Participate and share : Poster
Sunday, November 29, 11:00 am–12:00 pm PST (Pacific Standard Time)
K-2 science shouldn’t make you feel like you are spinning out of control! Come see how science can be successful when taught in a digital format. Walk away realizing that even though classrooms may be chaotic, a digital minute (or five!) can lead to a mastery of science concepts!

K-2 educations are not adding enough science content to their day (especially critical thinking skills)
Using digitally delivered solutions like Science4Us can provide simple and fast lessons that follow ISTE and state science standards
Educators will learn like students and then design their own lesson plans
Educators will be given an opportunity to dive deep into fun and engaging science investigations for K-2 students using Science4Us
Educators will walk away with specific lessons they can use immediately with their students!
Content and activities:
Educators will experience a set of virtual investigations just like their students would and use critical thinking and problem solving skills to communicate results.
Time: This session can be 60 minutes to 90 minutes in total, so educators will have ample time to learn the virtual investigation skills and then navigate how easy it is to implement the lessons themselves.
Well, I cannot give away all my secrets, but I am a student at heart, so as Dave Burgess says, "If your students [ISTE attendees] did not have to be there, would you be teaching to an empty room?" I hope not! My passion always seems to put on a great "show!"
This presentation will share information from several studies including, but not limited to McRel (Denver), University of California-Irving, Pennsylvania State University, National Center for Education Statistics, National Geographic Learning, North Carolina State University. Statements also provided by Broward County Public School (Florida) Title 1 School Principals, Coaches and Teachers.
