Integrating Technology for Meaningful Pedagogical Strategies
The purpose of this project is to prepare science educators to be flexible in their pedagogical content strategies. There is a strong emphasis on appropriate and meaningful technology integration in both the in-person and distance learning environments. The project also incorporates informal learning opportunities to best prepare teacher candidates. The teacher candidates supported by the project will integrate large-scale environmental data, from their informal experiences, with technology-enhance computational thinking and analysis. Our partners in the New York City Metro area afford exclusive experiences for our teacher candidates to better prepare them for the workforce and the uncertainties of teaching in the 21st century. The ultimate goal of this project is to train teacher candidates to best inform the next generation of informed citizens who take intrinsic interest in science and make decisions based on evidence.
