ReSET volunteer Jenny Tsao shares information below on an on-line training course, free of charge, starting April 7. While it's oriented towards middle and high schools, I'd like to start a dialogue among ReSET'ers who take the course on ideas for adjusting the content and presentation for elementary schools. JOhn
I just wanted to pass you a note that may be of interest to current/future volunteers. I don't know if you've heard of Coursera, but it is a site that offers free online courses on various subjects.
I am enrolled in a course that starts April 7th entitled: Re-Engineering Your Science Curriculum, taught by Exploratorium Teacher Institute.
More info here: https://www.coursera.org/course/teachengineering
It is free of charge and there is no obligation to complete the course or even participate. Just thought you might want to pass along information.
