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?
Try #STEMchat. It's proved to be a good resource for me. While it's active all the time, there was an intensive chat about a week ago. For a summary of the chat, you can go to http://www.themakermom.com/2013/02/resources-for-girls-in-engineering.html
Hi. I am glad I found this topic because when I started Unified Super Learning (USL), one of my main goals was to drastically narrow the gender gaps in STEM, starting with math.
There is an actually incredibly fast, easy, and cheap ways to achieve this objective as I am tired of the vast majority of approaches to this goal.
One of the turning point occurred when I saw the politically incorrect true data on the average SAT scores in math between boys and girls over the past 40+ years, right till 2012. Contrary to popular belief, the boy and girl gap hasn't been narrowed at all for over 40 years! The gap has been roughly about 33-36 points throughout although they fluctuated a bit.
I initiated a new program called Unified Super Learning (USL). What it does is to make average students learn STEM subjects 10-20 times faster. I had, however, the burden of proofs. So I decided to run a big scale pilot studies and the results started coming out since about 10 days ago. Although it was only for math for K7-11, and I basically roughly proved to the direction that I can teach 1 month materials from 2 respected private schools in just 35-50 minutes and when students were taken tests in 2 days, the results were staggering.

Once I complete my math pilots, I will run physics, chemsitry, etc, later on.
I am so glad that I finally completed these pilot studies and now I need a load of supporters around the globe so that I can push this to global.
What I will do eventually is to make average students learn STEM at least 2-4 times faster and easier than the fastest learning mathematicians an physicists (I mean top 10-20 -30 of them not even Harvard or MIT professors in math or physics) in the entire world.
Imagine what kind of world we will get if this is possible.
I know the claims are extreme and almost impossible to beleive, but that was why I had to push these pilot studies.
Please share the results if you are intrested and want to support the initiative ; )
