Sobre o conteúdo

This course integrates the power of systems thinking with computer models designed to ‘bring to life’ biology topics including evolution, ecology and the chemistry of life. Developed in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Scheller Teacher Education Program, this six-week interactive and collaborative professional development course draws on research in teaching and learning to develop the best experience for teachers.

In this course, you will learn how to use online simulations which are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards in order to develop core biology content and practices. The student facing materials consist of five modules designed for implementation over several class periods, serving as a replacement for an existing lab or activity. The online simulations include optional entry-level coding and the course provides support for learning to teach this with students. The materials include student and teacher guides with built in informal assessments. You will get a chance to work through these materials, watch teachers experienced with the materials teach the lessons, and then interact with experienced BioGraph teachers through online forums and webinars.

Important Information Regarding Verified Certificates:

The BioGraph Team will cover the cost of the Verified Certificate for participants who complete the course, including all surveys. The process for that is still being worked out, so if you would like to apply for the free Verified Certificate, please wait to register until notified by the course team. ( Updated July 9, 2020 )

Participants will be able to

  • Teach High School Biology content through a systems lens
  • Use online simulations that develop core ideas in biology
  • Modify simulations through basic blocks-based coding
  • Highlight the importance and usefulness of scientific models
  • Support students in computational modeling
  • Use scientific argumentation as a method for teaching and learning science content
  • Join a global community of teachers

Pré-requisito

Experience with high school level biology content is helpful for navigating this course as it is not designed to teach content, but rather pedagogical tools that can support the content.

Programa de estudos

It is suggested that you complete this course in 6-7 weeks.

There are three Synchronous Video Meet-ups scheduled throughout the course to help support you during your engagement. These Meet-ups will be scheduled to align with three suggested start dates and timelines for completing the course. You do not have to align your own progress with one of these timelines, but we highly suggest it for maximum support from the staff and facilitation team.

The three timelines are:

• Track 1: May 6th - June 27th

• Track 2: June 3rd - July 25th

• Track 3: July 8th - August 29th

Plataforma

Edx

EdX est une plateforme d'apprentissage en ligne (dite FLOT ou MOOC). Elle héberge et met gratuitement à disposition des cours en ligne de niveau universitaire à travers le monde entier. Elle mène également des recherches sur l'apprentissage en ligne et la façon dont les utilisateurs utilisent celle-ci. Elle est à but non lucratif et la plateforme utilise un logiciel open source.

EdX a été fondée par le Massachusetts Institute of Technology et par l'université Harvard en mai 2012. En 2014, environ 50 écoles, associations et organisations internationales offrent ou projettent d'offrir des cours sur EdX. En juillet 2014, elle avait plus de 2,5 millions d'utilisateurs suivant plus de 200 cours en ligne.

Les deux universités américaines qui financent la plateforme ont investi 60 millions USD dans son développement. La plateforme France Université Numérique utilise la technologie openedX, supportée par Google.
