An Education Program of the National Park Service

Training

The River Mile’s teacher training is overseen by Pacific Education Institute. Pacific Education Institute provides educator training throughout Washington State to get students outdoors. “PEI works with Washington’s education system, providing tools that meet current and developing state educational requirements such as NGSS and Common Core, and collaborating with School Districts to bring our broad suite of FieldSTEM® tools and resources to address the specific needs and goals of each district. Our experienced faculty and broad network bring innovative solutions to the challenges and opportunities facing K-12 schools in the 21st century. Our end goal is that every student in Washington has the chance to use the outdoors as a learning laboratory, and those students become the future stewards of our environment and communities.” PEI website Workshops and webinars are open to all formal and informal educators. Motivated students, especially those from schools participating in on-going monitoring projects, are encouraged and welcome to participate when appropriate. These students can then become mentors within their school. Professional development is offered through a variety of methods including webinars, in person and conference calls. Workshop and webinar availability varies. Each year new training is available based on feedback from the previous year’s participants. Workshops and training webinars come with free clock hours for Washington teachers, certificates of completion for Oregon teachers and for teachers from other states let us know what you need and we will work with you to get you credit! College credit is also available for in-person training at the current fee. Workshop and webinar availability varies.

  • OSPI Informal Science Educator Meeting

    OSPI Informal Science Educator Meeting

    All day
    Feb-07-2018

    Informal Science Education

    For the 2017-2018 school year, OSPI and the Educational Service Districts (ESDs) will co-host a set of meetings to build on our continued collective work. In the past few years, many informal science educators (ISEs) have gathered together on an annual basis in four locations across the state to discuss the relationship between formal and informal science learning.  We invite you to join us again, or for the first time!


    A focus on integrated learning

    You want to support the NGSS in collaboration with local schools, which requires continued growth and partnership.  The NGSS call for many practices, focusing on science in conjunction with engineering, mathematics, and environmental and sustainability education. How do you maintain and capitalize on your strengths as an ISE while also addressing these learning standards?  We’ll explore this question together at these meetings.

    Teacher trainings in FieldSTEM™ are designed to introduce the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and ELA Common Core Standards by exploring NGSS Science and Engineering Practices and ELA performance assessments using the outdoors as the classroom. Pacific Education Institute’s FieldSTEM technique integrates the Washington State Learning Standards (WSLS) with NGSS and Common Core English Language Arts and Math using local areas of each school district as the focus for learning.
