The primary goal of this project is to help teachers learn to use NSDL resources in ways that meaningfully affect their practice in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) content areas, while also increasing their skills as designers of learning activities. Secondary goals will examine the extent that this approach helps teachers effectively increase 1) technology integration and 2) STEM content knowledge by engaging in sustained use of NSDL resources (Davis & Krajcik, 2005).
