NOTE: This is a re-release of episode 130 – one of our most popular episodes that we did in the summer of 2015.  Since they first released Good Thinking! last summer, The Smithsonian Science Education Center has been hard at work producing many more of these wonderful, short-format videos to support K-12 science educators. Listen to the episode for the first time or enjoy it again!

From the Smithsonian Science Education Center, we welcome Marjee Chmiel (Associate Director of Curriculum and Communications) and Jean Flanagan (Science Education Research Specialist) to showcase Good Thinking!  – a new animated series that explores topics in science, cognition, and pedagogy.  Using peer-reviewed research, Good Thinking! addresses common student misconceptions with short, animated episodes specifically geared towards science educators. Listen to the episode to find out more about Good Thinking!, and discover a fantastic (and fun) professional development resource.
