STEAM and 21st Century Skills in Science Learning

  1. 1. Alpha Science K-5 Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  2. 2. Agenda STEAM and 21st Century Skills in Science Learning Implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  3. 3. Target audience • Passionate science teachers relatively new to the NGSS
  4. 4. ROAD MAP • STEP 1- ACTIVATE THE SCHEMA • WHAT: Activating schema is a concept that revolves around accessing the individual learner's prior knowledge of the information being learned
  5. 5. ROAD MAP • STEP 2- Apply the knowledge and build new knowledge • What: Engineering Design Process in Action • How: STEAM Connections Hands-on!
  6. 6. ROAD MAP • STEP 3 – Plenary – Recap Main Ideas
  7. 7. As a table group jot down any three things that you already know about the NGSS Any one thing that you would like to know more about the NGSS Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global ACTIVATE THE SCHEMA
  8. 8. Essential Question Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global What do Thinking Classrooms Look Like?
  9. 9. What are “Thinking Classrooms”?
  10. 10. The Paradigm Shift • Moving away from teacher “driven” • Supporting students through the creative struggle of understanding how the world works • Student Provocations • Sustained Inquiry-based approach Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  11. 11. Table Task • Your goal as a team is to design and create a paper plane that will fly the farthest. • Non-Negotiables: • Every member has to create one model. • At your table you have to test the different models and choose the one best model. • At the end of 10 minutes one person from each team will come forward to fly the plane. • The team that creates the model that flies the farthest wins! Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  12. 12. Two-dimensional to Three-dimensional Curriculum and Instruction
  13. 13. Two-dimensional versus Three-dimensional Coverage-centered Idea-centered “inch deep, mile wide” facts provide a foundation to understand conceptual, transferable ideas. Intellectually shallow Intellectual depth lacks a conceptual focus -a “conceptual lens,” or focus, requires to create a factual/ mental processing on the factual and conceptual brain synergy conceptual levels—producing intellectual depth in thinking and understanding. Dr. Lynn Erickson
  14. 14. Understanding Concepts Dr. Lynn Erickson
  15. 15. Concept… A concept is an organizing idea; a mental construct that is ... | Timeless ; Universal | Abstract (to different degrees) | Represented by 1 or 2 words Dr.S Govindswamy Sunder
  16. 16. Understanding The three dimensions of the NGSS Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  17. 17. What Students Understand KUD Model K- Know U-Understand D-Do (Dr. Lynn Erickson, 2012) Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  18. 18. Disciplinary Core Ideas
  19. 19. Scientific and Engineering Practices
  20. 20. Crosscutting Concepts Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  21. 21. NGSS Crosscutting Statements (Energy and Matter) • K-2- Objects may break into smaller pieces, be put together into larger pieces, or change shapes. • 3-5- Energy can be transferred in various ways and between objects. • 6-8- Energy may take different forms (eg: energy in fields, thermal energy, energy of motion) • 9-12- Students understand that...Energy cannot be created or destroyed- only moves between one place and another place, between objects and/or fields, or between systems. Dr.S Govindswamy Sunder
  22. 22. Engineering Design Cycle Think and function like Engineers How does this look like in our classrooms? Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  23. 23. Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  24. 24. Lets do it! What is your task? • With the given materials, your challenge is to design and build the tallest free- standing Tower in Japan! • Marshmellows • Straws • Toothpicks • Tape • Scissors (tool) Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  25. 25. Prototype Materials • 20 Straws • 10 Marshmallows • Toothpicks • Tape and Scissors Dr. Sudha Govindswamy Sunder
  26. 26. ESS2B: Plate tectonics and large-scale system interactions • K-2: Maps show where things are located. One can map the shapes and kinds of land and water in any area. • 6-8: Plate tectonics is the unifying theory that explains movements of rocks at Earth’s surface and geological history. Maps are used to display evidence of plate movement. • 9-12: Radioactive decay within Earth’s interior contributes to thermal convection in the mantle. INCREASING SOPHISTICATION OF STUDENT THINKING Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  27. 27. Dr.S Govindswamy Sunder
  28. 28. Learning versus Doing Science - Engineering Design Process Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  29. 29. Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  30. 30. • What was a problem that you had in the construction of your tower? • How did you solve this problem? • If you had to build the tower with paper instead of straws how would that change your design? Why? Engineering Design Cycle Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
  31. 31. Engineering Design Process • ASK: What is the problem? How have others approached it? What are your constraints? • IMAGINE: What are some solutions? Brainstorm ideas. Choose the best one. • PLAN: Draw a diagram. Make lists of materials you will need. • CREATE: Follow your plan and create something. Test it out! • IMPROVE: What works? What doesn't? What could work better? Modify your design to make it better. Test it out! Dr. SSunder Associate Consultant KDSL Global
