DIP: Digital Studios for Social Innovation Networks

PIs: Elizabeth Gerber, Matthew Easterday Northwestern University Award Details This proposal studies how virtual design studios can be used to support networks of people learning how to become the civic innovators of the future. Supporting learning from design and complex problem solving activities includes providing support for successfully solving problems and achieving goals as well […]

EXP: Fostering Collaborative Drawing and Problem Solving through Digital Sketch and Touch

PIs: Emma Mercier, Joshua Peschel, Geoffrey Herm University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Award Details This project’s technology innovation is a set of sketching tools for multi-touch tablets and tables to allow collaborative sketching and sharing between small groups and a whole class. Sketching is often a means of working out and expressing one’s understanding of […]

EAGER: WeatherBlur

PI: Ruth Kermish-Allen Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance Award Details One promising approach to support learning is the use of online learning communities. Another approach is place-based education, in which people learn about concepts through their application in the places people know: their homes, towns, and regions. This project examines an existing experimental online community […]

CI-TEAM Demo: Environmental CyberCitizens: Engaging Citizen Scientists in Global Environmental Change through Crowdsensing and Visualization

PIs: Alex Mayer, Robert Pastel, Charles Wallace, Shawn Opplige, Richard Donovan Michigan Technological University Award Details This demonstration project is creating and evaluating a set of activities aimed at preparing a diverse science and engineering workforce with cyberinfrastructure knowledge and skills. A multidisciplinary team of faculty and undergraduate students is collaborating with citizen scientist end […]

EXP: Enabling Pedagogical Communication Between Learning and Programming Environments

PI: Michael Clancy University of California-Berkeley Award Details Continuing increases in computer power have led to significant advances in iteractive software-development environments (IDEs) that aim to help programmers plan, write, test, and fix programs efficiently. Learning management systems (LMSs), which make available learning resources and activities, have similarly evolved to support good pedagogical practice, such […]
