STEM Role Models Posters — In 7 Additional Languages. At the end of Nevertheless Season Two, we commissioned another four female illustrators from South America, Africa, the Middle East and China to produce a new set of posters. They were originally produced in English but we are delighted to say you can now download the complete set in 8 languages including French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese Brazilian, French Canadian, Simplified Chinese and English. The women featured serve as amazing role models in their fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (or STEM as it’s often referred to). You can listen to our episode on STEM Role Models here. We’d love you to download the posters and print them out for your school or workplace.

By taking part, you’ll help raise awareness of their achievements, and hopefully inspire a new generation of girls and women in STEM. The new alternative to Todaysmeet.

Blending with Playlists

Before getting into the specifics of this post, it is important to flesh out each concept to ensure the efficacy of these shifts in pedagogy. When it comes to personalized learning, the “personal” should be emphasized. Putting all kids in front of a device and having them engaged in an adaptive learning tool all at the same time is not personalized. Here is my take on the strategy: Personalized learning represents a movement from the “what” to the “who” as a means to facilitate student ownership of the learning process. The lofty outcomes listed above can be accomplished using a variety of innovative strategies.

See the difference? So what is a playlist exactly? A playlist, an individualized digital assignment chart that students work through at their own pace. First-grade teacher Anna Fisher has also implemented playlists in her classroom along with many of her colleagues.
