Action Plan Intel ISEF 2010 Educator Academy May, 2010 JAPAN Sadahito Tanaka Noyuri Mima Ryoei Chijiiwa Naoko Yanagihara
2 Science Literacy is needed in the 21 st Century
Science Literacy Science Council of Japan set out recommendations for what all students should know and be able to do in STEM by the time they graduate from high school (SCJ, 2008). Science-for-All-Japanese should be laid the groundwork for the nationwide science standards. 3
Learning Not only an individual work Occurs in a collaborative work Shifting the emphasis –From knowledge acquisition –To project-based leaning 4
Current status Not widely spread in Japan –Science Literacy –Project-based learning 5
Goals Disseminate –Science-for-All-Japanese Promote –Project-based learning for the 21st century in elementary and secondary schools Facilitate –Collaboration among industry, schools, and the government 7
Action Publish –Science-for-All-Japanese for STEM teachers, students, and general public Introduce –leading project-based learning cases to high schools Start –a new science fair in Japan Unify –the vast information of science fairs in Japan Network –the people and cultivating the community 8
9 For Sustainable Learning Innovation Through –Science-for-All-Japanese –Project-based learning In –Schools –Organizations –Society as a whole By –Public-Private Partnership

11 High Level Goals What do you want to accomplish for your school, region or country? Look at long-term (3-5 years) and short-term goals (1-2 years) ・ Long term goals –Disseminate “Science Literacy for All Japanese” –Promote project-based learning for the 21 st century in elementary and secondary schools –Promote cooperation among industry, schools, and the government –Create “cool” scientific heroes/heroines (“Young Scientist Awards” from Japanese students!)
12 High Level Goals (cont.) What do you want to accomplish for your school, region or country? Look at long-term (3-5 years) and short-term goals (1-2 years) Short term goals –Make “Science for All Japanese” easy-to-understand to students and science teachers –Introduce leading project-based learning cases to high schools –Start a new science fair in Japan –Unification of the vast information about a lot of science fairs in Japan
13 Objectives How will you know you succeeded? In addition to the current “Science for All Japanese,” new brief handbooks about “Science for All Japanese” are made and used in schools for project-based learning under public-private partnership. Using leading project-based learning cases at Future University-Hakodate, schools in Hakodate City change their education into project-based in collaboration with Intel Teach. Ministry of Education and Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) increase the number of projects for disseminating the experiences of project- based learning in Super Science High Schools to other local schools (increase by more than 10% each year) Japanese Government starts financial support for starting a new science fair in Japan. Students can easily find the opportunities for many science fairs all over the country (held by private companies, governments, academia, etc.) if they refer the lists using online.
14 Action Plan – Steps to Meet Your Goals and Objectives ActionMeasure success? Who’s Responsible? Deadline? Encourage stakeholders to make brief handbooks about "Science for All Japanese" The handbooks are published or accessible on-line. Dr. Noyuri Mima Naoko Yanagihara August, 2010 Establish fairs to promote cooperation among industry, academia and schools for disseminating "Science for All Japanese" during science and technology weeks. New fairs starts during science and technology weeks. Dr. Noyuri Mima Ryoei Chijiiwa November, 2010 Promote cooperation between Future University-Hakodate and schools in Hakodate City and introduce the University's project- based learning experience to schools Handbooks of project-based learning with science literacy are made Dr. Noyuri Mima Naoko Yanagihara November, 2011
ActionMeasure success? Who’s Responsible? Deadline? Increase projects for disseminating Super Science High Schools' experiences to other local schools The number of the projects increases by more than 10% each year. Ryoei Chijiiwa Sadahito Tanaka May, 2011 Start planning for a new science fair in Japan The new science fair starts Ryoei ChijiiwaMarch, 2012 Make and provide lists of science fairs over the country The lists are opened to public Sadahito TanakaMarch, 2011 15 Action Plan – Steps to Meet Your Goals and Objectives (cont.)
16 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Reflection As a result of your participation in the 2010 Educator Academy, reflect on your experience –Highlight what your team felt was the key learning from the Educator Academy Having strong cooperation with media is a key to increase the popularity of science fairs (ex. Costa Rica). Some countries have succeeded in establishing public-private partnership (ex. China). U.S. Intel ISEF alumni have intelligence, smartness, and the passion (we are impressed by the shop talk of Mr. Stephen Trusheim). “If I act, I can change the world!” Intel invests a lot of money for educating next-generation.
17 Intel ISEF Educator Academy (cont.) Reflection –Which Shop Talks were the most beneficial for your team? Sheila Porter from Ireland, Theresa Clark from Arizona: passionate and sustainable activities Mary Helen Bialas from Costa Rica Stephen Trusheim from Minnesota Carol Qin from China –What types of Shop Talks were missing? Hope to have 30 minutes for interactive activity in each talk. Should make target audience more clear in advance Also we want to know other governments’ approaches and other companies’ CSR activities.
