Next Generation Science and Engineering Standards
Wednesday, September 21, 2011
It's been fifteen years since the National Science Education Standards were implemented, and they're just about due for a major overhaul to address advances in scientific content, our understanding about how people learn, and major societal changes such as widespread adoption of the Internet, social media, and cell phone technology.
Join Achieve's Stephen Pruitt as he gives an overview of the Next Generation Science Education Standards, how they will be adopted across the profession, and how their implementation will shift teaching and learning in science classrooms.
Join us for a wine and cheese reception from 6:30 to 7:00 pm. This event is also available as a webinar.
