SEEKING TEACHERS FOR RESEARCH STUDY

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DX6WCBK

Teaching with any software or hardware this fall? Take this
short online survey to determine your eligibility for a
National Science Foundation-funded study about the integration
of technology in K-12 science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics (STEM) classrooms.

Researchers from Education Development Center (EDC), TERC, and
The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
will subsequently select teachers to

- complete a brief online survey every two weeks that
describes what kinds of technology have been used in your
classroom, what worked particularly well, and what did not
(about 10-15 minutes)
- identify one week in the semester when you are using
technology in the way most reflective of your best
practices (as defined by you), and send in materials,
student work, and other data from that week
- participate in a 30-45 minute interview after submitting
the class materials
- complete a final culminating online survey (15-20 minutes)

Teachers who finish the semester-long research study will
receive a $400 stipend.

"I do not like the wording of this question. But my probability
and statistics education is a loooong time in the past. I'd
appreciate a second (third, fourth, . . . dozenth) opinion."

SUMMER COURSES FOR MATH TEACHERS

http://www.math.washington.edu/nwmi/sum/summer2011/

Come to the University of Washington in Seattle August 8-12 for
Northwest Mathematics Interaction's high-energy professional
development opportunity in geometry.

Share with other high school and middle school teachers who
teach a geometry course, or who teach geometry in an integrated
course or middle school course. Leave with a richer set of
tools for addressing the increased geometry demanded by the
Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

That same second week of August, Northwest Mathematics
Interaction (NWMI) also offers two minicourses that blend
practical hands-on activity with reflection about math content:
The Mathematics of Origami; and Math and Games.

Sign up today: the discount for early registration ends
tomorrow, June 25th.

NWMI is an affiliate of Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI).
PCMI's Secondary School Teachers Program begins in ten days:

Until PCMI 2011 formally gets underway July 5th, you can get a
sense of its daily flow by checking out the class notes from
years past:

TI-NSPIRE STEM PROJECT CHALLENGE

http://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/nonProductSingle/stem_project_challenge.html

To foster students' interest in STEM career fields, as well as
provide a unique opportunity for inquiry-based and
collaborative learning, Texas Instruments will select fifteen
(15) educators to participate, along with their classes, in a
STEM project creation utilizing TI's newest TI-Nspire
CX technology.

Each class selected will receive equipment on loan from TI,
investigate a topic that interests them, and then develop a
unique and creative project to showcase their exploration. A
panel of professionals in STEM-related careers will determine
the best project, earning that class a complete set of
TI-Nspire technology to keep. The teacher behind the best
project will win an all-expense paid trip to attend and present
at the 2012 Teachers Teaching with Technology (T^3)
International Conference in Chicago, Illinois.

To apply for this challenge, download and complete this PDF
application by July 7th:
