DescriptionPRESENTATION: Janice will speak on the Modeling Across the Curriculum (www.mac.concord.org) and the Making Thinking Visible (http://mtv.concord.org) projects. In the MAC project, we are investigating how technology can be used to promote deep understanding of science content and of the nature of science and the nature of models while fostering inquiry skills and improving attitudes toward science learning in physical science, biology, and chemistry classes. We are aslo addressing how we can harness technology in order to scale up this type of intervention up on a broad scale. In the MTV project, Janice will address how we can promote students’ content knowledge and epistemological knowledge using WISE (Web-based Inquiry Science Environment; Linn & Hsi, 2000) in an authentic context of studying plate tectonics.
(Email: jgobert@concord.org) Janice Gobert, PhD is Senior Research Scientist at The Concord Consortium (www.concord.org), Concord, MA, USA and North American editor of the International Journal of Science Education (www.tandf.co.uk/journals). She received her Ph.D. in 1994 from the Center for Applied Cognitive Science at the University of Toronto and was a Spencer Post-Doctoral Fellow (1995-1997). She was Faculty in the Dept. of Science Studies, Western Michigan University from 1996-1998. Currently, Janice is the Co-Principal Investigator and Research Director on the Modeling Across the Curriculum (MAC) project (mac.concord.org), a large-scale research and implementation project funded by the Interagency Education Research Initiative. She is also the Internship Director for the newly funded National Science Foundation TELS (Technology Enhanced Learning in Science-www.telscenter.org/) center. Janice has also been principal investigator or co-principal investigator on numerous other projects (see http://mtv.concord.org for details).
