Watch this short film to learn how the Hartford high schoolers are digitizing and "printing" their town's history, and encouraging other students to explore technology at maker showcases like TechJam.

Now Showing @ ALA: Start your day with Shorts - Project-based Learning: STEM to STEAM with Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy Other Moscone Convention Center
123 (N)
Description :

In 2002, a school district in Goleta, California, attempted an experiment. They introduced DPEA, the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy, a program designed to teach twenty-first-century skills via project-based learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). They discovered that when they added "art" to the program (STEAM) that they attracted 50% more girls, and got better adoption from parents, mentors, the outside community, and students. DPEA allows students to explore one project a year, rotating through each aspect of the STEAM program. The Academy has been running for over ten years and is recognized as a pioneer in education reform, prizing independent thought and modern skills over standardized testing and book-based lectures. Here the students, teachers, and administrators tell us why it works. Learn about their cutting-edge robotics program, multidisciplinary approach, and the unique collaborations that happen between students, teachers, and parents.

Now Showing @ ALA: Start your day with Shorts - Visual Thinking Strategies Other Moscone Convention Center
123 (N)
Description :

What if teachers taught with questions rather than lectures? What if students were asked to reflect instead of regurgitate? Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) challenges the standard model of teaching by encouraging a reflection-and-response style of learning. Designed by art educator Philip Yenawine and developmental psychologist Abigail Housen, VTS relies on children's natural ability to observe, using imagery as the starting point for learning. The teacher asks open-ended questions; students reflect and respond. The process has been proven to strengthen critical thinking skills, language development, confidence, and collaboration. Watch VTS at work in three Louisiana schools and find out what alternative teaching methods like these might have in store for America's classrooms.
