Teaching and Learning in the Classroom of (Digital) Things
Friday, September 1, 2017 1:00PM to 2:30PM
LSRI 1535, 1240 W Harrison Street

New technologies enable new forms of interaction, changing the ways that classroom communities can engage both with objects of inquiry and with one another. In this talk, we describe on our experiences in designing technologies to support whole classes in multi-week investigations of scientific phenomena in which the “Classroom of Things” becomes both the locus and focus of collective, embodied inquiry and knowledge construction.
