Eric.ed.gov – Siemens Foundation and the STEM Challenge

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

For more than 12 years, the Siemens Foundation has found unique ways to partner with organizations to support educational initiatives in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the United States. Its focus is clear–to educate the next generation of innovators by supporting math and science education from grade school to grad school and ultimately to boost US competitiveness. The Siemens Foundation has provided millions of dollars in funding throughout its history in support of STEM education. Its interest as the nonprofit arm of Siemens, the global engineering company, is to do its part to inspire the next generation of innovators–scientists who will change the world. Its ultimate goal is to establish a renewed culture of innovation within the U.S., combining resources from academia, government and the private sector–with Siemens Foundation leading the way. Some of its key educational outreach partners include: The College Board, Discovery Education, National Science Teacher Association and Thurgood Marshall College Fund. The author gives some examples of the organization’s most recent programs involving multiple partnerships to achieve this goal.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
