May 9, 2017 --Please join us online May 15-22 for the 2017 STEM for All Video Showcase: Research & Design for Impact, when ECEP, along with more than 170 other projects, will showcase a three-minute video highlighting the innovative work being done in broadening participation and access to STEM.
During the week-long online event, principal investigators, practitioners, administrators, researchers, policy makers, industry, and the public at large are encouraged to participate. All participants will be able to view the video presentations, participate in facilitated discussions of each video, and vote for the videos that are most effective in conveying the creative work being done. Videos will be searchable by interest and will be available after the showcase ends for future reference.
ECEP’s 2016 video submission elicited an informative discussion and more than 2,800 video views. “It was a great way to reach an audience we might not normally reach, and showcase some of ECEP’s guiding principles to help states outside of our alliance who are working to reform computing education,” said Sarah Dunton, ECEP Alliance Manager.
The 2017 STEM for All Video Showcase will spotlight cutting edge NSF-funded work as well as work funded by other federal agencies aimed at improving the teaching and learning of STEM. It encourages affiliated projects to learn about and discuss each other's work. It will also allow each project to disseminate their work to the public at large, helping NSF achieve its goal of broad dissemination of innovative work.
The public is invited to recognize videos they find most inspiring by going to the video presentation pages and voting for “public choice” directly on the site or through Facebook and Twitter.
Videos will be available to view starting May 15. In the meantime, visit last year's showcase to browse videos by keywords, age/grade level, organization, state, and more.
This event is facilitated by TERC, in collaboration with six NSF-funded resource centers: MSPnet, CADRE, CIRCL, CAISE, STELAR, and CS for All Teachers. It is funded by the National Science Foundation
