  1. Career Readiness Through STEM STEM, PBL, and CCSS: Different sides of the same coin David Stockman, Product Manager

  2. Objectives • Understand background on STEM and PBL • Understand need for STEM education and Project-Based Learning as a delivery system • Understand interrelationships between STEM, PBL, and CCSS • Understand connection between PBL and current/future careers David Stockman, Product Manager

  3. Science, Technology, Engineering, Math Why STEM? David Stockman, Product Manager

  4. Why STEM? • Economy • National interest/competitiveness • Jobs • Education • Pervasiveness of Technology • 21st Century Skills David Stockman, Product Manager

  5. Why not STEM? • $$

  6. Importance of STEM David Stockman, Product Manager

  9. Project-Based Learning Why pbl? David Stockman, Product Manager

  10. Project-Based Learning Buck Institute for Learning David Stockman, Product Manager

  11. Project-Based Learning • Significant Content – Goals derived from content standards, “What do you want students to know or do?” • Driving Question – Requires critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and communication • In-Depth Inquiry – Constructing student-driven learning David Stockman, Product Manager

  12. Project-Based Learning • Need to Know – Just in Time, not Just in Case. Provides context and reason to learn (see Dan Meyer) • Voice and Choice – Increase engagement, take responsibility • Revision and Reflection – Improve products based on feedback, metacognition • Public Audience – Ups the stakes, makes it “real” David Stockman, Product Manager

  13. Successful PBL Characteristics • Collaborative project-based learning • Teacher development and leadership • Technology integration David Stockman, Product Manager

  14. Effective PBL David Stockman, Product Manager

  16. PBL is Successful! David Stockman, Product Manager

  17. 3 Act Math David Stockman, Product Manager

  18. 101questions David Stockman, Product Manager

  19. Common Core State Standards and the new assessments Common Core and Smarter Balanced David Stockman, Product Manager

  20. David Stockman, Product Manager

  21. Common Core State Standards The standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education careers so that they will graduate high school able to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses and in workforce training programs. • Basically, so students are College and Career ready David Stockman, Product Manager

  22. Key Points - ELA Media and Technology • Just as media and technology are integrated in school and life in the twenty-first century, skills related to media use (both critical analysis and production of media) are integrated throughout the standards. David Stockman, Product Manager

  23. The Curriculum House David Stockman, Product Manager

  24. Building to Code David Stockman, Product Manager

  25. Floor Plans David Stockman, Product Manager

  26. Style of House David Stockman, Product Manager

  27. Common Core Assessments • Students will need technology skills for the new assessments • Interacting with the question and creating answer • NAEP writing scores show students don’t have a handle on writing with technology • But those who did, scored better • Students need fluency in technology skills so the technology is not an obstacle for the student to demonstrate their knowledge David Stockman, Product Manager

  28. SBAC Item Types • Selected-response • Technology-enhanced • Constructed-response • Performance tasks David Stockman, Product Manager

  29. Selected Response Item David Stockman, Product Manager CCSS

  30. Technology-enhanced Item Gregory is installing tile on a rectangular floor. • He is using congruent square tiles that each have a side length of ½ foot • The area of the floor is 22 square feet. • The width of the floor is 4 feet. Use the grid and the tile below to model the floor. What is the length, in feet, of the floor? David Stockman, Product Manager

  31. Constructed-Response Items A teacher asked her students to use estimation to decide if the sum of the problem below is closer to 4,000 or 5,000. 496 + 1,404 + 2,605 + 489 = One student replied that she thinks the sum is closer to 4,000. She used the estimation shown below to support her reasoning. Is the student’s reasoning correct? In the space below, use numbers and words to explain why or why not. If the student’s reasoning is not correct, explain how she should have estimated. David Stockman, Product Manager

  43. STEM at Careers: • Software Architect • Software Developer • QA Engineer • Technical Product Manager • Database Administrator • IT Web Operations Manager

  44. How did your K-12 education prepare you for your profession? “With the math (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry) that I took in k-12, I was able to study electronics and computer programming from books and subsequently secure jobs beginning as an Electronics Technician and within 4 years, as a digital logic hardware design engineer in Aerospace (1967). I've since relied on my Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry to write successful computer programs in 3-D Graphics, numerical machine control and in many other industries.”

  45. How do you integrate STEM disciplines in your job? “I frequently use knowledge gained in Physics and Math to understand and solve customer and business problems using computers to capture, organize, consume and transmit information.” “In practicing quantitative and qualitative analysis of data and user experiences, I employ technology tools to calculate raw numbers and produce results.”

  46. What advice would you give students who may want to pursue a career in your field? “Learn how to program. It exercises your brain in all the right ways to practice breaking large problems into small problems (that's really the core of engineering), use math in very practical ways, and let loose your artistic impulses.” “Learn as much math, physics and computer science as possible. With that basis, opportunities will open to you that others don’t even recognize as an opportunity.”

  47. What advice would you give educators in preparing students for a career in your field? “A strong foundation in math and science and the willingness to work hard are by far the most important assets.” “Being willing to dig with persistence, practice appreciative inquiry, and learn through rapid prototyping (and failing fast, early, and often) will produce the kinds of minds we need in the future to comprehend the true problem before discovering the optimal solution.”

  48. Project Based Learning (PBL) emphasizes a complex question, problem, or challenge for students. How is this like the work you do in your job? “Engineers practice PBL all day long, every day. We are constantly learning by doing, and the doing involves breaking down complex problems into solvable chunks. Humans are natural engineers. ” “The ability to effect successful projects is far more important now and in the future than task completion skills! ” “Often, the stated problem doesn't represent the entire story being told, but rather is a person's best guess. Investigating, researching, uncovering, discovering, validating, and restating the problem requires patience, persistence, and curiosity.”
