Links within the cabinet take users to eight different categories including short video explanations by professionals within the field. Click on any image within the cabinet to view a short description of an item used for a STEM career and one or more videos. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as ClipGrab, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): anthropology (12), careers (140), communication (9), ecology (138), engineering (130), marine biology (34), oceans (162), STEM (172)

Fortunately, teachers already have free technologies at their disposal to assist with this. Join us as we explore strategies and tools that facilitate an inclusive learning environment. Participants will: 1. Understand the importance of accessibility; 2. Explore Microsoft tools that can be used to create accessible materials; and 3. Identify an easy new habit, hack, and/or tool they can adopt to help make material accessible for their students. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

This YouTube Channel, created for middle and high school students digs deeper into issues (environmental, health, social and more) affecting their lives. Based on science and research, episodes provide information to help teens make informed conclusions on topics like fake news and social media. The classroom guide for teachers provides discussion questions for use before, during, and after videos along with alignment to Common Core Standards. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): drugs and alcohol (25), social media (23), social networking (112), social skills (21), sociology (22), video (276)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the classroom guide to explore big questions found within each episode. Subscribe to this channel to receive notifications of new video additions. Use a tool such as Vizia, reviewed here, to add questions directly into the YouTube videos for students to complete as a flipped lesson before classroom instruction.

@stake is an online game for 3-5 players (all in the same room) to build creativity and empathy through small group deliberations. Set up the game following prompts on the site. Begin by choosing a stakeholder deck from the four options. Share the game code with players to enter the room. The game consists of three rounds of discussion and debate ending with the choice of the best idea shared from the group's deliberations.

tag(s): creativity (118), emotions (39), game based learning (137)

In the Classroom

Use this game as part of any lessons on persuasion and empathy. Use the four options from the card deck as models to create your own role play game using different situations specific to your students. For example, debate the use of mobile devices in your classroom or the ability to go off campus for lunch. This could be done easily by writing the Deciders role cards out on 3x5 cards and using a timer. If you are beginning the process of integrating technology, have students create the cards using a Google doc, reviewed here. An alternative would be to allow your "techies" and or gifted students to create a game using Twine, reviewed here, or Quest, reviewed here. These two tools create text-based interactive games. Have school counselors use this @stake to model non-confrontational methods for problem-solving and deliberation.

Amaze has animated videos providing factual and informative information about sexual development to adolescents aged 10-14. Their goal is to counter misinformation about puberty, sex, and sexuality while developing accurate representations of healthy body development and relationships. It is important to take note of ratings when viewing videos on Amaze. Green indicates videos appropriate for all young people and blue indicates videos suitable for those of the older range from 10 to 14 years old. Choose videos from the different categories or select favorite videos from the home page. Each video includes a "dig deeper" button with additional information for discussions. Be sure to check out the section for educators containing lesson plans for 5th and 6th grades, books suggestions, and other resources. Registration isn't necessary; however, it allows users to save favorites and create personalized video playlists. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): adolescence (12), diseases (73), hiv/aids (19), sexuality (15)

In the Classroom

Be sure to follow suggestions for age appropriateness and have appropriate parental permission when using this site in the classroom. Share this site with school counselors and teachers of sex education. Use Amaze as a resource for discussions involving relationships, personal safety, and other teen and preteen issues. When appropriate, share a link to videos on your class webpage. Amaze is an excellent site to share with parents as they face difficult issues that arise during the teen years. Have students create personal blogs for their private reflection about these videos and discussions.

Discovering Farmland takes an interactive look at agriculture based on the documentary film, "Farmland, a film by James Moll." Engage in clips from the documentary to deliver lessons about farming as industry, stereotypes, and challenges in farming and ranching. Take a virtual field trip to learn about the innovative technology used in agriculture. Be sure to check out the Exploration portion of the site to find out more about food labels found at the grocery store.

In the Classroom

Use video clips found on the site to share information about farming and agriculture with your students. If you are new to integrating technology in your classroom, consider having students create blogs about a "day in the life" of a farmer or rancher. An easy to use blog creator is Telegra.ph, here. Telegra.ph will create a "quick and easy" blog to be used one time only. A unique URL is provided, and with Telegra.ph you just click on an icon to upload images from your computer, add a YouTube or Vimeo, or Twitter links. It's as easy as using a basic Word program! For teachers who are more experienced with integrating technology in their classroom, challenge cooperative learning groups to create podcasts sharing their insights on different types of farming and how technology has changed the agriculture industry. Create podcasts using a site such as Spreaker, reviewed here. You could give students a choice, either a podcast or to use a mapping tool such as Zeemaps, reviewed here, to create a map of different types of farms found around the country or the world. With Zeemaps you can include audio stories and pictures.
