Technology Education

A robot that helps teach computer programming is a rising star in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) classes in Kentucky. On Sounds Good, Kate Lochte meets the French-made robot and its handlers from the Kentucky Academy of Technology Education in Murray State's College of Education and Human Services.

Active learning online is a buzz phrase for getting faculty lectures to students before they come to class, so the class can be an engagement center for students asking about lectures they've already heard, and presumably studied.  University of Tennessee at Martin instructional technology designer Harriette Spiegel is involved in an ECHO 360 webinar open to all, free, this Thursday at 1 p.m.  It is targeted specifically to supporting STEM classrooms.
