Course: SED 616. Computer Supported Collaborative Science (3)
Prerequisite: Enrollment is restricted to students in the Master of Arts in Science Education degree program or with department permission. This is a required course for the Master of Arts degree in Science Education. SED 616 is designed to provide science educators opportunities to develop interactive websites and dynamic online activities to engage their students in scientific practices and habits of mind, such as asking questions and defining problems, developing and using models, planning and carrying out investigations, analyzing and interpreting data, using mathematics and computational thinking, constructing explanations and designing solutions, engaging in argument from evidence, and obtaining, evaluating and communicating information. This course fosters the development of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) so that science educators are prepared to use the web-based resources they develop to engage students and enhance science learning.
