Abstract

The Foundational Approaches to Science Teaching (FAST) consists of several interdisciplinary science courses that emphasize the foundational concepts and methods of the physical, biological, and earth sciences. The Russians were one of the first international partners to explore the potential of FAST in meeting new goals for teaching science in a more innovative, constructivist manner. The endeavor became known as the World Around Us project which will be featured reports along with a new generation introductory science curriculum (E-56) involving use of computers and telecommunications methodologies Over the years new modes of telecommunication have allowed for various forms of sharing of course development information, student data exchange and Distance Learning – Enrichment (DL-E) reported most recently in applications of the FAST curriculum in Hawaii and Ethiopia.
