Framework for Evaluating Simulations: Analysis of Student Developed Interactive Computer Tool
25 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Yi Kong, Krishna Madhavan
This is the presentation for a paper presented at the 2015 annual American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) conference. The paper discusses a developed framework for evaluating and scaffolding student-developed simulations in an open-ended learning environment. The full paper...
Framework for Evaluating Simulations: Analysis of Student Developed Interactive Computer Tools
21 Jul 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Krishna Madhavan
Computer simulations are discussed in the learning environment from two major perspectives: 1) teaching students how to build simulations and 2) developing simulations to teach students targeted concepts. This study is approaching learning with simulations from a different perspective. We are...
First-Year Engineering Students' Communication of Nanotechnology Size & Scale in a Design Challenge
22 Apr 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Yi Kong, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Krishna Madhavan
While nanotechnology is a highly engaging topic for students, it entails concepts that are difficult to understand and need to be carefully considered when incorporating nanotechnology into classroom instruction. The notion of size and scale (also referred to as a “big idea” in learning nanoscale...
