Good Thinking! The Science Of Teaching Science

The Smithsonian Science Education Center has partnered with FableVision Studios on "Good Thinking! The Science of Teaching Science," a new, original web series and professional development resource for science educators. Too often, valuable knowledge sits unused in inaccessible journals; Good Thinking! delves into the research to share the best ideas and practices with teachers in a fun, accessible way. Good Thinking! is able to reach teachers with targeted information to support their practices.

Learning Objectives

  1. Explore the potential for practical implementation of an animated web-series as part of a coherent and rigorous professional development plan.
  2. Investigate the learning science behind why our minds are designed to misunderstand science, & what educators can do about it.
  3. Discuss the need for an intersection of research and science with arts and entertainment in order to provide accessible information.
