White Paper Ocean Tracks – A Journey Through the Ocean: A Modern Approach to Science Education
Research in the sciences is currently undergoing a massive transformation, as technological advancements shift big data into the forefront of investigative tools, and early education is looking for solutions to keep up.
Scientific Publication Identifying Curriculum Design Patterns as a Strategy for Focusing Geoscience Education Research: A Proof of Concept Based on Teaching and Learning With Geoscience Data
The geoscience education research (GER) enterprise faces a challenge in moving instructional resources and ideas from the well-populated domain of ‘‘practitioners’ wisdom’’ into the research-tested domains of St. John and McNeal’s pyramid of evidence (this volume).
Interface/Tool Tools for Building a Big Data Career Path
The documents included in Tools for Building a Big Data Career Path can assist schools looking to design and implement career pathways in big data. These tools have been used by community colleges involved in the NSF-ATE funded Creating Pathways for Big Data Careers (DUE-1501927).
