Twitter Chat 2013-12-04, 8 pm:The Ways Technology Can Improve Student Engagement and Learning in STEM & Engineering Education

Topic: The Ways Technology Can Improve Student Engagement and Learning in STEM & Engineering Education

Co-Host: Tom Nicknish, Director of Sales & Marketing of Cyber-Anatomy (@CyberAnatomy)


The Big Beacon seeks ways to improve student engagement and learning in engineering and STEM education at all levels. Many innovators have turned to technological means of delivery (Khan Academy & MOOCs, for example) or technological means of raising engagement and learning directly (AutoDesk, Lego, Matlab, Maple, Simulink, Cyber-Anatomy Corp. etc.) in the quest for generating and keeping student interest in STEM subjects and engineering education.
The twitter chat on Wednesday, 4 December 2013, at 8pm Eastern (Hashtag #BigBeacon) explores the roles and limitations of technology in boosting student engagement and learning in STEM and engineering education. Co-host for the session is Tom Nicknish, Director of Sales and Marketing of Cyber-Anatomy, a pioneer in the use of technology as a way to boost student engagement in learning. Tom will co-host the chat with Big Beacon President, Dave Goldberg. Join us for an important discussion of a timely topic. All STEM and engineering educators, students (and their supporters), employers, entrepreneurs, tool purveyors, and practitioners are welcome. No exceptions.
