Resource | “Zooming In” on Robotics during COVID-19: A Preservice Teacher, an Engineering Student, and a 5th Grader Engineer Robotic Flowers via Zoom
The COVID-19 induced school shutdown dramatically decreased students’ hands-on STEM learning opportunities. An NSF-funded program partnering preservice teachers and undergraduate engineering students to teach robotics to fifth graders was adapted to a virtual format via Zoom. A case study intimately explored one team’s experience as they engineered bio-inspired robots over five weekly sessions....

Resource | Competencies and Behaviors Observed When Students Solve Geometry Proof Problems: An Interview Study with Smartpen Technology
This peer-reviewed research journal publication addresses one of the grant goals with respect to how students performed on a set of proof tasks. Student work was documented through the use of smartpen technology which allowed the researchers to "track" students' written work on the proof tasks as well as hear the students' explanations of their thinking about the tasks. Although the two tasks...
