UMass STEM Ed Institute Presents: Tuesday STEM Seminar
February 3, 4 PM, Hasbrouck 138
AECERN, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute
"Mobile Platform for Data Capture and Use in the Class and Beyond"
Discoveries made by our students can inspire deep and lasting learning.
But there are many challenges to setting up effective discovery-based
learning opportunities. Aecern is a non-profit education organization
based in Woods Hole, MA that is exploring how technology can help by
providing tools and structure to guide and facilitate data capture and
use, both in the classroom and beyond. In collaboration with teachers in
MA and throughout the US we are building the Aecern Discovery Hub. This
free learning platform prompts students to capture discoveries they make
through a mobile app (for iPad, iPhone only at this time). Their
discoveries are automatically made available to them online through our
website, where they can be reviewed, shared, and incorporated into
learning activities. Teachers can either build their own version of the
Aecern app, or use one designed by our community of discovery educators.
During this presentation we'll give a hands-on introduction to the Aecern
Discovery Hub, provide an update on our progress to date, and put out a
call for educators (you?) who would like to collaborate with us to help
make this clearning resource great.
STEM seminars are held at 4PM on the first and third Tuesdays of each
month during the academic year in Hasbrouck 138
