Providing science and math content online can be relatively straightforward, but engaging students in true distance learning requires more than just transmittal of information. Secondary students in particular need to be able to see and ask questions during laboratory experiments, or receive feedback when developing their own solutions to math problems. During a recent edWebinar, two experienced teachers explained how they made the transition from teaching in a classroom to remote instruction during the spring, and how they are prepared to teach online or in hybrid settings during the new school year.
Beth Tumminello and Kim Gardner will explore techniques, lesson plan development, tech tools—many of which have free versions—and more for middle grade math and high school science.
In this edWebinar, you will learn how to effectively employ a variety of educational strategies to best confer sophistication and appropriate content.
The situation was bleak: There were just a few plants. The mule deer were hungry. There were no pollinators. Other animals were reproducing. The ecosystem was on the verge of collapse. Those in charge would need to figure out what went wrong. And then make quick decisions to save it. Good thing this was a simulated game designed to engage students in complex science concepts. They probably won’t feed mule deer in the future, but through a thoughtfully constructed interactive video game, learners can build their science proficiency in engaging and meaningful ways.
Steve Spangler shares his creative ideas and strategies to teach hands-on science through the medium of children’s literature.
In this edWebinar, Dr. Peters will discuss her research on priority plant species for the conservation of pollinating insects, including bees—the most effective pollinator group.
In this edWebinar, we will dive into how games can be used to support the innovations of the NGSS, such as progressions of the three dimensions across K-12, being phenomena-driven, and teaching with storylines.
This edWebinar will define the state of the art mountain research and outline the most important research challenges and how they can be addressed.
Join this edWebinar to learn about the foundational reading skills that are critical for reading development and review the science behind these skills.
