The 6E Learning Model
The 6E Learning Model

The ITEEA 6E Learning byDeSIGn™ Model provides a student-centered framework for instruction that leverages the T and E of STEM as it integrates content in a purposeful and informed way.

When the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) document, (NRC, 2013) was released in April 2013, teachers in the profession had mixed emotions. Many viewed the standards as invasive to their classrooms, while others found them a refreshing take on what technology and engineering educators have been doing for years.

The reality is that NGSS provides an opportunity to Engage, Explore, Explain, eNGINEER, Enrich, and Evaluate technology and engineering programs and classrooms within the school and greater community. As stated by Sanders (2011), NGSS validates an integrative STEM approach by recognizing that technology and engineering provide opportunities for students to develop deeper knowledge about science.

    The little "e" for Engineering
    Teachers often are challenged to see where the "hands-on" can be found in the 5-E lesson planning model. Learning byDeSIGN is a way for teachers to identify where the application of concepts are explicitly planned out. Thank you for posting!
