Innovation Spotlights: Professional Learning Resources to Assist Schools with Leveraging Technology to Improve STEM Instruction
With funding from the Office of Educational Technology of the U.S. Department of Education, this project is “spotlighting” a variety of strategies for leveraging digital technology to support STEM learning.
To provide tangible examples of different strategies for using digital technology to support STEM learning, Digital Promise is examining practices at a diverse set of schools from across the country to identify exemplary implementation of research-based teaching and learning strategies that it will document in a set of video cases.
Based on its systematic review of the learning sciences literature, Digital Promise identified a set of innovative and effective strategies for supporting K-12 STEM learning with digital technology. Schools that are implementing one or more of the strategies well are being selected for video spotlights. The spotlight videos, instructional resources related to the activities shown in the videos, and a rubric for evaluating use of technology to support STEM learning will be made available to the public through the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Educational Technology website.
