Do you as an educator find yourself needing a convenient and meaningful way to complete clock hours to renew your teacher certificate? Through our downloadable podcasts you can listen anywhere at anytime to the content and conversations within STEM education which include processes, practices, and perspectives. This technology was developed to fit into the margins of your busy life. Listen while you drive, talk a walk, or work in your garden. The interactive features will ask questions, record your reflections on our servers for verification of completion, and link you to additional resources. When you have completed your desired clock hours we verify your completion directly (Montana only) or with our clock hour providers (currently WA only), NEWESD 101 who will then provide you instructions on how to purchase your clock hours ($3/hour), purchased separately. Then you are done! All without ever having to attend a weekend conference or Zoom meeting, it really is that easy and will change how you think and interact in your educational practice! Choose from one of our 4 modules, each worth 5 clock hours, or do more than 2 and you get a discount on the 3rd. You could get started today!
Explore with N2X what a STEM Education can look like. What are the 5 W’s of STEM, how can we have better empathy for our students that leads to an empowered student who is ready to investigate and engage in the scientific process. What are some of the ways educators can reach their minority students and have a more equitable approach to all student’s education? Lastly what does STEM look like in the K5 classroom and how can teachers be training their students at the elementary level to approach their education utilizing the methods embraced in STEM education.
How can Project Based Learning change your classroom? Your students? Our interactive audio host, Dave Gamon, talks about the practice of embracing and utilizing context to promote the natural process of inquiry to empower students to take charge of their own learning, including a self diagnosis that saved a student’s life. He discusses the power of “Why” and its importance in creating a foundation for learning. Finally he unpacks how PBL aligns with standards and the steps for teachers to take to implement this practice in their classrooms.
Come join us as we explore how STEM practices and ideology fit into the K5 classroom. From ELA to history, STEM project-based learning and student inquiry can help students engage and take ownership of their learning. Hear from STEM teachers as well as classroom teachers about the practices and tools they use to engage students and create a classroom culture where all learners are welcomed and met where they are at. How do you assess skills and knowledge level in a STEM classroom? How do you handle the chaos that comes with a project-based learning environment? What tools are out there that offer greater learning opportunities and are worth the investment? What STEM practices can be implemented with no tools? Come listen in on what STEM could look like in the K5 classroom.
Where can STEM take a student? The sky is the limit with STEM! Our interactive audio host, Dave Gamon, interviews some rock star women of STEM in diverse fields of practice, covers the many diverse options for STEM careers, how the future of STEM education might look, computer science in the classroom and how to assist students to be successful in STEM.
What are all of the ways that STEM is applied in a student’s world? Here our interactive audio host, Dave Gamon, covers the many areas that STEM can interact in a student’s world including the “M” in STEM, applications in the STEM and non STEM classroom, how to work with Higher Education and Industry, both to inspire students in elementary and secondary classrooms as well as to promote a pathway for students to follow in pursuit of career goals. He also addresses STEM in remote learning situations and how to continue to engage students who are not in a traditional classroom. Finally, how to build your own STEM program by working with leadership in your district, school, etc. to develop vision, opportunities and pathways for your students and families.
Computer Science is everywhere and is utilized in so many career fields today and even more in the future. Come gain a familiarity with Computer Science in this module created in a collaboration with Whitworth University. Join our host, Dave Gamon, as he talks to experts in their fields about programming concepts, computational thinking, the internet and cybersecurity, data, program design, effective learning environments and more.
