Free STEM Webinar

From The VHS Collaborative ---- and no not the VHS as in videocassette ---- this VHS stands for Virtual High School -----

Part 2 of our STEM Series:
"Engaging Students in Science Using Open Educational Resources (OERs)"
Join us on Thursday, November 29, 2012 for this Free Webinar.

Increasing students' interest in science related college majors and careers must begin in high school or even earlier. One approach is to use Open Educational Resources (OERs). As the movement toward releasing resources into the public domain continues to grow, each year brings a wealth of new opportunities to engage students in science through various forms of digital content. OERs:
  • Address multiple learning styles
  • Can be used to introduce or reinforce concepts
  • Help make content meaningful, and connect students to the greater scientific community.
In this webinar we will:
  • Share 2012's Top 10 Science OERs
  • Discuss methods to integrate these digital resources into the classroom
  • Explore ways in which OERs can add new depth, dimension, and excitement to the classroom through a variety of digital media.
