The High-Adventure Science modules, first written in 2011-2013, are each based on a big unanswered question in Earth/environmental science. These six modules include interactive computer-based systems models and real-world data that students use for evidence as they develop scientific arguments. The modules incorporate real-world data from the National Aeronautic and Space Administration, National Oceanic and […]
The Concord Consortium and Michigan State University are collaborating to research technological, curricular, and pedagogical scaffolds needed to support students and teachers in developing computational thinking in the context of system modeling.
We’re enabling new modes of experimentation and fostering levels of learner reasoning about complex systems and systems dynamics that are not currently possible by merging MIT’s StarLogo and the Concord Consortium’s SageModeler.
Michigan State University and the Concord Consortium are collaborating to examine how to support secondary school students in constructing and revising models based on disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts to explain scientific phenomena.
