STEM Learning through Infographics

Joseph L. Polman & Andee Rubin

In the STEM Learning through Infographics project, a team from University of Colorado, TERC, and Saint Louis University will refine, implement and assess a sociotechnical system involving teens in infographicbased data journalism with the purpose of fostering engagement with STEM and improved scientific/mathematical literacy. We will share infographics that were created by high school students and interns in our EXP project, and share a vision for our system of supporting learners in our new DIP project. The system will involve supports for data search and visualization, with the latter based on studies of mathematical thinking with data visualization tools.
