  2. Harnessing Technology for Deeper Learning

    By embracing technology in the classroom instead of ignoring or banning it, every educator can promote deeper learning across all subjects and year levels. In this concise, reader-friendly guide, Scott McLeod and Julie Graber outline a clear approach that helps busy teachers use digital learning tools to redesign familiar lessons and units as well as design new ones. Using the 4 Shifts Protocol, Harnessing Technology for Deeper Learning imparts valuable strategies for avoiding missteps, overcoming implementation challenges and (re)designing instruction that is both meaningful and engaging. In a short, reader-friendly format, this book challenges traditional thinking about schooling and encourages readers to question their beliefs about what real teaching and learning look like in action.

  3. STEM Education Now More Than Ever

    Rodger W. Bybee's 2012 book The Case for STEM Education was a call to confront pressing challenges and opportunities in science classrooms. This new book is a call to action at a time when the integrity of STEM disciplines is under assault. Now more than ever, he writes, society needs to recognise the place of STEM education in the cultural, political and ethical life of students as future citizens. But to make this possible, science educators must address important questions that will guide the development of their programs and practices throughout the 21st century. STEM Education Now More Than Ever is Bybee's positive and constructive response for the STEM education community as it navigates these unconventional and uncertain years.

  7. The Young Artist as Scientist: What Can Leonardo Teach Us?

    This is the first in-depth look at the important connections between the arts and science specifically for early childhood education (Preschool-Year 3). Highlighting their many commonalities such as the processes involved in creative problem-solving, the author draws on what we can learn from Leonardo da Vinci as the supreme artist-scientist. Every chapter begins with a vignette of Leonardo and relates his thinking to the development of children's ideas in the arts and STEM (STEAM). This fresh look at the interdisciplinary connections of the arts and science offers early childhood teachers and administrators a spectrum of tools for connecting the creative arts (art, movement, drama and music) to the STEM movement, 21st-century skills and developmentally appropriate skills.
