Combining High-Speed Cameras and Stop-Motion Animation Software to Support Students’ Modeling of Human Body Movement

Biomechanics, and specifically the biomechanics associated with human movement, is a potentially rich backdrop against which educators can design innovative science teaching and learning activities. Moreover, the use of technologies associated with biomechanics research, such as high-speed cameras that can produce high-quality slow-motion video, can be deployed in such a way to support students’ participation in practices of scientific modeling.

Lessons learned from an initial effort to bring a Quantified Self "meetup" experience to a new demographic

Quantified Self “meetup” groups appear to be appeal largely to middle-aged white males. What happens when the target demographic is changed to high school-aged Latina girls? This paper summarizes two lessons learned from an initial effort to enact a version of a Quantified Self meetup with youth from this population. Specifically, the appearances of the devices and limited access to resources outside of the meetup sessions were major concerns.

Resource Format: 

Evaluation work is presented and discussed in terms of evaluative requirements from the National Science Foundation, and in terms of five fundamental issues that undergird practical program evaluation: social programming, knowledge construction, valuing, knowledge use, and evaluation practice.  The report moves through six phases of evaluative work: (1) a logic modeling process, (2) definition of evaluative focus areas, (3) clarification of evaluative questions, (4) design of the evaluation plan, (5) collection and analysis of data, and (6) provision of evaluative information to stakeholder
