Data Nuggets

Data Nuggets are free classroom activities, co-designed by scientists and teachers, designed to bring contemporary research and authentic data into the classroom. Data Nuggets include a connection to the scientist behind the data and the true story of their research. Each activity gives students practice working with “messy data” and interpreting quantitative information.

Short Description: 

Data Nuggets are free classroom activities, co-designed by scientists and teachers, designed to bring contemporary research and authentic data into the classroom. Students are guided through the entire process of science, including identifying hypotheses and predictions, visualizing and interpreting data, making evidence based claims, and asking their own questions for future research.

Maximizing the Quality of Learning Opportunities for Every Student

For five decades, JRME has sought to publish high-quality mathematics education research that advances the field’s knowledge and has a positive impact on the teaching and learning of mathematics in the classroom. The journal’s 50th anniversary represents an opportune time for the research community to take a step back, assess what progress has been made on the major problems of the field, and consider the most important problems that could orient research in the future.

Pre-service Teachers’ Conceptions of Mathematical Argumentation

Drawing on a situated perspective on learning, we analyzed written, open-ended journals of 52 pre-service teachers (PSTs) concurrently enrolled in mathematics and pedagogy with field experience courses for elementary education majors. Our study provides insights into PSTs’ conceptualizations of mathematical argumentation in terms of its meanings. The data reveals how PSTs perceive teacher actions, teaching strategies, classroom expectations, mathematics content, and tasks that facilitate student engagement in mathematical argumentation.

Simulations as a Tool for Practicing Questioning

In this chapter we discuss some of the affordances and constraints of using online teaching simulations to support reflection on specific pedagogical actions. We share data from a research project in which we implemented multiple iterations of a set of simulated teaching experiences in an elementary mathematics methods course. In each experience, preservice teachers contrasted the consequences of different pedagogical choices in response to a particular example of student thinking.

Navigating the Academic Job: Developing Your Identity as an Early Career Scholar

At the 2017 American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting, faculty from different institutions gathered to address this question during a Division C Fireside Chat session entitled “Navigating the Academic Job: Perspective from Deans, Late-Career Faculty, and New faculty at Varying Universities.” Division C, the Learning & Instruction Division, is dedicated to mentoring graduate students and early career scholars; the fireside chat format offers participants an open forum to discuss topics of interest with a particular group of professionals.

Research and Product Dissemination and Sustainability: Approaches and Considerations

Many, if not most, DRK–12 projects grapple with challenges and opportunities related to dissemination and sustainability. Dissemination strategies to optimize the visibility of a project and reach of key research outputs may be part of a larger sustainability plan to support uptake of research products, models, and interventions and extend the impact of the project results.

Short Description: 

This document features issues and approaches that were discussed by a “critical friends group” in the process of providing input to a DRK-12 project on dissemination strategies. While not comprehensive, the considerations listed may serve as a reminder of what to think through when you are conceptualizing and designing your next research and development project.

Principles for Designing Large-Format Refreshable Haptic Graphics Using Touchscreen Devices: An Evaluation of Nonvisual Panning Methods

Touchscreen devices, such as smartphones and tablets, represent a modern solution for providing graphical access to people with blindness and visual impairment (BVI). However, a significant problem with these solutions is their limited screen real estate, which necessitates panning or zooming operations for accessing large-format graphical materials such as maps.
