What Is NASATalk? PDF Print E-mail

Students prepare to launch rocketsWelcome to NASATalk! We at the NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future designed NASATalk to build on what we started with the EdTech Collaborative website, but now have a more focused purpose. NASATalk is a Web 2.0 site where educators can come to share ideas, suggestions, success stories, and even frustrations about using NASA resources to enhance STEM teaching and learning.

We changed the name and presentation of this Joomla-based content collaborative to make our focus more clear to our target audience. As we celebrate the start of this new collaborative, we invite educators to join us in NASATalk.

To get started, here are some things we learned from teachers regarding how their collaborations with NASA positively impacted their school’s STEM education program.

  • A middle school in Florida started a new curriculum focusing on astronomy, aeronautics, robotics, and space technology based on NASA educational materials and access to NASA expertise. More than 100 students signed up to take these new STEM-related electives. NASA resources used in this new curriculum included Moon Math Challenge, FIRST Robotics, and NASA Science Family Night resources.
  • A middle school teacher uses the Digital Learning Network to bring live NASA videoconferences to students and to connect live with a housebound student.
  • Another middle school posts NASA print resources on bulletin boards in its cafeteria and regularly updates the presentations with mission activities, science themes, and current events at NASA. Teachers and students use NASA online resources in their science classrooms.
