Eric.ed.gov – World Class: The Massachusetts Agenda to Meet the International Challenge for Math- and Science-Educated Students

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

This report draws on the findings of nearly four dozen others: national and international studies that speak with a strong, collective voice about what it takes to improve math and science education. But the authors’ intent with “World Class” is not simply to synthesize those reports. It is to establish a statewide, working agenda for Massachusetts–a blueprint for how to enact the cumulative recommendations of the researchers and educators mentioned in this paper. This report is also a K-12 public education companion to the report issued last year by Mass Insight Education’s sister organization, Mass Insight Corporation. “Choosing To Lead: The Race for National R&D Leadership” and “New Economy Jobs” presented an action plan to help Massachusetts maintain its position as a sci-tech leader and to secure its economic future. The recommendations offered by the researchers and educators are: (1) Invest in Massachusetts’ Teachers of Math and Science by: (a) Preparing new teachers for higher math/science expectations; (b) build the capacity of current teachers; and (c) enhance the status of the teaching profession; and (2) Invest in Massachusetts Students’ Math/Science Experience by: (a) challenging all students with rigorous curricula; (b) engaging students in active, inquiry-based STEM experiences (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) to build interest in STEM-related careers; and (c) expanding parent and public understanding of the critical importance of STEM to the state’s economic future. Appended are: (1) Content Knowledge, Pedagogical Knowledge, and Pedagogical Content Knowledge; and (2) Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment.

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.
