The JASON Project is a hands-on, inquiry-based, learning experience providing a yearlong multi-media, interdisciplinary program based on the National Science and Geography Standards. The Project integrates an award winning curriculum, video programming, satellite transmissions, and online activities.
The JASON Project is an excellent site to use a model for elementary preservice teachers in a science methods course. The previous Jason Projects (e.g., Rainforest Adventures; Journey to the Center of the Earth) are ready to use models or examples for preservice teachers, while the active or future projects allow for interaction and participation of students. The projects models developing fun and educational activities based on the National Educational Standards. Examples of the National Educational Standards that the JASON Projects include:
1. Science as Inquiry: Content Standard A a. Students should learn about scientific inquiry and develop the abilities needed to perform it.
2. Life Science: Content Standard C a. Students should develop an understanding about the structure and function of living systems, reproduction and heredity, regulation and behavior, populations and ecosystems, and the diversity and adaptations of organisms.
In addition, the JASON Project curricula are aligned with the National Education Standards in Science, Geography, English, and Technology, as well as with state educations standards.
It is easy to move throughout the site. Several plug-ins are required to run movies, etc.
