A&H: Technology Enhanced Learning. Learning is becoming: dynamic, real-time, social, mobile, local, fluid, peer to peer, gamified.

A&H: Technology Enhanced Learning

The future will require more resilience. “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read or write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” – Alvin Toffler. Teachers are filters for the current information tsunami. “The problem is not really information overload, but filter failure.” – Clay Shirky. Welcome to! Scratch - Imagine, Program, Share. Minecraft Modding Classes - ThoughtSTEM. Beneath the world of Minecraft is an equally fascinating world of hardware and software -- built upon 150 years of computer science history.

Minecraft Modding Classes - ThoughtSTEM

This class introduces students to this new world by exploring client/server architectures, network security, operating systems, and computer programming. To explore this world, students will be guided in setting up Minecraft servers and building Minecraft mods – while also being taught key computer science principles. The class is taught in a project-based style – with minimal lectures – making it both fun and educational. A talk by ThoughtSTEM's CEO. Why we use Minecraft to teach.

Stuffed Animal STEM Exploration. This year, invite students to explore STEM concepts using a favorite stuffed animal!

Stuffed Animal STEM Exploration

Begin by inviting students to bring in a pet stuffed animal from their home. Ask students if they think they can determine an object’s weight and size without using standard tools. Write the children’s answers down on the SmartBoard. STEMply amazing. STEM Defined STEM is an interdisciplinary approach to learning that removes the traditional barriers separating the various disciplines and integrates them into rich, real-world, relevant learning experiences for students.

STEM education attempts to transform the traditional teacher-centered classroom by encouraging a curriculum that is driven by problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning, and requiring students to actively engage a situation in order to find a solution. The acronym STEM refers to the academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM Guiding Principles. STEM & NGSS Resources. We have the relationship between the Sun and shadows down! Thanks @FOSSscience and @MysterySci @MrsSelf607. STEM & NGSS Resources. Problem-Based Curriculum: Engineering Units From Boeing And Teaching Channel. The Boeing Company and Teaching Channel have been working together since 2014 to create problem-based curricula inspired by the science and engineering innovations at Boeing and informed by globally competitive science, math, and literacy standards.

Problem-Based Curriculum: Engineering Units From Boeing And Teaching Channel

These modules are being released as part of a collection of K-12 education resources under development to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Boeing Company. Ten pairs of Boeing engineers were matched to ten teachers (grades 4-8) in Puget Sound, WA, and Houston, TX, to create 10 science modules. Each module is designed to be delivered in classrooms over a two-week period. Siemensstemday. Siemensstemday.

Chronicles of Courage: Flying Tigers

After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, an exclusive group of American pilots secretly prepare to fight the Japanese in China. They are the American Volunteer Group, nicknamed the Flying Tigers. Using daring dive tactics, Squadron Leader Tex Hill describes how the P-40 airplane was successful against the Japanese Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa, also known as the Oscar. Finland Will Become The First Country In The World To Get Rid Of All School Subjects. In an era of technology and easily accessible information, our schools still expect from us to know everything from the books, without considering whether this is going to be what we will actually need in our professional development.

Finland Will Become The First Country In The World To Get Rid Of All School Subjects

How many times have you wondered if you were going to need a subjects you were made to learn because the curriculum said so? Finland has decided to change this in their educational system and introduce something which is suitable for the 21st century. By 2020, instead of classes in physics, math, literature, history or geography, Finland is going to introduce a different approach to life through education.

Welcome to the phenomenon based learning! As Phenomenal Education states on their website, “In Phenomenon Based Learning (PhenoBL) and teaching, holistic real-world phenomena provide the starting point for learning. The teaching style is going to change too! From a teaching perspective, this style is very rewarding and worthwhile for the teachers too. Siemens STEM Day. Lesson Plans Exploring NGSS.

Lesson Plans - The Art of Ed. 5 Jewelry Techniques to Use in the Art Room - The Art of Ed.

When people think about “conventional art,” most may envision wall décor or sculpture. As art teachers, we know this is far from the truth. Sometimes the best way to display artwork for all to see is by wearing it. Have you ever tie-dyed or created silkscreen t-shirts with your students? If you have, you’ll find your students wearing their art for months to come. Another way to encourage the use of wearable art is through jewelry making. Not all art teachers see a place for jewelry in the classroom. 1. When discussing jewelry as crafts, the idea of the friendship bracelet probably comes to mind first. 2. Curiosity Machine.

Life Vest Challenge. Lesson Focus Lesson explores the engineering behind life vests or personal flotation devices and the challenges met by these devices.

Students work in teams to design and build a flotation device out of everyday materials that can keep an unopened can of soup or vegetables afloat in a bucket of water or sink for a minute. They design their life vest, build and test it, evaluate their designs and those of classmates, and share observations with their class. Age Levels: Objectives Learn about engineering design and redesign.Learn about personal floatation devices (PFDs).Learn how engineering can help solve society's challenges.Learn about teamwork and problem solving. Anticipated Learner Outcomes As a result of this activity, students should develop an understanding of:
