Wednesday, March 03, 2021 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM   iCalendar

The Framework for P-12 Engineering Learning has been published as a practical guide for developing coherent, authentic, and equitable engineering learning initiatives/programs across schools. This guide includes a definition of the three-dimensions of engineering learning, principles for guiding pedagogical practice, and common learning goals toward achieving engineering literacy for all.

Accordingly, this ITEEA STEMinar will:

  • Provide a brief introduction to the contents of the framework.
  • Explore how the highlighted engineering concepts/pedagogical approaches compliment and support Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy to influence more immediate and purposeful instructional practice.
  • Examine ways in which how this framework has been used in high schools to provide increased relevance and rigor into the Career & Technical Education pathways.
  • Highlight instructional materials (i.e., engineering performance matrices and sample lesson plans) to teach engineering, with increased sophistication over time, within socially-relevant and culturally-situated contexts.

This STEMinar is free for ALL!
