The landscape of education has increasingly become more standards-based and driven by accountability of student achievement. In the 21st century the stakes are high and educators are challenged to raise the bar for all students. Moreover, as females and under-represented groups become the majority population in public schools, students increasingly need to be actively engaged in learning STEM content if they plan to be gainfully employed in the 21st century workforce.
This professional development webinar will create connections to the 1pm ET virtual field trip from the Museum of Science. We will focus on STEM awareness, standards, implications, challenges, and opportunities to inspire our students in the 21st century. Participants will be introduced to a few best practices to improve the pipeline of STEM literate students, specifically technology and engineering and how it connects with science and mathematics education.
