Transforming STEM Education from a Noun to a Verb, Part One | Tech & Learning

Let’s take a moment and investigate the STEM acronym, after-all it is being used quite a bit across the United States and the world. Often we hear the content areas; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math as being the basis of STEM. While this is a wonderful collection of nouns that can be used to put together a cross-curricular, transdisciplinary, or project based learning unit of study; it seems to leave out many of the other disciplines through this content definition. By focusing just on these four areas we are losing the powerful and authentic learning opportunities that STEM thinking can bring to the classroom.  In fact, we are also leaving some of the most important teachers from other subject areas  out of the equation, or the limited definition does not make them feel a part of an exciting possibility!  Perhaps that is why we see schools and districts adopting STEAM (infuse the arts), and STREAM (add on some Reading. As we see these new models perhaps we should turn it into STREAMIE (include everyone), from there we can go to STREAMIER and STREAMIEST! Better yet, how about STREAMING… wow… it’s a verb! While the idea could make everyone smile, let’s take a look at what STEM might and could actually look like if we facilitated and promoted and all-inclusive subject area model.

Zoom, Echo Frames, Spatial, Magic Leap, Web Meetings, and Synchronous Online Learning

Why face-to-face meetings are still sometimes what is needed, and what this may tell us about the future of online education.

September 30, 2019

This week, I had one of those uncomfortable realizations that cause me to question my ability to make sense of the world. My latest revelation that everybody else already knows – and which I seem to be the last to grasp – is that sometimes face-to-face discussions are better than online meetings.

That’s right. I had an experience this week where an in-person meeting was superior to a discussion on Zoom.

It turns out that some discussions are better held in a shared physical location. Zoom is still not able to capture the subtleties of body language or substitute for the interpersonal bonding that comes with meeting face-to-face.

High fidelity collaboration, particularly among humans who don’t yet know each other, seems to require more bandwidth than even the most crystal clear of video and audio feeds.

Does this mean that we will be consigned to a lifetime of travel by airplane, train, bus, or car to attend face-to-face meetings?

As an online learning evangelist, how worried should I be about the seemingly insurmountable advantage that geographic co-existence seems to enjoy over collaboration at a distance?

In this same week that I was having my uncomfortable realization that some collaborations are poorly optimized for distance, Amazon decided to release the Echo Frames.

U Wyoming Spurs Blockchain Development with Hackathon ‘Stampede’ — Campus Technology

David Brodosi higheredFor the second year, the University of Wyoming has hosted a multi-challenge hackathon focused on blockchain. The “Blockchain Stampede,” part of the university’s College of Engineering and Applied Science WyoHackathon, is intended to help highlight the state’s commitment to blockchain technology.

During the 2018-2019 legislative session, the state passed 13 separate blockchain bills, covering property rights, banking services, authorized custodians for digital assets and setup of “sandboxes” for financial innovators. Shortly after, state officials reported that 200 new companies had registered in Wyoming with names indicating their involvement in blockchain technology. Various blockchain courses have been introduced at the university, and its money-raising foundation is among the first to accept donations in bitcoin.

Supporting Underprepared Students in the Online Classroom

David BrodosiEngaging students through a computer screen requires a unique approach to pedagogy and innovative course design.  The feeling of “getting it right” typically involves a good deal of testing and modification given the wide array of design formats and technology tools available, not to mention the varying needs of students, many of whom are underprepared for online learning (Bettinger & Loeb, 2017).

Common Student Challenges

In online courses, certain student challenges tend to come up time and again, which disrupts learning or impedes completing coursework on time. Some of these behavior profiles include:

  • Ghosting, students who disappear entirely or who don’t reach out to the instructor, even when they are performing poorly
  • Students for whom everything is seemingly negotiable, including due dates
  • Students who wait until the last minute to complete assignments, noticeably jeopardizing the quality of their work
  • Those with a post-deadline emergency who contact their instructors with an excuse for a late assignment after the deadline
  • Freeriders, or students who ride in the wake of their hard-working teammates, contributing as little as possible to the group effort

Many of these problems are widespread; indeed, several of these issues align with the pattern of online student personality types described by Judy (2018).

Connecting Students From Around The World With Virtual Exchanges

David Brodosi In a time when headlines are dominated by stories of how tech is stoking division, I find myself looking instances of how the internet can bring humanity closer together. I was at the Aspen Ideas Festival conference over the Summer and ran into a program that was refreshingly positive. The Stevens Initiative is a modern upgrade of student exchange programs, using the web to bridge students from across the world.

Engaging Faculty with New Tech — Campus Technology

David Brodosi classroom How can college and universities encourage faculty to use new technologies in their teaching? We talked with Julin Sharp, assistant vice president for information technology at Marist College, about her institution’s efforts to engage faculty with innovative tools and pedagogies.

Among Sharp’s responsibilities is leading Marist’s Digital Education group, a centralized team that works with faculty across the college to support technology-enabled teaching and learning. The department’s stated mission is as follows:

“Digital Education is committed to leading the promotion, infusion, and support of technology-facilitated pedagogical innovation. This innovation is designed to aid faculty in enriching student learning experiences as a means to develop the intellect, character, and skills required for enlightened, ethical, and productive lives in the global community of the 21st century.

Survey: More than Half of Faculty Believe Classroom Tech Increases Student Engagement — Campus Technology

David Brodosi classroom In a recent survey, 54 percent of faculty respondents said they believe adding more technology to their classroom would definitely increase student engagement. And another 35 percent felt adding more tech could possibly do so. The survey, conducted by Censuswide on behalf of learning management company D2L, polled 500 university professors across the United States on their use of technology, students’ expectations, institutional support for tech and more.

Overall, 92 percent of faculty said their adoption of technology was on par with or ahead of the curve compared to other educators at similar institutions. Male respondents were significantly more confident in their technology use than females, with 49 percent of men considering themselves ahead of the curve compared with 39 percent of women. Yet when asked about six specific uses of technology for teaching, women reported more technology use than men in nearly every category: communicating with

How Personalized Support and a Culture of Data Can Jumpstart Student Success — Campus Technology

David Brodosi USFSPThe University of South Florida has had formal programs to improve graduation and student success rates for a decade. The institution launched a Student Success Task Force in 2009, and was able to raise six-year graduation rates from 48 percent to 68 percent in 2014. But those gains plateaued two points shy of the state of Florida’s benchmark to measure excellence in student success.

So in 2014, the university was looking for a way to jumpstart its student success efforts and continue improving student completion rates. For one thing, it formed a partnership with Civitas Learning to use the company’s predictive analytics platform to better understand students’ needs and enable more precise, effective student support. At the same time, the university created a Persistence Committee that developed a case management approach to addressing students at risk of leaving school. The task force’s early work laid the groundwork for success with
