3D@NSTA STAT Presents: 3-D Thinking

George R. Brown Convention Center - 310B

This session will introduce participants to the three dimensions of “3-D thinking”—from the origin of the dimension to how integrating the three dimensions supports all students in learning science. Gain experience using resources that guide decision-making in the selection, revision, and/or development of lessons designed for “3-D thinking."

Takeaways: 1. Identify the three dimensions of “3-D thinking”; 2. Increase understanding of the three dimensions, including how the three dimensions increase in complexity from K to 12; and 3. Gain experience in how integrating the three dimensions supports all students in learning science.
