Teacher Advisors Needed: NASA / WGBH’s ‘Bringing the Universe to America’s Classrooms’ Initiative
Public Broadcasting Station WGBH/Boston, supported by a NASA cooperative agreement, is developing new instructional models and digital media tools for STEM classrooms. WGBH is looking for 50 K-12 educators to act as advisors in the development of the new resources.
Teacher Advisors will work with media producers and education researchers to design new ways to engage students around topics in Earth, space and physical sciences. The main activity will center on the evaluation and testing of instructional modules that incorporate cutting-edge scientific data digital media tools (e.g., data visualizations, interactives, virtual field trips, etc.) and address educational standards.
Applicants must be full-time K-12 educators (U.S. or U.S. territories) currently teaching topics in Earth, physical and/or space science. Eligible candidates must have a passion for using digital technology and media and a desire to gain instructional design experience.
Applications are due April 11, 2016.
