is packed full of resources and tutorials for students from Pre-K on up.

Creativity Crisis? Then can we make time for kids to just 'play'! | STEM Education | Scoop.it

We as teachers and parents must recognize this need and make time for children to stop and watch the clouds go by. We need to provide opportunities for self-expression and foster creative play.
