Presentation Thoughts on Data Sharing in Geosciences

The Spatial Intelligence & Learning Center convened a small, focused workshop to contemplate the benefits and challenges of establishing a national data archive and data sharing infrastructure for spatial cognition data and associated education data.

Curriculum Ocean Tracks: High School Learning Modules

Supporting students' work with authentic data requires a carefully developed and rigorously-tested curriculum to help them understand what the data represent, and to guide them in how to use data analysis tools and visualizations to identify meaningful patterns and develop evidence-based hypothes

Scientific Publication Analysis of Spatial Concepts, Spatial Skills and Spatial Representations in New York State Regents Earth Science Examinations

Research has shown that spatial thinking is important in science in general, and in Earth Science in particular, and that performance on spatially demanding tasks can be fostered through instruction. Because spatial thinking is rarely taught explicitly in the U.S...

White Paper The Relationship Between Direct and Data-Mediated Knowledge of the World

About 20 years ago, psychologist Lynn Liben presented an model of the relationships among a learner, an external (i.e. not mental) representation, and those aspects of the real world represented by the representation (the “referent”).
