Implementing STEM Practices with TI-Nspire™ Technology

This workshop explores strategies for identifying, implementing and mutually reinforcing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) practices using TI-Nspire™ technology. Instructional strategies and learning outcomes will focus on the integration of technology, engineering and mathematics into a science curriculum.

The workshop uses quantitative investigations, analyses and simulations using TI-Nspire™ technology to define problems and develop solutions, as well as developing and using models, planning and executing investigations involving data collection, analyzing and interpreting data, and using computational thinking to construct explanations and design solutions. You’ll apply STEM practices to problem-solving scenarios involving the physical sciences, life sciences, and earth and space sciences.

Overview

This workshop is available in one-, two- and three-day options to accommodate educator-specific needs. The two- and three-day workshops offer a more extensive exploration of topics.
