Videos Connecting Math and Science to the Real World
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology developed BLOSSOMS (Blended Learning Open Source Science or Math Studies) to help students engage in a meaningful way with STEM subjects. BLOSSOMS uses freevideosegments to build on math and science fundamentals by relating abstract concepts to the real world. Educators and professionals contribute their knowledge and learning to an open database that anyone can access. Every 50-minute lesson is a complete resource that includes video segments, a teacher’s guide, downloadable handouts, and a list of additional online resources relevant to the topic. BLOSSOMS uses a “teaching duet pedagogy” model, in which a teacher will help students solve problems before passing the baton to another teacher for a brief video lesson.
Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in December.
Made for iOS 12 by Designmate, Brainapse is an engaging and informative learning app that uses augmented reality (AR) to help students explore the anatomy, structure, and functions of the human skull and brain and explains the evolution of the human brain and its way of working.
Each school year, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) awards grants of up to $500 to worthy projects that significantly influence student learning, and inspire and advance the future of aerospace. AIAA’s Classroom Grant Program encourages development of innovative aerospace activities within the prescribed curriculum.
