  1. STEM Resources

    Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research refers to experiments conducted to address problems in those fields that can be tested using the scientific method. The scientific method is an inquiry process used to systematically study, investigate and to provide explanations for observed phenomenon in the natural world. This method is used by STEM professionals to answer questions they have about important world problems and usually includes carefully orchestrating a situation that allows them to observe, measure and test their ideas.

  5. Innovation Through Technology: The Differentiators DVD

    In this keynote session (from the 13 October 2010 21st Century Learning Institute), Cheryl Lemke shows how to design tomorrow’s curricula by using research in sociology, learning and neuroscience as reinforcement for the key elements in 21st century learning. She explains how students can use high-tech tools to explore ideas, research questions, test hypotheses, compose thoughts and reach conclusions. These tools aid in collaboration and authenticity: two highly effective accelerators to learning. This package includes a 58-minute DVD with the video session and a CD-ROM with materials to support team or individual professional learning, including the presenter’s PowerPoint, an excerpt from the book 21st Century Learning and relevant web links.

  6. 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. Essentials for Principals: Mobile Learning Devices

    In Mobile Learning Devices, the author helps educators confront and overcome their fears and doubts about using mobile learning devices (MLDs) such as mobile phones, personal digital assistants, MP3 players, handheld games and digital audio players in classrooms. Mobile Learning Devices explains what mobile learning is, how to mitigate the potentially negative effects of MLDs through acceptable-use policies, and how to use MLDs to enhance and expand learning of core content, 21st century skills and the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS). The author describes how to incorporate technology into classrooms and provides specific steps, logistical guidelines and nine complete sample lessons.

  9. STEM CIP - The Great Mixing Bowl: A Study of Ecosystems, Watersheds and Invasive Species

    In this module, students study how living and non-living things interact in an ecosystem. Students design and construct a hydrometer and use it to measure different salinity levels in water samples. They then make decisions on how the hydrometer could be used to establish the correct salinity level for an aquarium.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.”
