21st Century Reasoning Modalities In Interdisciplinary Stem Education, Bryan Gallant Apr 2016

21st Century Reasoning Modalities In Interdisciplinary Stem Education, Bryan Gallant

Georgia Southern University Research Symposium

The overarching goal of the Institute for Interdisciplinary STEM Education (iå_STEMe) at Georgia Southern University is to improve student engagement and learning outcomes in STEM courses through immersion in authentic, real-world, problem-based and place-based educational settings. To accomplish this goal, iå_STEMe has partnered with 10 middle and high schools located in Georgia to incorporate a series of reasoning modalities developed to meet the requirements of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to develop STEM literate citizens capable of making informed decisions, and to open up opportunities to fill the growing need for STEM professionals. The reasoning modalities developed are Complex ...

Role Play In Large Enrollment Stem, Mary Kay Cassani, Andrew Wilkinson Mar 2016

Role Play In Large Enrollment Stem, Mary Kay Cassani, Andrew Wilkinson

SoTL Commons Conference

Higher education is increasingly focused on raising class sizes as a point of economy. Engaging non-science majors in STEM courses can be challenging in large enrollment classes. Active learning strategies such as role playing can be particularly effective in large classes. Role playing is a familiar activity for students, from video games to Ren fairs, from tabletop games to cosplay. Using role playing activities that employ small-group collaboration can humanize complex topics, immerse students in the learning process, and help create ownership of knowledge. While more common in business, medical and social sciences, role playing can easily be incorporated in ...

National Youth-At-Risk Conference Savannah

This dynamic presentation from award winning; Kaija Spencer will provide the foundation from which education is based . The definition of S.T.E.M. will be discussed. And provide a complete outline of how a traditional school changed from the traditional 6 subject schedule to a school that embraces the full integration of all subjects throughout the entire school day. Participants will understand how to start the process of changing the instructional plan of a school by first building a team, have realistic SMART (Specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound) goals, and a strategic and systematic plan for implementation.

“At-Risk” Rural Middle-School Students’ Perceptions Of Problem-Based Learning In Mathematics, Deborah A. Bowers Jan 2016

“At-Risk” Rural Middle-School Students’ Perceptions Of Problem-Based Learning In Mathematics, Deborah A. Bowers

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Middle-grade students who fail math have at least a three-in-four chance of dropping out of high school (Neild & Balfanz, 2006). Furthermore, these students, especially female students, at risk of failure in mathematics and consequent dropout, may not be well served by traditional teaching methods because of their inequitable instructional practices (Lerner & Sadker, 1999). This case study of eight seventh-grade students from a rural school in Georgia sought to gain insight into whether PBL (problem-based learning) was perceived to be an effective teaching method for “at-risk” middle-school mathematics students and female students in particular. The goals of the study were to ...
