Resource | Length Measurement in the Early Years: Teaching and Learning with Learning Trajectories
Measurement is a critical component of mathematics education, but research on the learning and teaching of measurement is limited. We previously introduced, refined, and validated a developmental progression – the cognitive core of a learning trajectory – for length measurement in the early years. A complete learning trajectory includes instructional activities and pedagogical strategies,...

Resource | Impacts of Attending an Inclusive STEM High School: Meta-analytImpacts of Attending an Inclusive STEM High School: Meta-analytic Estimates from Five Studiesic Estimates from Five Studies
BackgroundInclusive STEM high schools seek to broaden STEM participation by accepting students on the basis of interest rather than test scores and providing a program sufficient to prepare students for a STEM major in college. Almost nonexistent before the present century, these high schools have proliferated over the last two decades as a strategy for addressing gaps in STEM education and...

Blog | Building Flexible Modality Layers to Support Inclusive Educational Technologies
Educational technologies provide an avenue for engaging students in learning through computer-facilitated experiences.  These tools provide opportunities for learners to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) content in ways they may not otherwise have available (D’Angelo et al., 2014). Simulations are one type of technology which can support interaction while isolating...
