2019 TRENDS REPORT: Trends and Predictions that will define STEM in 2020

January 21, 2020 100K in 10

Below is an excerpt from 100K in 10’s 2019 Trends Report:

A 2019 Project Team co-led by The Ingenuity Center at UT Tyler and STEMteachersNYC, with partners from nine other organizations, focused on researching and better understanding innovative approaches to integrating professional growth into the school day, highlighting a number of best practices from around the country that are currently being tested by partners nationwide. Practices include early student release days, collaborative teacher time during student lunch, and a year-round calendar that uses three-week break periods for teacher PD and vacation. 100Kin10 partner New Classrooms is exploring structural changes to their weekly schedules, physical spaces, and priorities around partnerships, each as a means of providing opportunities for increasing teacher collaboration and leadership. We’re looking forward to learning more through a 2020 project team led by STEMteachersNYC and University of North Carolina System that will continue this work by publishing a resource containing innovative scheduling options for job-embedded professional learning.
