Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Target Audience (Elementary, Secondary, Other): 
Elementary Grade Teachers, Middle Grade Teachers, Coaches/Leaders

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Participants will:
- understand what STEM/STEAM is and why it is important to integrate into the classroom
- learn about STEM/STEAM tools that will be equitable for integration and student-centered learning.
- working in groups and individual participants will participate in a STEM technology playground with different lesson examples.
- participants will have access to an infographic with hyperdocs.

Participants will be introduced to STEAM/STEM and its importance in being an integral part of the 21st-century classroom. We will learn the first layer of a STEM/STEAM Culture classroom by looking at the 4 Cs. We will be introduced to free STEM tools and resources to enhance student learning. We will learn how to build wonder, establish challenges, spark interest all while solving a problem. Participants will be introduced to free STEM resources that include lessons that meet standards.

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Participants will need a mobile device to interact; phone, ipad, laptop. I will deliver via a chromebook and smartboard (a remote if available). I will model how participants are to interact with the different STEM/STEAM lessons. There will be at least one group e and at least one individual lesson.
