Have you used wiki’s, blogs, Twitter, Facebook , images on Pinterest, or podcasts or video to communicate about science? Today’s social media tools and web-based activities are just a few of the many ways we can bring the excitement of our content to students.
Peter Bower, model developer of “Brownfield Action” (brownfieldaction.org) hosts our meeting at Barnard College. Peter’s model started as a course activity but evolved into a web-based environmental science simulation. Peter will demonstrate his multi-dimensional digital teaching tool and our colleague Joe Liddicoat will explain his modifications and applications of “Brownfield Action.”
The 2013 “TechEP” Model developer Herb Schanker will guide us through his collection of civic, ethical and political content and materials as they relate to computer technology. Are you using technology tools to teach in STEM? Join us and share your stories. This event is free.
All members of the community are invited and encouraged to share and present about SENCER initiatives. To submit presentations contact Mid-Atlantic SCI Co-Director Monica Devanas at firstname.lastname@example.org
