  • Teacher professional development
  • Teacher professional development
  • Teacher professional development/Students don’t have any idea of what engineers; make it important for why teachers should know it. You’re students might have trouble with… (explain in this approach to make it feel less direct or confrontational)
  • Tradeoffs optimization… design problem & solution with specifications and constraints (spaghetti noodle challenge—might be many types of bridgesCreativity multiple solutions. Distinction between scientific inquiry and engineering design. Systems thinking
  • Tradeoffs optimizationCreativitySystems thinking
  • Standards-based and developing knowledge. – The latter half is focused on reflection.. Explicit way that students interact with each other (embedded in the framework, engineering habits of mind)

  • WISEngineering is a technology-based learning environment that builds upon the Web-based Inquiry Science Environment from Berkeley, and scaffolds engineering design projects. STEM Engineering pedagogy: Use of engineering design as a context to motivate students to learn about math and science. Typically, students learn procedures or facts devoid of why they would ever have to use them. Engineering design pedagogy puts the learning of math and science skills and facts within engineering projects so that students are both motivated to learn the content and see a direct application of their learning. Specific learning is motivated when students engage in a design task with specifications and constraints based on targeted concepts.Knowledge and Skill Builders provide instruction and practice to complete the task within the projects.Student work serves as embedded assessments of knowledge integration – how well students are connecting ideas from the project and KSB’s. Embedded assessment happens throughout the project.Feedback can then be given by teachers, peers, and automatically by WISEngineering.

    2. 2. Overviewo Brief overview of WISEngineeringo Engineering Design Pedagogy – What is it?o Engineering Design Cycle – Step by Stepo Time to play! (WISE4 or WISEngineering)
    3. 3. WISEngineering Overview An innovative, free online learning environment Designed to improve STEM learning Builds upon WISE4 from UC - Berkeley Being Developed at UVA
    4. 4. National Frameworko Scientific Inquiry AND Engineering Designo What is engineering design?
    5. 5. Engineering Design Pedagogyo How is this different from inquiry? o Inquiry – research question, using data collection to come to some conclusion o Engineering design – problem to solve with certain specs and constraints, multiple solutions, divergent thinkingo Be mutually beneficial – inquiry spur design o One more access point – motivate, connect
    6. 6. Engineering Design Pedagogyo Just like there is no one Scientific Method o (See Nature of Science – Bell)o There is no one engineering design methodo We chose this to communicate to students o Engineers, teachers, educational researchers

    50. 50. WISEngineering o Uses Engineering pedagogy: learning occurs as students engage in a task with specifications and constraints o Design Tasks present students with a project to complete, embedded within a story (e.g., building a community center) o Knowledge and Skills builders provide the instruction and practice needed to complete the full design task o Student work serves as embedded assessments of knowledge integration and is collected throughout the tasks o A cyber-interface allows the delivery of a hybrid instructional model that incorporates both computer based learning and hands on work
