Exploring Climate Science with Virtual Reality(View Complete Item Description)
Exploring Climate Science With Virtual Reality, a Teacher/Scientist Partnership experience. High school teachers engage with working scientists and engineers to for content learning for climate science and virtual reality and engage in follow-up sessions with professional development facilitators to develop pedagogical expertise for use in creating formative classroom tasks that are formative and productive. It is a three day initial workshop with four follow-up days to 1) deepen teacher understanding by learning with climate scientists to understand climate science standards content knowledge 2) increase awareness and knowledge of the use of virtual reality devices in climate science learning 30 to co-develop a climate science simulation game for use on Oculus Go devices with teachers, their students and a virtual reality scientist/engineer team 4) to develop and implement embedded formative classroom tasks that complement climate science learning by using a relevant, place based phenomena, and provide insights into student thinking and productive next steps in learning.
