Abstract

This research study describes the use of emerging technologies in an innovative community engagement project and provides associated evidence of learning of future elementary teachers. The Community project enhances the community-minded thinking of the young children while simultaneously serving the needs of local environmental education partners. In this project, one science method course is redesigned and a two-semester sequence is established to link a hierarchical community engagement structure to an activity-based curriculum. In feedback on class evaluation surveys, the future teachers demonstrate significant advances related to their confidence in understanding math and science concepts and teaching math and science. They respond favorably to the web-based interactive social media sharing tool and generate meaningful Community Projects.
