Good day to you, the science education partner,
We hope you will, once again, share the information with your community:
Modeling Instruction is designated as an Exemplary K-12 science program and a Promising Educational Technology program by the U.S. Department of Education. Modeling Workshops™ are peer-led. Content is reorganized around basic models to increase its structural coherence. Participants are supplied with a complete set of course materials and work through activities alternately in roles of student or teacher, as they practice techniques of guided inquiry and cooperative learning. Models and theories are the purpose and the outcomes of scientific practices. They are tools for engineering design and problem solving. Thus, modeling guides all other practices. A short video introduces Modeling Instruction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nG7SOc0Rnks
The workshop hosts and leaders are working hard to get the 2020 Modeling Workshops planned and scheduled. At this moment, no workshops have been scheduled for your state, as soon as we learn of new workshops, we will update the listings.
For the complete list (which is constantly updated) please go to: https://www.modelinginstruction.org/professional-development/upcoming-workshops/summer-2020/
PS: AMTA now has podcasts, if you want to know what David Hestenes has to share, for example, please check out the recordings at Modeling Science Talk: https://sciencemodelingtalks.com/ with a big thank you to Mark Royce.
PPS: Save the date for the 2020 Annual AMTA Conference June 19-21 at Arizona State University in Tempe
