Objectives of PISA
Review of OECD Statistics (PISA 2006)

Are students well prepared for future challenges?

Can they analyze, reason and communicate effectively?

Do they have the capacity to continue learning throughout life?

Surveys of 15-year-olds in the principal industrialized countries.

Every three years, it assesses how far students near the end of
compulsory education have acquired some of the knowledge and
skills essential for full participation in society

Uruguay is not an OECD member but it participated in PISA 2001
and PISA 2006

+ What are we going to do
here today and tomorrow?
The Teacher in Service Program
“Engineering in the Classroom”
+
The Teacher In Service Program (TISP)
A
program that trains IEEE volunteers to work
with pre-university teachers
 Based
on approved Lesson Plans
 Prepared
by IEEE volunteers
 Tested in classrooms
 Associated with Education Standards
 Designed to highlight engineering design principles
 The cost is less than $100 for a class of 30
43
+
The Basic Approach – Lesson Plans
 IEEE
volunteers and consultants develop lesson plans
that highlight an engineering design topic


How to build a balanced mobile (rotational equilibrium)
How to design a sail for a ship (aerodynamic design)
 The
lesson plans are geared toward pre-university
students and are tested in the classroom
 Materials
for a 30-student class cost no more than $100
44
+
How does it work?
 Volunteers
event

of an IEEE Section organize a TISP training
Such as what we are doing here today
 EAB provides
 Volunteers

logistical support and instructors
gather for a day and a half of training
With teachers and school administrators
 Volunteers
districts
spread the program in their school
45
+
Volunteer Training
 Key



questions to be discussed in training:
How to conduct a training sessions for teachers using the TISP
lesson plans?
How to approach the school system to engage teachers?
How to align a lesson plan with local education criteria?
 Teachers and officials
from the education establishment
participate in the training sessions
46
+
47
After The Training…

IEEE volunteers work with the school system
to conduct training sessions for teachers
 Teachers
use the training sessions and the
lesson plans to educate their students IEEE Volunteers
 IEEE
participates in paying for the program
the first year, EAB pays the materials and
supplies expenses for TISP sessions for teachers
 In subsequent years, funding is the responsibility
of the IEEE Section
