NSF STEM Panel: Effectively Using Video for Outreach and Dissemination
Video has become a key tool for communication, outreach, and dissemination, both within the researcher community and with the general public. This month, four panelists share their strategies for creating and then disseminating their short videos featured in the STEM for All Video Showcase in 2019. These four videos are very different from each other in how they were produced, the level of production quality, the theme that it addresses, and the primary audience that the presenters hope to reach. What they all have in common is that they were very successful in reaching a very large audience who viewed and discussed their work. As we are in the midst of registration to present for the 2020 STEM for All Video Showcase, it is a great time to learn what these presenters did behind the scenes to make their presentations so effective for outreach and dissemination.
In honor of the 2019 Computer Science Education Week theme #CSforGood, CSTA has created a set of 10 posters that feature diverse people using computer science for good in diverse industries and ways -- from helping the blind navigate their surroundings to creating art and discovering new medications.
Teachers can use these posters in a variety of ways to explore #CSforGood and inspire their students to consider how computer science can be leveraged to solve some of the world's most pressing problems.
