Public Draft of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Published
The second and final public draft of the NGSS was released Tuesday, January 8, 2013.  Comment period closes January 29. For more information, go to the NASATalk Next Generation Science Standards collaborative group.  All interested science educators are encouraged to join NGSS discussion opportunities.

New Venues for Distance Learning
Use of video conferencing to support distance education and collaboration continues to expand.  Technology tools support multiple opportunities for video-based distance learning.  While room-sized video collaboration systems facilitate high-quality video communication in a group setting, desktop video conferencing offers personal video collaboration with less expensive camera and audio requirements.  Emerging technologies facilitate a “telepresence” style of video collaboration that provides an immersive communications experience. 

Those interested in exploring how to strategically use telepresence and other video-technology tools are encouraged to check out one of the new NASATalk collaborative groups called, Easy Tools for the 3D Teacher. We encourage members of the NASATalk STEM education community to join Roy Jenkins, organizer of this new collaborative, in his efforts to form up a community of practice specifically dealing with the design and use of a state-of-the-art 3D system for education and collaboration.
