Taking Learning to the Field: Exploring Ecology with Technology
Annual Conference of the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education
Las Vegas, NV
Science is all around us and a large part of science learning takes place in informal settings (Boyce et. al, 2014). This is not always easy to demonstrate to preservice teachers in the confines of a university classroom setting. Integrating technology into preservice teacher education content courses is also not always a priority. This requires collaboration between teacher educators who are passionate about both their content and the practice of teaching. Retrospective surveys, along with student artifacts (iNaturalist postings, iMovies, lesson plans, reflections), were used to determine the impact of this collaborative project.
