STEM Education Resources

eGFI by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE)

http://teachers.egfi-k12.org/
Here you will find a variety of tools to boost your students’ math and science skills, enliven the classroom with engineering projects, expand your own professional horizons and stay informed

Interactive Science Simulations
http://phet.colorado.edu/
Fun, interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena from the PhET project at the University of Colorado.

Teach Engineering
http://www.teachengineering.org/
TeachEngineering.org is a searchable, web-based digital library collection populated with standards-based engineering curricula for use by K-12 teachers and engineering faculty to make applied science and math (engineering) come alive in K-12 settings.
The TeachEngineering collection provides educators with *free* access to a growing curricular resource of multi-week units, lessons, activities and living labs. Initiated by the merging of K-12 engineering curricula created by four universities, the collection continues to grow and evolve over time with new additions from other universities, and input from teachers who use the curricula in their classrooms.

Engineering in K-12 Education:
Understanding the Status and Improving the Prospects
http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=12635
Engineering in K-12 Education reviews the scope and impact of engineering education today and makes several recommendations to address curriculum, policy, and funding issues. The book also analyzes a number of K-12 engineering curricula in depth and discusses what is known from the cognitive sciences about how children learn engineering-related concepts and skills.

International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE)
http://www.iste.org/welcome.aspx
ISTE represents more than 100,000 education leaders and emerging leaders throughout the world and informs its members regarding educational issues of national and global scope. This web site contain resources for teachers, including technology standards for students, teachers, and administrators.

The National Educational Technology Plan
http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010
The National Education Technology Plan, Transforming American Education: Learning Powered by Technology, calls for applying the advanced technologies used in our daily personal and professional lives to our entire education system to improve student learning, accelerate and scale up the adoption of effective practices, and use data and information for continuous improvement.
It presents five goals with recommendations for states, districts, the federal government, and other stakeholders. Each goal addresses one of the five essential components of learning powered by technology: Learning, Assessment, Teaching, Infrastructure, and Productivity.
