"I think the major result of utilizing the four Cs in any curriculum is student engagement. Even informal science/STEM environments can incorporate and gather data on the effectiveness of activities by examining these components."

Hi Christi - Hope your summer is going well! I wanted to update you on our free webinars and hope you can join us for one of them soon. Maybe we can get you to do one too - interested?

In any case, we've had three Tech Talks so far - one on Interactive Notebooks, Moodle, and Digital Storytelling. You can get to the recordings of those by clicking on the Web Archive link.

You can see all our upcoming events by clicking on the Events tab. The next TechTalk topic is Using Wikis. We've got lots more topics to cover in the next few months - technology, pedagogy, content knowledge, all sorts of fun stuff! Any ideas on additional topics or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated! Kim

Hi, Christi,
Welcome!
Would you be willing to share a little bit about your work with middle school teachers? Do they come to the observatory for staff development? for curriculum development? to participate in research? Can you share a an example or story about something a teacher has done as a result of engagement with the observatory?

Hi Christi. Welcome. Im looking at your avatar and trying to figure it out. Where were you at? Looks cool. Please feel free to tell us a little about yourself and things that you are looking to take from the site.
