In our poster, we address the teaching diverse students strand, which would allow us to highlight: (a) informal education experience; (b) project-based instruction; (c) technology integration lessons; (d) technology integration to support NOYCE scholars; and (e) bringing preservice teachers to rural communities.
NOYCE scholars at the University of Florida are undergraduates pursuing teacher Preparation in Secondary Mathematics and Science. Our Poster will showcase the ways our NOYCE scholars have been engaged in community outreach and deepening their experience in STEM education practices in both formal and informal educational settings.
We address: 1. NOYCE Summer scholars- the informal education experience where our NOYCE interns have the opportunity to design Science & Mathematics learning opportunities for learners across age groups in their diverse volunteer settings. 2. Project based instruction with Middle school students in an after school program: allowing our pre-service teachers to work in small group settings designing lessons situated in real world scenarios to interest and motivate after school students. 3. Technology integration lessons: TI workshop for our preservice teachers and local inservice teachers / using TI-NSpire with PBI, iPads for PSA?s and Stop motion Tangram videos with Elem. students. 4. Technology integration to support NOYCE Scholars during their Apprenticeship through video observation and self reflection in middle and high school settings. 5. Family Math & Science Night: Bringing preservice teachers into rural communities to share their love of Math & Science with elementary students.
