As a long-time member of the Hands-On Science Partnership, which is comprised of industry leaders who are deeply passionate about providing quality instruction in science, technology, engineering and math through the use of hands-on materials, tools, and programs, Kendall Hunt has had a strong interest in developing educational solutions that support STEM goals. That's why we're excited to let you know about our newest program -- Technology in Practice: Applications and Innovations.
Technology in Practice is a flexible and supplemental digital science curriculum for students in grades 6-9 that is available in Flourish, Kendall Hunt's digital learning network. It consists of three online modules that can be taught in any order to address the importance of technology and innovation in daily life. Developed by BSCS, the nation's premier science study and developer of research-based curriculum, the online program is based upon the BSCS 5E model and supports STEM goals, the National Research Council's Framework for K-12 Science Education, and the Next Generation Science Standards.
Program modules can be purchased individually or as a complete curriculum. Each module comes with an introductory chapter called Doing Technology that addresses the importance of technology in daily life and illustrates the process of how technology is used to solve problems that occur in daily life. The chapter sets the stage for future learning as students progress through other modules.
All modules contain interactive digital learning resources at point-of-use that help students gain an understanding of technology design, engineering, and testing concepts. Additional hands-on activities are provided to further support classroom learning.
