Howdy! I'm the science education coordinator for a regional education support agency in Northwest Washington State, USA. In my work supporting and facilitating transition to the Next Generation Science Standards, I try to help people understand the science and engineering practices... including the practice of "Using Mathematical and Computational Thinking." Unfortunately, there is very little out there to help operationally define what this means in an educational context, so I'm here to learn more and help others in my region wrap their own heads around it.

Welcome +Brian MacNevin to the community. We hope this course will encourage discussion amongst educators about the NGSS and computational thinking and look forward to hearing more from you.

For the mailing "subject", do you specify that as a variable just like the message?

+Brian MacNevin Hmmm...that's a good question. I've never done it before, but I'd try surrounding the bcc emails with brackets to make an array: bcc: [ userEmail1, userEmail2] 

Check out the examples that uses options and lists bcc as an advanced parameter here: https://developers.google.com/apps-script/reference/mail/mail-app

Comment back and let me know if that works. I'm intrigued now....

I'm curious. You state that in HS kids can really start to evaluate the data and decide how good it is. But using box plots, students can start that level of scrutiny of their data starting in 6th grade (CCSS-m places box plots in grade 6). Is there any reason why you might not engage middle school students in the evaluation of their data? Or is this based purely upon the coherence as described in the Framework for Science Education? Thanks! These videos are REALLY helpful!

There was a nice template on this site for planning a NGSS lesson as well.

So... This is some negative press on 1:1 programs. I know there are good example out there... any citations for them?
School officials at one Hoboken school thought it was a no-brainer to give every student a laptop. Now they've decided it was a terrible idea.
