Leveraging Open Source Tools across NSF-funded Projects: Partnerships, Integration Models, and Developer Communities

STEM Categorization: 
Day: 
Fri

Discuss the potential utility of CODAP and other open source tools in your work, effective cross-project partnerships, and supporting developer communities around open source materials.

Date/Time: 
9:15 am to 10:45 am
Session Materials: 

Goal: Participants will explore the spectrum of “working together” from collaboration to community. Alongside participant examples, CODAP will be used as a model to explore the range of possibilities.

Objectives: That participants

Webinar on the Common Guidelines for Education Research and Development

Year: 
2014
Short Description: 
This webinar, led by Edith Gummer (formerly of NSF), discusses the guidelines outlined in the report co-authored by the Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education and the National Science Foundation.

Learning as a Community: Maximizing the Impact of Research Syntheses in Science Education

Day: 
Tues

This interactive session is designed to promote critical thinking about current research practices and integrate a variety of perspectives on research syntheses and how they can help advance education research.

Date/Time: 
1:45 pm to 3:45 pm
2014 Session Types: 
Collaborative Panel Session
Session Materials: 

Examples of research practices that limit the validity of research syntheses are not difficult to find. For example, Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC), and Abt Associates reported in their Compendium of STEM Instruments that psychometric reporting practices in the STEM community tend to be insufficient, and this limited what they could learn from their synthesis.

Powering Up for the Head Start on Science Program: Using Power Analysis to Plan the Sample Size Required for a Multi-Site Cluster Randomized Trial

This intermediate session demonstrated how we conducted an a priori power analysis for a longitudinal,multisite cluster randomized trial of an early childhood science education program, then later revised it to accommodate budget changes suggested by the funder without compromising the viability of the study. We covered how the research questions, design, and analysis plan informed the power analysis approach; the software we used; and what the input parameters required actually represent.

Networks and Social Media for STEM Educators, Policymakers, and Researchers

In this pdf are STEM education networks and social media sources that may be of interest to DR-K12 grantees for the purposes of (1) disseminating knowledge and products and (2) developing partnerships with stakeholders and end users. These networks and social media were chosen because they provide researchers and developers with an opportunity to present their work to individuals that could use, promote, or improve the work.
