100Kin10 Project Team: STEM After the Standards Era (2020-2021)

January-June 2020 

Current standards and accountability systems really do not do STEM…or education as a whole…any favors. While they seem to be a given, there was a time before standards and accountability as we know them and there may well be a time after...if only we can come up with viable alternatives that serve learners and educators in more fruitful ways. What are the alternatives? Perhaps the movement toward profiles of graduates is a starting point.

Initially the work may be about daydreaming out-loud but the hope is that we would land on some “ahas” that could form the basis of a white paper or other piece of writing. 

February-May 2021

This Community explored alternatives to the current testing and accountability system and advocate for change.

September-December 2021

After identifying the ten keys to unlocking a STEM mindset, this team will create tools for teachers to apply these practices in the classroom.

This project addresses the work environment catalyst, a 100Kin10 priority area. Learn more here.
