Teacher workshop spreads knowledge building inquiry with ITM

Our collaborating teachers from Guilderland Elementary School delivered a professional development workshop to share their knowledge-building inquiry in science with teachers and school leaders in the Greater Capital Region of New York State. The workshop was hosted by at the Teacher Center in Albany on February 7, 2019. The Guilderland teacher team has been collaborating with our research team since 2013 to restructure their Grade 5 science program using a Knowledge Building approach with Knowledge Forum and Idea Thread Mapper (ITM). At this workshop, they shared their innovative work to approach the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) through  inquiry with the technology support.
