Investigating The Effectiveness Of Problem-Based Learning In 3d Virtual Worlds. A Preliminary Report On The Hadrian’S Villa Project, Lee Taylor-Helms, Lynne. Kvapil, John Fillwalk, Bernard Frischer Nov 2014

Investigating The Effectiveness Of Problem-Based Learning In 3d Virtual Worlds. A Preliminary Report On The Hadrian’S Villa Project, Lee Taylor-Helms, Lynne. Kvapil, John Fillwalk, Bernard Frischer

Lynne Kvapil

This paper discusses a recent study to test the effectiveness of combining 3D virtual worlds (VWs) with Problem Based Learning (PBL) in archaeological education of undergraduate college students at two American universities. The testbed used was a virtual world of Hadrian’s Villa at Tivoli (Italy), a World Heritage Site dating to the reign of Hadrian (117-138 CE). At both universities courses were offered on the villa using a PBL approach in such a way that the relative strengths and weaknesses of learning based on face-to-face, 2D, and VW presentations could be assessed. The study helped to clarify ways in ...

Take Flight, Melody Kelly, Hillary Murray, Olivia Robertson, Erica Jack, Michael Hir, Nicholas Schiefer Jun 2014

Take Flight, Melody Kelly, Hillary Murray, Olivia Robertson, Erica Jack, Michael Hir, Nicholas Schiefer

Journal of Interactive Humanities

Take Flight is an educational game prototype. Players learn about the lives of post World War I pilots, as they take on new tasks and find a new way of life. As the pilot interacts with different citizens, he learns about ways in which he can use his plane to help. Fields need to be crop dusted. Packages need to be delivered. Goods need to be smuggled. The pilot's reputation is affected by the types of tasks he chooses to complete. As the game progresses, users learn about everyday uses for planes in the 1920s and about the dangers ...

Content Integration In Elementary Schools, Lauren Lucas Apr 2014

Content Integration In Elementary Schools, Lauren Lucas

College of Education Presentations

There never seems to be enough time to teach all that teachers want to teach and all that is required in elementary schools. The purpose of this inquiry project is to take a deeper look into what it is that teachers are required to teach within the Common Core State Standards and see if there is a way to integrate these standards with other content areas. The goal is to provide more information for teachers and other professional educators as to the benefits and drawbacks of content integration. Research was performed through personal instruction, observations of instruction, and interaction with ...


Parent Management Training-Oregon Model (Pmto™) In Mexico City: Integrating Cultural Adaptation Activities In An Implementation Model, Ana A. Baumann, Melanie M. Domenech Rodríguez, Nancy G. Amador, Marion S. Forgatch, José Rubén Parra-Cardona Mar 2014

Parent Management Training-Oregon Model (Pmto™) In Mexico City: Integrating Cultural Adaptation Activities In An Implementation Model, Ana A. Baumann, Melanie M. Domenech Rodríguez, Nancy G. Amador, Marion S. Forgatch, José Rubén Parra-Cardona

Psychology Faculty Publications

This article describes the process of cultural adaptation at the start of the implementation of the Parent Management Training intervention-Oregon model (PMTO) in Mexico City. The implementation process was guided by the model, and the cultural adaptation of PMTO was theoretically guided by the cultural adaptation process (CAP) model. During the process of the adaptation, we uncovered the potential for the CAP to be embedded in the implementation process, taking into account broader training and economic challenges and opportunities. We discuss how cultural adaptation and implementation processes are inextricably linked and iterative and how maintaining a collaborative relationship with the ...

Class(Ed)Room: Individualized Student Disciplinary Policies As Ignoring The Current Economic Order, Nicole H. Awwad Feb 2014

Class(Ed)Room: Individualized Student Disciplinary Policies As Ignoring The Current Economic Order, Nicole H. Awwad

Capstone Collection

Students are socialized into the institution of education at an early age. Obedience to authority is the objective of much of the learning done in school. Teacher expectations and perceptions of students affect student behavioral and academic performance within the context of school. Student economic and material conditions affect their availability for learning in the school setting. This research questions the application of discipline policies across a student body with diverse academic, economic and social histories. In this case study of one rural Vermont school - tracking, teacher expectations and student economic, academic and behavioral history are assessed for correlation. Analysis ...


Double Flip: 3 Insights Flipping The Humanities Seminar, Kathi Berens Jan 2014

Double Flip: 3 Insights Flipping The Humanities Seminar, Kathi Berens

Kathi Berens

"Flipped" classroom, where homework problem sets are done in class students engage lecture materials outside of class, was designed for STEM learners. Is there an equivalent gesture appropriate to the humanities classroom?

This report details three lessons learned "flipping" a humanities seminar when the professor was obliged to miss three weeks of classroom instruction. Students prepared collaborative close readings of assigned materials and uploaded them to YouTube, which the professor could view from anywhere in the world.


Starting From Scratch: Meaningful Integration Of Information Literacy Through Collaborative Course And Assignment Design, Chris Sweet, Meghan Burke Jan 2014

Starting From Scratch: Meaningful Integration Of Information Literacy Through Collaborative Course And Assignment Design, Chris Sweet, Meghan Burke

Scholarly Publications

Instruction librarians are all too familiar with well-intentioned research papers and assignments that reduce information literacy to a simplistic checklist (must include 4 peer-reviewed sources) or set of skills (use interlibrary loan, cite materials properly). Librarians and classroom faculty should recognize that information literacy cannot just be magically imparted to students through a single assignment or library instruction session. Becoming information literate requires repeated practice in a variety of contexts. How often have you wished for the opportunity to just sit down with a faculty member and start from scratch when designing an assignment –or even better- an entire course ...

The Role Of School District Science Coordinators In The District-Wide Appropriation Of An Online Resource Discovery And Sharing Tool For Teachers, Victor R. Lee, Heather M. Leary, Linda Sellers, Mimi Recker Jan 2014

The Role Of School District Science Coordinators In The District-Wide Appropriation Of An Online Resource Discovery And Sharing Tool For Teachers, Victor R. Lee, Heather M. Leary, Linda Sellers, Mimi Recker

Instructional Technology and Learning Sciences Faculty Publications

When introducing and implementing a new technology for science teachers within a school district, we must consider not only the end users but also the roles and influence district personnel have on the eventual appropriation of that technology. School districts are, by their nature, complex systems with multiple individuals at different levels in the organization who are involved in supporting and providing instruction. Varying levels of support for new technologies between district coordinators and teachers can sometimes lead to counterintuitive outcomes. In this article, we examine the role of the district science coordinator in five school districts that participated in ...

Henry's Big Adventure, Kelly Rippeth Jan 2014

Henry's Big Adventure, Kelly Rippeth

Honors Projects

I have written and illustrated a children’s book as well as planned a selection of lesson plans that can be used in addition to the book titled Henry’s BIG Adventure. Illustrated children’s books are very valuable to the development of children by aiding in comprehension. According to Mary Renck Jalongo, author of Young Children and Picture Books, children can learn so much from reading stories, even fiction ones. Henry’s BIG Adventure centers on a young boy who finds an old photo album with pictures of several places he has never been before. The album leads him ...
