EiE Video Library Adds New Classroom Videos


EiE's "Classroom Videos" show real teachers demonstrating effective strategies.
Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Engineering is Elementary (EiE) has added three new sets of videos to the online "Classroom Video" collection. They cover the following EiE units:

These highly engaging short videos are designed to help elementary teachers see the flow of EiE's hands-on engineering lessons. They give teachers who are new to using EiE—or are experienced, but looking to improve their practice—a chance to observe effective teaching strategies and learn solutions to common classroom challenges. 

The ultimate goal for EiE's videography team is to create a video collection for elementary teachers that covers all 20 of the EiE units. To show viewers a range of teaching techniques, the team is collecting video footage in two different classrooms, in widely separated geographic locations, for each of the 20 units. The end result from each classroom visit is a set of four (or sometimes five) videos that step through each of the four lessons in a unit.

We thank the teachers who generously welcomed us into their classrooms to create these new classroom videos: Cerissa Myers of Napa Junction Elementary in American Canyon, CA; Linda Kurtz of Dunleith Elementary School in Marietta, GA; and Chentel Neat of Colbert Elementary School in Hollywood, FL. 

EiE’s video library is being developed with support from Cognizant and The Gordon Foundation.

Engineering is Elementary is a project of the National Center for Technological Literacy at the Museum of Science, Boston.
