SECO Conference 2016
Early Bird Discount last day
This year, the SECO annual conference sessions will focus on Ohio’s Learning Standards For Science and how to successfully implement and assess them. The goal of the Ohio Science Institute is for participants to learn specific information about science education that pertains to their grade level and content area. Instructional and assessment practices reflecting Ohio’s Cognitive Demands for Science will be highlighted in all strands. The Institute will be held at the Columbus Hilton at Easton, on January 25-26, 2016. Early Bird Registration Ends Today
Hybrid Learning - Technology Infused
Presenting learning opportunities using technology-rich configurations is a constantly evolving area in education today. From blended learning to flipped classrooms, learn about digital innovations that have been developed by teachers to maximize benefits to your classes and involve every student in the dynamic world of science in order to achieve productive learning experiences.
Literacy Across the Curriculum
Science is not limited to what we find in traditional science textbooks. In the tightly constricted time available in the classroom, integration is essential to become college and career ready. Integration of literacy skills and science processes provide students with rich learning opportunities. This will enable students to construct stronger content knowledge, develop more effective communication skills, demonstrate evidence-based reasoning, and apply critical thinking techniques.
Engineering and Design Integration
- This strand will provide educators and stakeholders with guidance to help teachers shift from content-focused lessons to three-dimensional learning and assessment. The three dimensions of learning, as stated in NGSS, are science and engineering, disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts. These dimensions should be integrated in curricula, instruction, and assessment to support meaningful learning in science. Engaging all students in engineering design embodies the union of mathematics, science, and communication.
