Teachers and instructors always want to provide the best possible learning experience for their students. STEM and CTE education are hands-on disciplines, which means at some point students must perform a practical activity. Unfortunately, there will always be some degree of limitation imposed by the classroom environment.
This recorded edWebinar shares some of the philosophies and the design processes used at Flinn Scientific when crafting new educational experiences. It also includes success stories obtained from observing and engaging with teachers in the classroom.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to STEM and CTE educators at all levels as well as district leaders.
