  4. Getting Started with Lego Robotics

    Wouldn't it be nice if there was a golden ticket to STEM education? What if it could be applied as part of a lesson, as a class on its own or as an after-school club? Sound too good to be true? It's not. The golden ticket is robotics. It's hard to find a better way to teach STEM education. And the best part is it's hands on, multidisciplinary, collaborative, an authentic learning experience and engaging! Gura brings together the information you need and presents it in a manageable, organised way so that you learn what LEGO Robotics is, what student activities look like, how to begin, how to manage a class and much more. Gura concludes with more than a dozen interviews with educators, trainers and even a student, so you can receive first-hand advice and recommendations.

  8. Literacy is NOT Enough: 21st Century Fluencies for the Digital Age

    Educating students to traditional literacy standards is no longer enough. If students are to thrive in their academic and 21st-century careers, then independent and creative thinking hold the highest currency. The authors explain in detail how to add these new components of literacy: Solution Fluency, Information Fluency, Creativity Fluency, Collaboration Fluency. Students must master a completely different set of skills to succeed in a culture of technology-driven automation, abundance, and access to global labor markets. The authors present an effective framework for integrating comprehensive literacy or fluency into the traditional curriculum.

  9. Total Participation Techniques: Making Every Student an Active Learner

    Providing easy-to-use alternatives to the “stand and deliver” approach to teaching that causes so many students to tune out – or even drop out – Total Participation Techniques presents dozens of ways to engage P–12 students in active learning and allow them to demonstrate the depth of their knowledge and understanding. The authors, Pérsida Himmele and William Himmele, explain both the why and the how of Total Participation Techniques (TPTs) as they explore the high cost of student disengagement, place TPTs in the context of higher-order thinking and formative assessment, and demonstrate how to create a “TPT-conducive classroom.”
