CEE: Children's Engineering Educators LLC - 6 views

  •  
    "Preparing the students of today to become productive citizens of the future requires our educational system to promote life-long learners who are able to work together to solve realistic problems and develop a basic understanding of the natural and humanly modified world around them.

    Information presented in a familiar and mind-engaging context leads to greater understanding and retention, as compared to memorization of facts in isolation. Research indicates that retention is greatest when students are actively engaged, put their knowledge into immediate practice, and become "teachers" of other students. Children's Engineering activities directly address these issues."

STEM Mom: What Inquiry is NOT - 14 views

  • not all labs in a science course should be inquiry. Doing labs that help students to "see" what it is they have been learning is also very important. But lets not kid ourselves and call it inquiry, when it really isn't

Conceptual Framework for New Science Education Standards - 7 views

  •  
    A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas was released by the National Research Council (NRC) in July 2011.  The framework identifies the key scientific ideas and practices all students should learn by the end of high school.  It will serve as the foundation for new K-12 science education standards, which will be developed by a group of states to replace standards issued more than a decade ago.  The framework is also designed to be useful for curriculum and assessment designers, teacher educators, and others who work in K-12 science education.
