My graduate Emerging Technologies and Colllaboration course final project was to utilize a mobile application for teaching and learning. They created two SCVNGR games for West Chester University: 1) Finals Survival Guide and 2) Little Known Landmarks.
The games contain 13 different "challenges" for students to complete on campus. Their work is impressive and can be found by download the SCVNGR app on your iPhone, Android, iTouch, or iPad. Good job students!
Today I presented at West Chester University's Research Day, a display of university research with over 70 poster presentations. The poster shared information on the SciEthics Interactive grant and data collection techniques. My teammates and I ran back and forth between classes to attend and "man" our station. What a day!
I will be giving an online presentation for the Sloan Consortium about SciEthics Interactive, April 20th from 11-12:30 EST. The presentation will describe the research behind this virtual experience, as well as a live tour. Don't forget to register and join me!
A National Science Foundation funded project designed to create virtual simulations with a science and ethics focus. Undergraduate and graduate students will be able to experience real-world situations in the safety of a virtual environment.
SciEthics Interactive is an experiential activity for science students created for the virtual world. Graduate and undergraduate science students are able to take the role of a scientist: collecting data, analyzing that data, and practicing ethical decision-making. This National Science Foundation funded project is near completion of the first simulation, with a focus on genetically modified fish.
This webinar will explore the research behind the virtual simulation, the development process, and the final product. Participants with virtual viewers (such as Hippo and Imprudence) will be able to enter the world to join in on a virtual tour.
