Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2002 (2002) p. 569
The World Wide Web has diffused from a handful of K-12 schools in the United States in 1993 to near ubiquity in 2001. At present, middle and high schools use the WWW as a vehicle for advertising the school and its mission, extracurricular activities ...
Electronic community: The role of an electronic network in the development of a community of teachers engaged in curriculum development and implementation
(1997) pp. 1–165
The goal of this study was to describe the development of an electronic community of teachers who had the common experience of working on a Human Biology Curriculum Project through Stanford University. It was hypothesized that the interdisciplinary...
THREE COMPUTERS IN THE BACK OF THE CLASSROOM: PRESERVICE TEACHERS’ CONCEPTIONS OF TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2001 (2001) pp. 1671–1676
Faced with a new generation of pre-service teachers, teacher educators may easily assume that these young men and women are technology savvy and have mastered the skills required to word process, create presentations, surf the web, email professors...
The Impact of Three-Dimensional Computational Modeling on Student Understanding of Astronomy Concepts: A Qualitative Analysis. Research Report
International Journal of Science Education Vol. 26, No. 13 (Oct 29, 2004) pp. 1555–1575
In this study, we explore an alternate mode for teaching and learning the dynamic, three-dimensional (3D) relationships that are central to understanding astronomical concepts. To this end, we implemented an innovative undergraduate course in which...
The Impact of Three-Dimensional Computational Modeling on Student Understanding of Astronomical Concepts: A Quantitative Analysis
International Journal of Science Education Vol. 26, No. 11 (Sep 17, 2004) pp. 1365–1378
The increased availability of computational modeling software has created opportunities for students to engage in scientific inquiry through constructing computer-based models of scientific phenomena. However, despite the growing trend of...
Design and Implementation of an On-line Professional Development Community: A Project-Based Learning Approach in a Graduate Seminar
Electronic Journal of Science Education Vol. 5, No. 3 (2001)
Reports on the design and implementation of a project-based learning environment for a graduate seminar that immersed students in a real-world context. This seminar experience was organized around the design and creation of a real-world "tangible...
The Virtual Solar System Project: Developing Conceptual Understanding of Astronomical Concepts through Building Three-Dimensional Computational Models
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 11, No. 3 (2002) pp. 261–75
Describes the Virtual Solar System (VSS) course which is one of the first attempts to integrate three-dimensional (3-D) computer modeling as a central component of introductory undergraduate education. Assesses changes in student understanding of...
