"Using mobile technology to share our learning about STEM with our community-our world"

We will outline STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) outcomes and teacher candidate growth through use of mobile technology. We will present this in a video poster showing how we used iPads to program and control Lego Robots (WeDo 2.0), hands on science inquiries, and “in the ield” experiences in the science rich environment of Turtle Bay Exploration Park. Set up for this presentation will involve the use of
three iPADs featuring the following work:

  1. Lego robotics. iPads were used to design and program movement through coding in order to problem solve use of robots. Robots had task challenges such as moving objects speci ic distances following coded instructions.

  2. Google + Community (images captured by teacher candidates and support faculty) We demonstrate how using mobile technology and Google + Community allowed us to bring families and the larger education community into our learning environment.

  3. Video taped inquiry based experiments showing STEM in action (Sailboats, water rockets). Use of video was embraced to guide professional development allowing candidates to see how to improve the learning experience of students by coming back to the lab to re-engineer their projects. Students participating in the summer camp also utilized mobile technology to record indings and make decisions for re-design.
