Using Simulations to support computational thinking in your classroom
In this digital age, computational thinking is an essential skill for students and educators alike. This systematic approach to solving problems is at the foundation of math and science, not just computer science. Join us for this complimentary webinar where we will discuss how computational thinking can support student success in math and science through the use of online interactive simulations like Gizmos.
Special Guest Speakers: Matt Harris from International Ed Tech and Vincent Jansen from Denra Consulting
Date and Time: Monday, May 27 - 10:00 am EST
STEM inquiry teaching practices and the effect of mindset
Science and Math educators dream of classrooms where teachers encourage scientific inquiry and exploration, letting students draw their own conclusions rather than guiding them to an answer. Classrooms where teachers are facilitators that foster independent and creative thinking and exploration. In this presentation, you will discover how STEM educator mindsets can impact the adoption of more open and authentic forms of inquiry in classroom instruction and how STEM leaders’ feedback can support a growth mindset and develop true, concrete understanding of Math and Science.
Date and Time: Tuesday, May 14 - 9:00 pm EST
The Student Centered Classroom
Personalized technology offers us the opportunity to create learning experiences centered around the students, rather than the content. However, the tools and methods available for creating such learning are not fully understood by all teachers. In this complimentary webinar, we will talk about using technology to create an inclusive classroom, to differentiate learning, and to create personalized learning experiences. Further, we will help teachers understand the difference between these three concepts. Through a combination of instruction around the concepts and the use of Gizmos to show the concepts in action, teachers will come away with a rich understanding of student centered learning through technology. We may even jump into the world of flipped learning. Please join Matt Harris, Ed.D., an Educational Technology speaker and trainer from International EdTech and Suzanne Saraya, ExploreLearning Gizmos Expert, on this webinar to expand your understanding of technology and learning.
Date and Time: Wednesday, May 15 - 10:00 am EST
Enhancing the STEM curriculum with virtual simulations
Interactive online inquiry based simulations, such as Gizmos, are a perfect solution for schools looking for ways to enhance their STEM curriculum and build 21st century skills for students. ExploreLearning Gizmos help teachers take advantage of research-proven instructional strategies and let students of all ability levels develop deep conceptual understanding. Teachers can supplement and enhance instruction with powerful visualizations of science and mathematics concepts. Students can manipulate key variables, generate and test hypotheses, and engage in extensive “what-if” experimentation.
Date and Time: Thursday, May 16 - 11:00 am EST
Building a strong foundation with math fact fluency
Students who can automatically recall math facts are more capable problem solvers, learn new math skills more quickly, and are more likely to succeed in future math courses. Unfortunately, many students still spend too much time and brainpower on fundamental facts. Find out how to help students build a strong math fact fluency foundation and how to receive a Reflex Math grant for your class for an entire year.
