Nurturing More Expert Ways For Thinking About Climate Change, Flossie S. G. Chua May 2018

Nurturing More Expert Ways For Thinking About Climate Change, Flossie S. G. Chua

ICOT 18 - International Conference on Thinking - Cultivating Mindsets for Global Citizens

Contemporary developments have forced a challenging shift in the way we think about what matters most to learn. As traditional systems of learning are substantially challenged and reshaped, consensus is building around the importance of educating learners for grappling insightfully and productively with complex issues that are often controversial. Drawing on research that looked at the character of expertise across multiple disciplines, including an in-depth qualitative study comparing expert and novice understanding of climate change, this workshop will invite participants to explore critical considerations for curricular design if they are to nurture the kinds of thinking that will stand learners ...

Learning To Think...Thinking To Learn, James C. Dean Mr., Julie Pfeiffer, Nancy Famulari, Julia Connett, Briana Kaparis

ICOT 18 - International Conference on Thinking - Cultivating Mindsets for Global Citizens

How do you create a systemic school culture of THINKING? In this interactive presentation learn how 3 Miami-Dade schools are using a set of consistent visual tools to teach critical, creative THINKING and communication to all learners. This session will capitalize on connecting the visuals to the latest brain research and its implications on the developmental needs of PreK-Adult learners. Examples of practice will be highlighted by these schools.

ICOT 18 - International Conference on Thinking - Cultivating Mindsets for Global Citizens

Desde el curso 2011-2012, el Departamento de Matemáticas del colegio La Vall utiliza un libro digital elaborado por profesoras del mismo colegio. Lo que hace de este hecho un hecho de mención es el curso donde se utiliza; estamos hablando de 2o de Bachillerato, el último curso de enseñanza no obligatorio antes de acceder a las pruebas que les permiten entrar a estudiar un grado en la Universidad. “Fica-te-les a la butxaca”1 es un libro virtual interactivo que pretende ofrecer a nuestras alumnas un recurso didáctico motivador, por su formato y funcionalidad interactiva, así como por estar basado en ...

Eclipse Ballooning Stem Outreach For Elementary, Middle, And High School Education, Peter Henson, Fnu Anamika, Denise Buckner, Marissa Saad, Caitlin Nolby

2017 Academic High Altitude Conference

To promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education through ballooning, the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) organizes an annual Near-Space Balloon Competition (NSBC) for students in grades 6 - 12. Students across the state of North Dakota have the opportunity to launch experiments into a near- space environment. The students learn how to write proposals, design payloads, and analyze data. They learn through an active, inquiry-based style that will prepare them for real-world engineering and critical thinking jobs. In 2016, NSBC proposed Great American Eclipse as the theme for the competition, thus the students were focused on designing heliocentric ...
