Abstract

During a high school/university collaboration, students learned several science and information technology topics related to hurricanes and produced a multimedia documentary of personal experiences with Hurricane Katrina. The purpose of this project was to motivate students to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics topics by linking the learning activities to personal experiences with Hurricane Katrina. In addition, this project allowed students to participate in constructive activities that can help with feelings of stress and hopelessness. This project also provided an opportunity for graduate teacher education students to collaborate and conduct research with the university faculty and high school students in a technology-enhanced learning environment.
