 “What I loved most about being a teacher were my students. I loved how their faces lit up when they finally understood something, the sheer excitement for learning, or just the simple day-to-day connections.” ~Phonna Blanco, Family Engagement Lead for a school district in California.

NSF STEM for All Showcase Goes Live May 11-18, 2021

For one week, starting Monday, May 11-18th, the STEM for All Showcase, highlighting various NSF-funded projects advancing STEM education, will be fully activated for engagement. This is a great way to see thinking in action and the interesting projects going on across the globe.
Check the IC4 research team’s video May 11-18th… you may want to visit periodically, contribute to the comments and ask questions. The comments will only be live during this week and archived for the future.

Research on an International Network for STEM Media Making and Student-Led Participatory Teaching

NSF Awards: 1612824

How does collaborative STEM project-based learning change when the participating students represent fundamentally distinct cultures, countries, economic, and social backgrounds, and work together over synchronous and asynchronous internet settings? All the more timely during the current pandemic, the IC4 (ic4.site) projects seeks to understand and shape such learning through international and cross-cultural collaboration.  The project continues to expand intellectually and geographically.

Does the use of videoconferencing in such STEM project-based learning settings alter intersubjectivity or shared meaning in ways that might have broad social impact?

Differences in where people live and in our cultures factor deeply into social and economic fractures in US and global society. Can students working together across such boundaries experience virtual presence and shared meaning-making through project collaborations in ways that allow deeper appreciation of each other’s differences, and reduce such fractures?

Does such collaboration from the context and comfort of one’s own cultural settings helped to neutralize anxiety and distrust of others, and in ways that are promising for the next generation learning settings that will feature more abundant international collaboration at middle and secondary school levels?

Featuring students who collaborate with one another from sites in the US, Kenya, Mexico, and Brazil, the IC4 (International Community for Collaborative Content Creation) project explores the intersection of learning, culture, and collaboration. Supported by NSF’s AISL Program, the project provides an international, collaborative, and digital makerspace that explores these questions and seeks to understand how student learning changes when collaborating teams identify themselves as teachers seeking to help peers understand STEM topics.

An NSF Project
This project, supporting students who collaborate in digital makerspaces in six countries, is funded by the Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) program of the US National Science Foundation (NSF) Award #1612824.


Also, check out other projects in the Showcase, at least two or three, and provide some comments to them. Dialogue and exchange adds to our awareness of innovations in our learning landscape.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ April 30

 

“… the original decision about how to use computers placed the teacher on a collision course with School’s system of control: As soon as she (the teacher) decided not to control the students, she took away School’s established way of controlling her. The question has moved from how power is distributed within the educational hierarchy to whether hierarchy to whether hierarchy is an appropriate mode of organization for education.”

~Seymour Papert, The Children’s Machine: Rethinking school in the age of the computer, 1993

Flannery O’Connor, On Her Own Work…

From my own experience in trying to make stories “work”, I have discovered that what is needed is an action that is totally unexpected, yet totally believable, and I have found that, for me, this is always an action which indicates that grace has been offered.  And frequently it is an action in which the devil has been the unwilling instrument of grace.”
