10 Web Resources that I find useful for (STEM) pedagogy !

1) NASA STEM Engagement has a great deal to offer to upcoming, and already emerging scientists and their teachers, ranging from formatted activities, lessons games, opportunities of internships, fellowships and many more. Do count.

2) STEM Learning is a UK based collaborative institution in promoting Teachers Professional Development (TPD) in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, you can register to take part in almost many of the opportunities as teacher from outside the UK.

3) Khan Academy has apparently has deep thoughts on overall learning of school children across the globe. Its rich web resources help the teachers and students facilitate their (STEM) learning on the web. This institution has been more handy in the COVID-19 years.

4) Well, it’s my personal favourite ! IFLScience might not offer deep learning, nor the wide learning as it is maintained by nuber of enthusiastic science bloggers. Still, I find it very intriguing. I perceive that they bring out science which we can not imagine ‘normal’ using our ‘real’ and ‘rational’ mind. I have liked them in facebook and subscribed their news feed to ‘appear at first’ !

5) Let me quote THE GLOBE PROGRAM‘s vision – “A worldwide community of students, teachers, scientists, and citizens working together to better understand, sustain, and improve Earth’s environment at local, regional, and global scales.” Sponsored by NASA, the engagement that this program provides to teachers and students of the world truly parallels, or more correctly, coincides with the agendas of ‘Education for Sustainability’, ‘Place-based Education’, and moreover ‘think globally and act locally’.

6) Greenlearning Canada is the remarkable environmental education project from the country of more than a million lakes – Canada. Canada stands affirm with the national environmental commitments towards globally agreed targets and principles – evidently around green economy, reducing greenhouse gases emissions, protecting biodiversity and wetlands, education for sustainability, and more. Greenlearning Canada offers programs, challenges, lesson plans, and many more than can also be used by the teachers from outside Canada.

7) I have come across MotherNaturEd rather accidentally in Facebook. Penny Whitehouse, the founder of this self-initiated project puts the slogan “connecting kids with nature”. I would suggest it as “connecting the family with nature”. An educated working mother has taken an award-deserving project to encourage others and showcase their own activities outdoors with the kids. Visit her website, get inspired, learn from her and radiate the purpose – make kids empathetic to nature.

8) The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Education offers a wide range of resources and activities for those teaching STEM to young people aged 4-19 years.

9) CODE.ORG helps educators and students from the privileged sections and the marginalised sections of the society access the opportunity to colearn coding and skills in ICT. It is self-paced program made for different age groups. IT has also collaborated with various after-school projects across the USA that help kids learn more of the computer science as per the students’ interests.

10) NRICH is a mathematics education project by University of Cambridge. It offers wide range of opportunities in the form of practices and subissions, handouts, webinars, and more to teachers and students of various age groups.
