In addition, school counselors can subscribe to a free newsletter which focuses on technology issues, resources, and activities; and explore free and almost free resources. Finally, you will want to definitely check out the continually expanding counseling technology resources.
Engineering Case Studies
This Carleton University web site, provides an extensive catalogued collection of over 250 engineering case studies written for use in engineering education. Also available are links to information on writing case studies and use of them in the classroom, along with links to other collections of decision case education material for educators and students. Follow the links to information about case contributors and the engineering institutions they represent. Target group: Engineering students and teachers.
Engineering is Elementary
This Boston Museum of Science web site, offers curricular materials to integrate engineering and technology concepts and skills with elementary science lessons. Links and information are provided to professional development workshops for elementary school teachers and curriculum coordinators, to help them acquire the knowledge of and comfort with engineering concepts and skills. Good online resource for Teachers.
Discover E (Canadian)
Discover E is based in Alberta was created in 1993 in response to a national concern about the shortage of engineers, scientists, and technically literate individuals in Canadian society. Discover E delivers science and engineering directly to your classroom or educational centre through workshops like Introduction to Engineering for Grades 7 -12, and highlights career opportunities and educational branches related to engineering, and makes students aware of the many possibilities that engineering holds for their futures! Each Introduction to Engineering workshop takes 2 hrs and can be conducted in any classroom.
The Generation-E web site provided by the Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada, provides students with an interactive exploration of engineering innovations, career paths and opportunities, with supporting resources for teachers and guidance counselors. The site provides links covering 14 different fields of engineering with profiles in particular engineering disciplines along with a downloadable career magazine for Canadian university engineering students, containing articles of interest. The site is geared to secondary students, university students, teachers, and guidance counselors.
Lessons in Technology
This web site, sponsored by an American Outreach Program, provides comprehensive science and technology lessons and activities at the early elementary, middle school, later elementary, and high school levels. Links for teachers, parents, and students are also available to science, academic and career mentoring information sites and programs. The site is a valuable tool for teachers and parents.
Programs and Projects
This IEEE (world's largest technical professional association) web site, contains links to a variety of national programs and projects that either provide support to teachers, or encourage students in the study of science, mathematics, engineering, and/or technology. Comprehensive internet links to Engineering resources and information are available for associations, lesson plans, teaching kits, government sites, educational standards, museums, and other sites that provide educational support materials.
