We share evidence-based K-12 learning strategies that empower you to improve education.
STEM education provides many opportunities and challenges. How can our practice evolve to meet the needs of 21st-century learners?
What are your favorite STEM education resources?
I will get you started with a few of mine:
I am the Education Programs Manager at Smithsonian's National Zoo. We have some resources that we are happy to share with teachers:
Our website is full of great information for students interested in biology, life sciences, or conservation fields. Whether you want to find an article about our reproductive efforts with giant pandas, are interested learning in what it takes to become a wildlife geneticist, or want to read up on our species survival plans, we have cool and interesting stories to share.
We recently launched an app, available through iTunes, that lists nearly all of our animals A-Z (something you can't easily find on our website) and features our critter cams and short movies about our animals. You can also customize a tour of the Zoo. This is helpful if you're at the Zoo, but can be a great way to bring us to your classroom no matter where you are. We will continue add educational content to this app! We are very excited to see how teachers use the app, and I would welcome feedback from you if you do!
Finally, our YouTube channel has everything from awww inducing video of cheetah cubs to interviews with our world renowned scientists.
Hope some of these are helpful to you and your students,
These are such great books. Are they also available as e-books?
