Construction, Categorization, and Consensus: Student Generated Computational Artifacts as a Context for Disciplinary Reflection
Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 62, No. 1 (February 2014) pp. 99–121
There are increasing calls to prepare K-12 students to use computational tools and principles when exploring scientific or mathematical phenomena. The purpose of this paper is to explore whether and how constructionist computer-supported...
(2012) pp. 1–342
My dissertation explores the beginnings of a reformulation of calculus—what I call the "Calculus of Complex Systems" (CCS). Mathematical models of change have long been used to study phenomena, make predictions, and communicate about our world. But...
Balancing Curricular and Pedagogical Needs in Computational Construction Kits: Lessons from the DeltaTick Project
Science Education Vol. 99, No. 3 (May 2015) pp. 465–499
To successfully integrate simulation and computational methods into K-12 STEM education, learning environments should be designed to help educators maintain balance between (a) addressing curricular content and practices and (b) attending to student ...
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 24, No. 2 (2015) pp. 204–251
The learning sciences community has made significant progress in understanding how people think and learn about complex systems. But less is known about how people make sense of the quantitative patterns and mathematical formalisms often used to...
Exploring Shifts in Middle School Learners' Modeling Activity While Generating Drawings, Animations, and Computational Simulations of Molecular Diffusion
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 24, No. 2 (April 2015) pp. 396–415
Modeling and using technology are two practices of particular interest to K-12 science educators. These practices are inextricably linked among professionals, who engage in modeling activity with and across a variety of representational technologies....
