SENCER, Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities, will be holding their Mid-Atlantic regional conference at Barnard College.
Have you used wiki’s, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, images on Pinterest, or podcasts or video to communicate about science? Today’s social media tools and web-based activities are just a few of the many ways we can bring interesting and engaging content to students.
Peter Bower, developer of the Brownfield Action model (brownfieldaction.org), hosts this meeting at Barnard College. Peter’s model started as a course activity but evolved into a web-based environmental science simulation. Peter will demonstrate his multi-dimensional digital teaching tool and Joe Liddicoat will explain his modifications and applications of Brownfield Action.
The 2013 “TechEP” Model developer Herb Schanker will guide us through his collection of civic, ethical and political content and materials as they relate to computer technology.
