For the past few weeks I have had the honor of working as a member of the MSU-Wipro Urban STEM Fellowship’s instructional team, with twenty-five of the most dedicated, inspiring and motivated educators in Chicago’s Public Schools. These past two weeks were the initial face to face portion of a year long fellowship that focuses on helping STEM educators create transformative, innovative and multimodal learning environments for their students.
Throughout the two weeks, I had the privilege of watching fellows dive into content, pedagogy, technology and social justice as they collaboratively worked towards revolutionizing the way young learners in Chicago experience the STEM subjects.
I will do my best to share the amazing ideas and creations developed by the fellows. There have already been too many to explain in one post. Please visit the web portfolios for each fellow, as they will be showcasing their work by publishing on their personal sites. After spending the past two weeks around these amazing fellows, I am thrilled for all of the Chicago students whose STEM related experiences will be profoundly different this school year.
