Support For Science, Technology, Engineering And Mathematics (STEM)

The Journal of Technology and Science Education (JOTSE) has been created as a contribution to the development and improvement of scientific and technological education by constituting a common space to share experiences to all those who, somehow, are involved in the teaching and learning processes of engineering studies, in all modalities. Washington, D.C. -The DC STEM Network is one of eight groups to win the US2020’s 2018 STEM Coalition Challenge. The Challenge was a nationwide competition for communities toincrease hands-on STEM mentoring and maker-centered learning to underrepresented students. The winners were announced at the Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo, CA, last week. The DC STEM Network will receive a share of a $1 million award which will support further innovative, STEM-based learning for Washington, DC students.

Enhancing Education

College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado provides excellence in teacher education, counseling, technology and psychology, at the undergraduate and graduate level. School observation and practice teaching are integral components of the professional experience in this degree. This professional experience is offered in partnership with participating schools and will provide you with the opportunity to develop your teaching skills and professional understanding. During their initial years of teaching, most new science teachers use little of what teacher education programs promote.

These strands of scientific proficiency represent learning goals for students as well as providing a broad framework for curriculum design. They address the knowledge and reasoning skills that students must eventually acquire to be considered fully proficient in science. They are also a means to that end: they are practices that students need to participate in and become fluent with in order to develop proficiency. … Read more

Progress In Science Education (PriSE)

Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Web Site. Lillian C. McDermott, Professor of Physics at the UW and recipient of the 2014 University Faculty Lecture Award speaks at the annual University Faculty Lecture, February 19, 2015 at UW’s Kane Hall. The Physics Education Group in the UW Department of Physics has been conducting research in physics education since the 1970s. The goal is to identify and address the intellectual challenges that physics presents to university students, including prospective and practicing K-12 teachers. The results guide development of research-based and research-validated instructional materials to improve conceptual understanding and reasoning ability from kindergarten through graduate school. A commentary on the termination of the anti-nepotism policy at UW in 1972 precedes a few examples of our group’s research and a summary of our progress.

Education Sciences

Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Web Site. SciJourn Project The SciJourn Project uses the practices of science journalism to develop science literacy among high school-aged students. This section provides statistics and facts related to education and science, including information on educational institutions, skills and levels, markets, as well as data on research and development. Melbourne Aquarium – offers education programs for primary through to senior secondary level students, comprehensive teacher resources, student interactive activities and the opportunity for secondary students to undertake work experience.

Traditionally the high school curriculum has consisted of physics in grade twelve, chemistry in grade eleven, and biology in grade ten. Often schools have moved to second-level courses in each of these three disciplines; at times these advanced courses are titled Advanced Placement and can be counted toward college degrees if scores on national tests are high enough to satisfy colleges. This focus … Read more

Forestry Education Grants

Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Web Site. As part of the $1.1 billion National Innovation and Science Agenda , the Australian Government has allocated over $64 million to fund early learning and school STEM initiatives under the Inspiring all Australians in Digital Literacy and STEM measure. This includes two measures: Embracing the Digital Age (school initiatives – $51 million) and Inspiring STEM Literacy (early learning initiatives – $14 million).

Educational institutions have traditionally defined learning as the retention of factual information. The approach to education based on this view of learning emphasizes delivery, rather than engagement, on the assumption that the learner will take on board an appropriate selection of what is offered. Research and evidence is at the heart of our support for education. We use it to find out about and champion the things that make a positive, measurable difference to young people’s understanding of … Read more
