Explore how digital media can be adapted for STEM instruction in this session from WGBH Education and PBS LearningMedia. This session will focus on what makes good digital media for STEM instruction and illustrate how the STEM education team at WGBH takes media from a range of sources, including WGBH programs such as NOVA and PEEP and the Big Wide World, as well as content partners such as NASA and NOAA, to engage students in learning STEM concepts and practices. Participants will engage with different forms of media, all freely available on PBS LearningMedia, and learn how each is contexualized to support classroom use with diverse learners. Facilitators will highlight the strengths of different media types to support student learning of STEM standards, such as providing an authentic context, representing complex data sets, or showing phenomena that otherwise are difficult to view in the classroom. The goal of WGBH Education is to advance the effective use of media by helping educators use media from a variety of sources to engage students in STEM learning.
