New - STAO's Safety Mindedness Resource
STAO’s new online Safety Mindedness resource conveys the importance of creating a culture of safety mindedness in Science (Grades 9–12) and Science and Technology (Grades K–8) classrooms.
Over the last two years, Science Teachers’ Association of Ontario (STAO) has developed the Ministry-funded project titled, Project Innovation. Improving the pedagogical knowledge and skills of science teachers is a priority for STAO. In 2014-2015, STAO writing teams developed resources to enhance student engagement in science. Ontario teachers with extensive experiences developed content and media to help teachers direct their own learning in areas of inquiry, critical thinking and technology-enhanced learning. Check out Expert Elements. Classroom teachers connected these strategies or tools to specific grade and/or curriculum, which are showcased in Classroom Catalysts.
The professional learning program includes three parts: face-to-face workshops, collaborative inquiry supported in online Learning Labs, and knowledge mobilization to share the learning with all Ontario teachers.
STAOConnex supports teacher sharing of innovative practices in science education. This new area is designed to enhance collaboration among teachers with a focus on innovation and inquiry.
