Want to showcase user-generated content but not sure how to address editorial challenges? Looking for new strategies to grow your classroom/community partnerships? Wondering how you can use data to highlight the impact of locally-created educational resources but not sure where to start? This course is for you!
In 2018 Iowa PBS launched the user-generated website and service, Iowa Science Phenomena, and continues to grow this free, community-vetted online resource FOR K-12 science teachers, BY science teachers. During this hybrid course Iowa PBS Education staff will share experiences, lessons learned and allow participants to collaborate around topics including: work flows for moderating/scaling user-generated content; and strategies for building and sustaining robust community/classroom engagement; effectively telling your stories; and strategies for gathering and using project and program data. Bring your questions and ideas to share!
We want this to be an engaging and useful course for everyone! Below outlines the learning outcomes for all attendees.
