Technology Resources for STEM

We will share here some technological resources we think can be useful for STEM education. Many of them were created by UBC graduate students who participated in the Master’s of Educational Technology ProgramETEC 533 course “Mathematics and Science Teaching and Learning through Technology” taught by Dr. Marina Milner-Bolotin.

Khan Academy and Flipped Classroom Great set of very short video clips that will get you started with Khan Academy and flipped classroom. It will be great for teachers, students and parents.
Google App (GAfE) Tutorial for High School Science Classroom Wonderful website on how to use Google Apps for teaching. It is a great resource as the tutorial focuses on both technical and pedagogical aspects.
Geogebra in Mathematics Classroom If you want to change how your students learn mathematics and geometry, take a look (Free resource). Notice, it has a huge community with lots of great activities, lesson plans, and ideas for teaching and learning.
iPads in Math & Science Elementary Classroom Have an iPad, but do not know how to use it in your classroom – use this engaging tutorial to get started. The focus is on elementary classroom, but I can see it extended to K-12.
Student Response Systems in Math and Science Clickers, student response systems or BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) response systems are explored in this wonderful tutorial. Notice, your students can use their Smartphones and you do not need to pay lots of money to get them engaged.
Edmodo in Math & Science Classrooms If you use Facebook, but cannot use it at school (due to the age restrictions) and keep wondering how social media can change your classroom, take a look at this great resource!
Canvas by Instructure in K-12 education Class Management Systems: if you have about them but are afraid to get started, don’t wait any longer. This interactive tutorial will help you! Canvas is one example, there are others, but this tutorial will help you see a big picture.
