We received this announcement recently and want to encourage teachers to consider participating in this research. You need to teach three lessons from or within the tool this year. It is NearPod like in it’s interactive structures.
If you do join, tell us what you learn and if you recommend this tool for other teachers!
I’m Seijin from PlayPosit. I’m spearheading our research grant in conjunction with the National Science Foundation (NSF) and leading research professors.
I am excited to announce the release of AdaptivePosit, PlayPosit’s brainchild to increase student engagement featuring a pre-built curriculum that adapts videos to each student’s proficiency level.
We are seeking middle school science teachers who would like to receive AdaptivePosit for free. We are looking for participants who are
- simultaneously enthusiastic about incorporating technology into their science curriculum and
- willing to participate in our Phase II user study.
If this sounds like you, or someone you know, fill out this 3-field form to receive free access to our first unit, Structures of Matter, a 12-video-lesson unit, ready-to-use in your classroom. We will follow up with you shortly to help you get started.
To expand our reach helping teachers develop computational literacies — from coding to physical computing and data crunching — we have begun partnering with organizations that provide high quality K-12 curriculum in Computer Science (CS) fields.
Teachers can learn curriculum designed in a partnership between the Computer Science Teachers’ Association (CSTA) and Zulama by EMC School, and earn a graduate credit through St.Kate’s. The course is aligned with student curriculum, and could be taken as part of a more in-depth dive into CS education with additional courses offered online at St.Kate’s.
Together, we can better help students get the knowledge and skills they need to be citizens and creators in this new economy.
Many thanks to the team at Zulama and CSTA for creating this partnership for the greater good!
Contact Dr. Anderson to learn more about how you or your organization can join in this expanding network of organizations committed to building the common good and sharing the power of computational literacies with all.
Many thanks to talented alum and dedicated St. Paul teacher Dani Imbertson for sharing her experience of learning at St. Catherine University!
Alum: Remember you can use the Refer-a-Katie benefit to pass on a $300 scholarship to a teacher you refer to the program!
