EAGER: Collaborative Research: Designing Digital Rails to Foster Scientific Curiosity around Museum Collections

PIs: Steven McGee, Michael Horn, Northwestern University (Award Details) Jaap Hoogstraten, Matt Matcuk, Field Museum of Natural History (Award Details) One of the best ways to engage people in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at a young age is through informal museum experiences. Yet, the research base on understanding how learning and engagement develops […]

DIP: ScienceKit for ScienceEverywhere – A Seamless Scientizing Ecosystem for Raising Scientifically-Minded Children

PIs: Tamara Clegg, June Ahn, Jason Yip University of Maryland College Park Award Details Although for years researchers have believed technology could afford anytime-anywhere learning, we still don’t understand how learners behave differently across contexts, such as home, school, and in the community, and how to get youth to identify as learners across those contexts. […]

EXP: Transforming High School Science via Remote Online Labs

PIs: Kemi Jona, David Uttal Northwestern University Award Details The PIs seek to understand better how online remote labs can be made to function effectively in high-school science classes, especially focusing on the roles of teachers as they facilitate investigations around those labs and how to support teachers in their roles. The big research issue […]

EXP: Collaborative Research: A cyber-ensemble of inversion, immersion, collaborative workspaces, query and media-making in mathematics classrooms

PI: Eric Hamilton, Pepperdine University (Award Details) Wayne Ward, Ronald Cole, Boulder Language Technologies (Award Details) In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education EXP project, the PIs focus on designing classrooms as collaborative workspaces and learning how such learning environments can foster learning well. They are addressing these issues in high school mathematics classrooms. Learners view videos […]

DIP: Collaborative Research: Taking Hands-on Experimentation to the Cloud: Comparing Physical and Virtual Models in Biology on a Massive Scale

PIs: Ingmar Hans Riedel-Kruse, Paulo Blikstein Stanford University Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education DIP project, the PIs are building and evaluating a technological and curricular infrastructure to empower scalable, low-cost experimentations for undergraduates and K-12 students in the life sciences. The infrastructure exploits two technologies that have been developed by the PIs: biotic […]

DIP: BioSim: Developing a Wearable Toolkit for Teaching Complex Science Through Embodied Play

PIs: Kylie Peppler, Armin Moczek, Joshua Danish Indiana University Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education DIP (Development and Implementation) Project, the PIs focus on better promoting science learning in early elementary school (grades K-3). They focus in the discipline of life sciences, with specific focus on complex biological systems. The approach to learning about […]

EXP: Exploring the Potential of Mobile Augmented Reality for Scaffolding Historical Inquiry Learning

PIs: Doug Bowman, David Hicks, Jeffrey Ogle, David Cline Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Award Details In this Cyberlearning: Transforming Education EXP project, researchers are addressing how and for what purposes Augmented Reality (AR) technologies can be used to support learning of critical inquiry strategies and processes; the question is being explored in the […]

CAP: Partnerships for Indigenous Knowledge and Digital Literacies

PIs: Jon Reinhardt, Susan Penfield University of Arizona Award Details This project lays the academic foundations for collaborations between researchers and indigenous American Indian community-based language practitioners for the purpose of developing a socio-technical means of, in parallel, preserving ancient indigenous languages and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK), and helping indigenous youth learn traditional languages and […]

EXP: Collaborative Research: Using Smartphone-Based Participatory Simulations to Engage Children in Scientific Thinking

PIs: Elliot Soloway, Christopher Poulsen, Michael Bailey, Joseph Krajcik University of Michigan Ann Arbor Award Details This project is investigating the potential that the combination of mobile devices and cloud computing offers to engage middle school children in scientific exploration using the same simulations and other tools that scientists employ to decompose, visualize, and understand […]

DIP: Collaborative Research: Transforming Science Learning with an Interactive Web Environment for Data Sharing and Visualization

Fred Martin, Michelle Scribner-MacLean, University of Massachusetts Lowell (Award Details) Samuel Christy, Machine Science Inc. (Award Details) In this Cyberlearning Design and Implementation Project, the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) and a non-profit collaborator, Machine Science Inc. of Cambridge, Massachusetts, are studying classroom implementations of a web platform that helps middle school and high school […]
