Diseñando un simulador de ecosistemas. Una experiencia STEM de enseñanza de dinámica de los ecosistemas, funciones matemáticas y programación Akerson V.L., Burgess A., Gerber A., Guo M. (2018) Disentangling the meaning of STEM: Implications for Science Education and Science Teacher Education. Journal of Science Teacher Education, 29(1), 1-8. DOI: Bell-Basca B. S., Grotzer T. Teach Students to Ask Their Own Questions This process explicitly validates all students’ intellectual abilities.– High School History Teacher, New York The reasons behind their questions often bowl me over with their sincerity, the fact that [they] really want to know the answers because it’s important to them, or they feel it would be important for others to know.– 4th Grade Teacher, Chicago The ability to produce questions, improve questions and prioritize questions may be one of the most important—yet too often overlooked—skills that a student can acquire in their formal education.

AP Environmental Science Test: Pollution The correct answer is (C). Polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, are a group of industrial compounds that have caused many environmental problems. Until 1979 they were manufactured in plastics and insulating electrical transformers. Even though they are not longer manufactured, they are still present in the environment because of their long-term persistence. National Critical Zone Observatory The Critical Zone (CZ) is where rock meets life. It covers Earth’s land surface and spans from the bottom of the water table to the top of the vegetation canopy. Understanding how it works requires an interdisciplinary approach across the physical, chemical, and biological sciences. Because CZ Science is so important and so new, it is vital to help STEM education professionals and their students learn about it. Moreover, CZ science is well suited to satisfying the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). It overflows with examples and applications of Crosscutting Concepts, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Science and Engineering Practices.

Multiple choice Multiple Choice Questions for Energy Resources - Chapter 21 Each chapter will include a few questions designed to test your knowledge of material covered in the chapter and in the Internet-based resources. Your answers are not being recorded. Try the following. Using the Exploring Earth Web Site Using Investigations Investigations can be used at many stages of instruction. They have been employed in whole-group settings, in individual and small group work, as homework or extra-credit assignments, and to launch independent research projects. The investigations serve particularly well as performance assessments because they allow students to apply their understanding and skills to real-world issues or situations. Many of the investigations have mechanisms that provide immediate feedback to student responses. This kind of immediate and concrete input helps guide students' thinking and facilitates the development of their speculations and hypotheses building.

Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change This narrative by Nathaniel Rich is a work of history, addressing the 10-year period from 1979 to 1989: the decisive decade when humankind first came to a broad understanding of the causes and dangers of climate change. Complementing the text is a series of aerial photographs and videos, all shot over the past year by George Steinmetz. With support from the Pulitzer Center, this two-part article is based on 18 months of reporting and well over a hundred interviews. It tracks the efforts of a small group of American scientists, activists and politicians to raise the alarm and stave off catastrophe.

Critical Thinking and STEM Education - Insight Assessment Highly competitive STEM programs depend on our research-based, validated assessments delivered via state-of-the-science online testing technology, to screen applicants. Educators use Insight Assessment’s critical thinking and reasoning measurement tools to quickly, and easily, document the skills and mindset attributes of new applicants, current students and graduates. Admission tools that generate objective information about skills in analytical thinking, interpretation, inference, evaluation, and explanation – namely, critical thinking – have proven to be powerful predictors of success at the graduate and undergraduate levels. More than skills alone, strong applicants possess a positive mindset toward learning. This means attributes such as inquisitiveness, organization, foresight, maturity of judgment, open-mindedness, and truth-seeking are equally valued. Thinking well is the key to effective problem solving and decision making.

VALUE Rubric Development Project The original VALUE initiative in 2007-09 involved teams of faculty and other educational professionals from over 100 higher education institutions engaged over many months to develop 16 VALUE rubrics for the LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes. Each rubric was developed from the most frequently identified characteristics or criteria of learning for each of the 16 learning outcomes. Drafts of each rubric were then tested by faculty with their own students’ work on over 100 college campuses. Download the Rubrics As part of AAC&U’s Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) initiative, the VALUE rubrics contribute to the national dialogue on assessment of college student learning. Since the initial release of the rubrics, more than thirty-two thousand first time individuals have visited the VALUE website between June 2010 and January 2014.

Is wood a green source of energy? Scientists are divided It took half a century for an acorn to grow into the 20-meter-tall oak tree standing here in a North Carolina hardwood forest near the banks of the Northeast Cape Fear River. But it takes just seconds to turn the oak into fuel for the furnace of a European power plant. A logging machine—a cross between a tank and a one-armed crab—grabs the tree with a metal claw.

Solid Edge Learning Resources for Educators Project Based Learning One of the many benefits of STEM education is the integration and application of cross-curricular learning. This allows students to understand the relevance of content learned in their core subjects, usually studied as stand-alone courses in secondary school. The most effective way to make curriculum rigorous and relevant is with a comprehensive and integrated project-based design. This curricula design helps students answer the questions “Why do I need to know this?”
