Event: AAAS Workshop on online Science Literacy Maps


Start:
Jun 26, 2011
 
12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location:
Philadelphia, PA


Description:
Would you like to locate just the right teaching resources in the National Science Digital Library (NSDL) collections and, at the same time, get a better sense of what your students should know and when they should learn it? Then join AAAS Project 2061 for an introduction to the Science Literacy Maps, an online concept browsing interface provided by the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). If you would like to find out how to take full advantage of the online Maps, please join us for lunch and a free workshop at the Courtyard Marriott Philadelphia Downtown (21 N Juniper Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19107) from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on June 26, 2011 (first day of the ISTE Conference).

The NSDL Science Literacy Maps, which are based on maps published in AAAS Project 2061's two-volume Atlas of Science Literacy, provide easy access to a wide array of education resources for teaching K-12 science. They also offer insights that can help you see how your students are likely to make progress-or have problems-in their learning from grade to grade, how to help them understand relationships among important ideas, and how to keep the "big picture" of science learning in mind as you select and use the NSDL resources.

You can apply to attend the workshop by filling out this brief online survey by May 6, 2011:

Although we would like to accommodate everyone who has an interest in attending, space in the workshop is limited to 30 people. Participants who are selected to attend will be notified by June 3rd, 2011, and will get a free copy of the two-volume Atlas of Science Literacy.
