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:
Our elementary school is transforming from a Magnet School of Math, Science, and Technology to a STEM school. I am very excited about the changes that are about to occur and am looking for resources.
A friend on Twitter recommended this resource to me for anyone: The Khan Academy on YouTube. It offers free lessons on pretty much anything Science and Math related (Although there's more math resources available).
The founder was also recently interviewed on CCN here.
Business and Industry STEM Education Coalition
America 2020 , WIll You be Ready
Established March 1, 2010
This is a followup on the Convocation on the Gathering Storm.
Has had its first launch. Web site coming. We met on March 12 at the National Academy of Sciences , with Norm Augustine, Rep. Bart Gordon, and Rep Vern Ehlers were our keynotes as well as children who are engaged in stem initiatives.
We are thinking of ways to , create awareness of STEM education and with four goals in mind. As a coailtion of industries the purpose is to align their efforts to develop our future workforce in order to build our nation;s economic competitiveness, sustain national security, and develop future jobs and employment specialties that engage a dynamic STEM workforce.
We are foundations, industry and business associations, and a few teachers , foundations.
We want to bring proven project based , hands-on STEM experiential student learning activities to a national scale and ensure that they are sustained and aligned with national goals for STEM Education.
We seek to recruit, train and retain effective teachers.
Employer want to identify early and nurture students with aptitudes for STEM and then attract students to and retain them in STEM Career Trakcs, particularly students who are underrepresented in the STEM workforce.
Coalition membership is open to business and industry organizations that represent employees within STEM related fields. Coalition partners and advisory members are professional associations, government entities and STEM Stakeholders. You may be interested in having businesses in your area join the coalition.
For more information about the coalition, contact Daphe Dador at firstname.lastname@example.org
The American Society for Engineering Educatin's Engineering K12 Center website is very, very informative for STEM careers.
Hello, We add environmental issues and creativity via NEXT.cc, an educational non profit that assists teachers in using technology in their classroom with place based activities across nine scales- nano, pattern, object, space, architecture, neighborhood, urban region and the world. NEXT.cc offers 130 multi part journeys linked to over 1300 institutions, museums and contemporary practices. Check us out and see how your students respond.
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
This report addresses the need to provide all children with an education that includes a solid foundation of rigorous science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) instruction. The need is evident, yet the barriers are vast - recruiting and retaining highly qualified teachers with STEM backgrounds; school policies around credits and curriculum; student, teacher, and parent attitudes; time constraints; and lack of funding and/or leadership to infuse STEM approaches into the current system.
