Science Infographics Breakdown STEM Subjects as Visual Maps. Click to enlarge It's often easy to get stuck into a narrow view of what a particular field of study entails, but as Dominic Walliman reveals in his impressive science infographics, there's much more than meets the eye when thinking of particular STEM subjects.

22 Ideas for Playful Learning Outdoors

She is so fascinated with real-world learning, such as observing her shadow, feeling dirt, observing animals, or touching plants. I’ve been an educator for over 2 decades. I know right now is her best learning experiences, because she is curious and hungry to discover her world through all her senses. In a few years, she will enter the education system and I worry policies and curricula driven by standards will kill her love of learning.

Our students should be curious, experiment, explore, and conduct research in their everyday lives. Mathematical Mindset Teaching Guide, Teaching Video and Additional Resources. We have designed a Mathematical Mindset Guide to help teachers create or strengthen a growth mindset culture.

Mathematical Mindset Teaching Guide, Teaching Video and Additional Resources

This guide contains five Mathematical Mindset Practices along with links to teaching videos. The videos all show Jo and Cathy teaching middle school students. There are different stages described in each practice to help capture the journey of a mathematical mindset classroom and the evidence teachers may collect along the way for their own reflection or for discussion with colleagues. The guide has been designed for teachers to use in the process of self-reflection, or for coaches or administrators to use to encourage a mindset teaching culture. Six Characteristics of a Great STEM Lesson. —Getty By Anne Jolly STEM is more than just a grouping of subject areas. It is a movement to develop the deep mathematical and scientific underpinnings students need to be competitive in the 21st-century workforce. But this movement goes far beyond preparing students for specific jobs. Wizard School (formerly WonderBox) - by Duck Duck Moose on the App Store.

Case Studies › STEM to STEAM. Early photographer Charles Nègre (1820–1880) is a classic example of the combination of art and science in one creative personality.

Case Studies › STEM to STEAM

Having studied painting in Paris and exhibited his work for nearly two decades, he was “struck with astonishment” when he first saw daguerrotypes and immediately began experimenting with the chemistry behind photography, the physics and mathematics of optics, and the engineering principles of both camera design and the architecture he photographed. Also an avid writer, in 1851 he eloquently summed up the notion of STEAM. “Where science ends, art begins,” Nègre wrote. “When the chemist has prepared the sheet, the artist directs the lens and the three torches of observation, feeling and reasoning guide the study of nature; photography invokes effects that make us dream, simple patterns excite us, powerful and bold silhouettes that surprise and frighten us….

We are now convinced that it is less difficult to reproduce than it is to learn to see nature…. Ideas for Promoting Digital Diversity. For the next week, I will be participating in many events to support gender and cultural diversity in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields.
