Researchers and producers will develop and research a spatially focused mathematics curriculum that will engage 39 teachers, 50 families, and approximately 585-780 preschool children (Massachusetts, New York, DC).
125 parents and preschool children in rural Mississippi and Kentucky use mobile, computational thinking apps at-home, supported by a virtual engagement model that helps librarians connect with parents and use digital media to bridge learning environments.
Earth Partnership offers tools for teachers learning how to guide their students, colleagues and community members through schoolyard restorations. Ten steps form the backbone of the Earth Partnership curriculum:
Earth Partnership has innovative curriculum guides that direct interdisciplinary explorations in ecology and restoration. Guides are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core and encourage growth in science, math, literacy, art, social studies, and more.
This guide describes what took place during NYSCI’s Big Data for Little Kids workshop series, Museum Makers: Designing With Data. In addition to detailed outlines of the activities implemented during the program, this guide includes a glossary of recurrent terms and resources used throughout the workshops.
Style Engineers is a program designed for young girls who love fashion as much as we do! We think the real magic of fashion is how science, technology, engineering, and mathematicsare part of the process of fashion design. On this site, you will find a series of activities designed to explore the science and technology of fashion.
Background: Teacher self-efﬁcacy has received attention because of its direct relationship with teachers’ classroom behaviors. Since engineering has been increasingly introduced in K-12 (precollege) education, development of an instrument to measure teachers’ self-efﬁcacy in the context of teaching engineering has been needed.
Purpose (Hypothesis): This study reports the development and validation of the Teaching Engineering Self-Efﬁcacy Scale (TESS) for K-12 teachers.
Each of the five Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Elementary Teacher Efficacy and Attitudes toward STEM Surveys (T-STEM) contains six scales (sets of surveys items that most confidently describe a single characteristic of the survey-taker when the responses to these items are calculated as a single result). The first scale is called the Personal STEM Teaching Efficacy Belief Scale (PSTEBS) and consists of Likert-scale questions which ask the respondent about their confidence in their teaching skills.
The inventory is a free tool to assess how your collaboration is doing on 20 research-tested success factors. It takes about fifteen minutes to complete. It can be distributed to a small group of leaders in the collaborative, during a general meeting, or via mail to all members for the most complete picture. You can tally your score manually or online.
