Technology Adds Spark to Science Education
The word “cyberlearning” evokes a lot of different images.
It can mean using an augmented reality app on a mobile phone to learn about a city’s history. It can mean working with a remote science lab clear across the world to conduct scientific research about measuring cell phone radiation. For some students, it’s a way to teach other kids about things like astronomy through video games.
In this video, produced by KQED Education in conjunction with Northwestern University’s iLab, which helped organize the Conference on Cyberlearning Tools for STEM Education, we see how technology adds the fuel and fire to science and math education.
Check out the different stories.
