If you are a member of NSTA - please think about providing feedback.
A team of science educators has developed a new NSTA position statement acknowledging the value of 21st-century skills within the context of science education. The statement advocates for the science education community to support 21st-century skills consistent with best practices across a science education system and notes that “exemplary science education can offer a rich context for developing many 21st-century skills, such as critical thinking, problem solving, and information literacy.”
NSTA encourages feedback from members before the draft document is adopted by the NSTA Board of Directors. Please tell us what you think by viewing the draft statement here (PDF) and submitting your comments here.
We welcome your feedback by Monday, March 14.
