Enhancing Education: The 5 E's

Enhancing Education: The 5 E's
The 5 E's is an instructional model based on the constructivist approach to learning, which says that learners build or construct new ideas on top of their old ideas. The 5 E's can be used with students of all ages, including adults. Each of the 5 E's describes a phase of learning, and each phase begins with the letter "E": Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate. The 5 E's allows students and teachers to experience common activities, to use and build on prior knowledge and experience, to construct meaning, and to continually assess their understanding of a concept. Engage: This phase of the 5 E's starts the process. An "engage" activity should do the following: Make connections between past and present learning experiences Anticipate activities and focus students' thinking on the learning outcomes of current activities. Explore: This phase of the 5 E's provides students with a common base of experiences.

Learning Cycle The lesson plans on the AGPA website use the Learning Cycle as the instructional model for its lesson plans. The learning cycle rests on constructivism as its theoretical foundation. "Constructivism is a dynamic and interactive model of how humans learn" (Bybee, 1997, p. 176). Discovery Education SCIENCE and the 5E Model: Whitney Mihoulides #SSDOD2011 A DEN Account Manager for Discovery Education, Whitney Mihoulides focuses her presentation on digital media in the Science classroom. Students are engaging with technology and digital media outside the classroom, so why not bring it inside the classroom. Digital media lets students see at the micro and sub-micro levels something you could not otherwise see. While digital media will not replace hands-on lab work, Discovery Science is designed to enhance your classroom inquiry. Today we are approaching the 5 E’s in a linear progression.

5e Learning cycle 1 Definition The 5e learning cycle is an instructional design model that defines a learning sequence based on the on the experiential learning philosophy of John Dewey and the experiential learning cycle proposed by David Kolb. Attributed Roger Bybee of the Biological Science Curriculum Study (BSCS)[1], the model presents a framework for constructivist learning theories and can be effectively used in teaching science. 2 The model Engage Here the task is introduced. 5Es Overview: “The 5E instructional model” 5Es Overview: “The 5E instructional model” What is a 5E instructional model? This model describes a teaching sequence that can be used for entire programs, specific units and individual lessons. NASA eClips™ supports the 5E constructivist learning cycle, helping students build their own understanding from experiences and new ideas. What are the 5Es? The 5Es represent five stages of a sequence for teaching and learning: Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend (or Elaborate), and Evaluate.

Rodger Bybee esittely Rodger W. Bybee is Chair of the Science Forum and Science Expert Group and was a Questionnaire Panel Consultant for Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2006. Until 2007, Dr. Bybee was Executive Director of the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS), a non-profit organization in Colorado Springs, Colorado that develops curriculum materials, provides professional development for the science education community, and conducts research and evaluation on curriculum reform. Prior to joining BSCS, he was Executive Director of the National Research Council’s (NRC) Center for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Education (CSMEE), in Washington, D.C. Between 1985 and 1995, he participated in the development of the National Science Education Standards, and between1992–1995 he also chaired the content working group of that NRC project.

Creating Teachable Moments with Rodger Bybee The International Science Teaching Foundation and its project Science Bits was honored by the presence of the renowned American pedagogue Rodger W. Bybee, the director of the team that created the 5E instructional model. The 5E instructional model was developed in the 1980s by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study team (BSCS) and has been used in several primary and secondary schools across the United States. Studies on the model have shown there to be significant improvements in conceptual learning, skills development, as well as greater interest in science by students.

The learning cycle (huomaa ero 5E) The learning cycle is a model of instruction based on scientific inquiry. This model encourages students to develop their own understanding of a scientific concept, explore and deepen that understanding, and then apply the concept to new situations. Exploration In the first phase, students work on their own or in small groups to explore scientific phenomena, manipulate materials, and attempt to solve problems.

Learning Cycle tuntisuunnitelmia ja LC kompakti esittely The lesson plans on the AGPA website use the Learning Cycle as the instructional model for its lesson plans. The learning cycle rests on constructivism as its theoretical foundation. "Constructivism is a dynamic and interactive model of how humans learn" (Bybee, 1997, p. 176). A constructivist perspective assumes students must be actively involved in their learning and concepts are not transmitted from teacher to student but constructed by the student. In the early 1960's, Robert Karplus and his colleagues proposed and used an instructional model based on the work of Piaget.

The Learning Cycle in Elementary Science — Tundra: Life in the Polar Extremes Hands-on activity is important in science. As students observe, measure, and manipulate, they are exploring content as well as the very nature of science. Yet these hands-on investigations don’t always equate with deep, meaningful, and correct understanding of scientific concepts. In many cases, students will interpret an activity in a way that strengthens misconceptions, rather than corrects them. How can teachers ensure that hands-on science leads to real learning? One effective way is through the implementation of the learning cycle.
