AMPing up STEM Instruction with 3D Printing

This webcast will present an integrated STEM middle school curriculum that utilizes 3-D printing, Math and Science concepts and practices through a Problem Based Learning experience. We will discuss 3-D printing solutions that are best suited for use in classrooms and focus on safety, ease of operation, and most importantly quality of product. The curriculum is designed by Georgia Tech’s Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing as part of the NSF funded AMP-IT-UP project and utilized the Stratasys uPrint series printers for student product production for testing.

Student Access: Keeping It Safe To Click

Today’s schools have an unprecedented opportunity to provide K-12 students with access to new and enriched personalized learning experiences through collaboration tools, web-based materials and nearly unlimited information. Engaging in these expansive new educational opportunities comes with a level of responsibility to truly keep students safe when they’re online. For teachers and parents, it’s a delicate balance of providing access to online tools and information with the need to keep them safe from inappropriate web-based content and online behavior. Although web filtering helps shield students from harmful online content, you can’t protect kids purely through application of technology. An effective approach also requires helping students understand and learn appropriate behaviors when they’re on the Internet; about learning how to be a good digital citizen.

Using IBM SPSS Statistics to Facilitate College and Career Readiness

To be college and career ready, students must have proficiency in academic content, skills in technology and research, and dispositions that would prepare them for any post-secondary path. Important skills like using data to solve problems and employing technology tools to produce and present information permeate across grade levels. To assist in this work, IBM SPSS Statistics, an industry leader for over 40 years, can be integrated into curricula and prepare students with technology skills that are being used in every sector of the workforce today. In this webcast, attendees will see examples of how IBM SPSS Statistics can be used in STEM courses and for research to facilitate development of relevant skills. So whether students are enrolling in a post-secondary institution or entering the workforce, they will be ready!


Maine Township Innovates To Deliver Cloud-Based Infrastructure for Teaching & Learning

The widespread use of mobile devices on campuses and the need for more personalized learning are changing how students learn and how classes are taught. Educational institutions and school districts are eager to implement the latest technology, but typically do not have significant infrastructure and funding resources available and schools are looking for solutions to modernize and move teaching and learning into the digital world.
