Pedagogy in Practice: Video Case Studies of Teaching Science; Pedagogy in Practice: Video Case Studies of Teaching Math; Strategies in Practice Resource Guide

Added 10/27/2008
The Pedagogy in Practice: Science video case studies document lessons from general science, biology and chemistry. Each case is supported by relevant artifacts that develop real contexts for the learning and includes teaching cues and transcripts of classroom dialog. National Board certified and Exploratorium Master teachers deconstruct their own teaching practices and share how they break subject matter standards into mind-sized learning units, then demonstrate those same learning units in action.

INTIME - Integrating New Technologies into the Methods of Education

Added 10/27/2008
INTIME provides online video vignettes of PreK-12 teachers from various grades and subjects showing how they integrate technology into their classrooms using numerous teaching strategies. INTIME is the result of a PT3 program (Preparing Tomorrow?s Teachers to Use Technology). INTIME resources are useful for (1) teacher educators creating case studies; (2) pre-service teachers learning about effective pedagogical techniques; (3) in-service teachers searching for ideas and independent professional development; (4) professional developers seeking resources to demonstrate good teaching and technology integration, and (5) administrators developing teacher quality initiatives and mentoring programs.
