ITEST Webcast 1: Infusing IT/STEM Skill Standards in Informal ITEST Learning

WHEN? Thursday, October 5, 2006 2:00-3:00 ET

The YouthLearn team continues its work as a partner in the NSF ITEST Learning Resource Center (LRC). Joyce-Malyn Smith, LRC PI, and Haejung Chung from YouthLearn are organizing the first of two webcasts in October 2006. Please join us for the first event, "Infusing IT/STEM Skill Standards in Informal ITEST Learning," which is designed to answer the following questions: How do educators guide young peoplesí development of IT/STEM skills outside the classroom? How do they articulate the skills and knowledge that ITEST students are developing in such flexible, informal learning environments?

During this first webcast, Principal Investigators from three ITEST projects will share model practices that integrate IT/STEM skill standards into dynamic, informal learning environments, and reveal how ITEST experiences support advanced IT skills and knowledge beyond the standards. With LRC staff, they will also tie that learning to national voluntary industry skill standards for the scientific and technical professions. Many who have reviewed industry skill standards have observed that in various programs out of school and on their own, youth are developing foundational knowledge, sophisticated skills, and, in some cases, the same skill standards required by successful scientific and technical workers.
