STRAND: Continuing Effective Distance Learning Strategies Post-COVID

Show Details

Explore using the SEPs to make remote STE instruction inquiry based. Participate in a remote hands-on investigation. Receive a toolkit of resources, strategies, and instructional tools.

Materials needed:

  • Markers or crayons
  • Large sheet of heavy weight paper (11x17 or 8.5 x14)
  • 4–6 ice cubes all about the same size
  • 4 paper cups big enough to hold 2 ice cubes
  • Cooler or access to freezer to keep ice frozen
  • Aluminum tray
  • Black or white tray (take-out container will work)

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Leave with a toolkit of distance-learning practices and investigations to enhance students’ use of the SEPs; 2. Learn about distance-learning tools that support the engagement of all students in STE; and 3. Develop new ideas for performance-based assessments using distance-learning strategies.

Engagement Strategies and Resources for Remote and Face-to-Face Instruction

Wednesday, April 21 • 4:00 PM - 4:45 PM

STRAND: Continuing Effective Distance Learning Strategies Post-COVID

Show Details

Participants explore strategies and resources for engaging students during face-to-face and virtual instruction. Equity, differentiation, and nonlinguistic representations of instruction and learning will be targeted.

TAKEAWAYS:
Attendees will: 1. learn research-based strategies that increase student engagement so that all students are involved in the learning process; 2. learn new ways to increase the confidence of learners who may be reluctant to engage in classroom activities and discussions; and 3. obtain numerous activities, templates, games, resources, etc. they can use with their students. These can be used “as is” or modified to include other content based on the needs of the attendees.

STRAND: Continuing Effective Distance Learning Strategies Post-COVID

Show Details

My NASA Data will model interactive resources for students learning in-person and via virtual environments that feature short activities, lessons, and access to NASA data.

TAKEAWAYS:
Participants will: 1. walk away with access to NASA resources for their Earth science classrooms that can be linked directly to their learning management systems; 2. learn of interactive strategies for using these resources with students in a variety of learning environments; and 3. learn of an Earth science data visualization tool that enables students/educators to access and visualize NASA data for a particular region or time period.
