STRAND: Adapting Virtual Learning to Increase Access and Participation in a Face-to-Face Classroom

Show Details

This session is designed to help teachers deepen their understanding of the effective and practical strategies needed to facilitate a successful science fair competition or symposium in either a face-to-face or hybrid environment. Participants will be provided with a variety of instructional strategies and free curriculum materials to ensure that all students have access to a social learning platform that will encourage opportunities to collaborate with peers and mentors through intentional planning. The instructional strategies used in this presentation will promote student engagement, differentiation, and scientific understanding to help form a more inclusive learning environment within the classroom and within the district community.

TAKEAWAYS:
--Participants will experience a variety of impactful instructional strategies that promote authentic scientific research and presentation to promote access to equitable future opportunities for students regarding college and/or career endeavors

Building a Better ADI Understanding: Using Student-Created Avatars to Explain Past Scientist Experiences with ADI

Thursday, July 21 • 5:10 PM - 5:40 PM

McCormick Place - W176a


STRAND: Adapting Virtual Learning to Increase Access and Participation in a Face-to-Face Classroom

Show Details

This presentation reviews students researching and presenting on past ADI events in science through the creation of scientist avatars.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. This session highlights the use of a classroom-tested assignment where students are asked to create a personal avatar where they are pretending to be the actual scientist; and 2. The assignment works well to show actual ADI events that explain how science changes over time.

STRAND: Adapting Virtual Learning to Increase Access and Participation in a Face-to-Face Classroom

Show Details

In this session we will look somewhat in-depth at what it takes to teach science students in the outdoors, how digital tools can facilitate that learning, and how to connect that learning to a variety of the NGSS and the 3 dimensions of science instruction. We will first look at creating a learning space for students in the outdoors, namely what spaces can be used, and how to make sure students are learning and safe in the outdoors. We will then focus on how to teach and manage students while outside in a variety of outdoor learning environments, hopefully helping them to connect with nature and inspire stewardship for nature in ALL places. As we look at some examples of lessons and ideas that can be used while teaching in the outdoors we will also point out the ways that this type of teaching and learning connect with NGSS and the 3 dimensions of science instruction. We will also look at how digital tools can be used to facilitate this outdoor learning, whether it is face-to-face learning, hybrid learning, or fully online learning. This session will hopefully be able to be conducted outside and in a very hands-on way.

TAKEAWAYS:
We will take a look at using outdoor learning spaces for your students, namely how to find spaces and build a great outdoor learning environment, how to teach and manage students safely while outside, and what digital tools can be used to facilitate that learning.
