    This presentation given at a workshop in the 2014 MNT (Micro Nano Technology) Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, provides an overview of nanoHUB resources that will be useful for MNT Educators.  The Education Page, nanoHUB-U, Group Functionalities, collections, Learning Communities,...

  3. Mathematical Models and Simulations Workshop Presentation

    10 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Krishna Madhavan, Yi Kong

    Developing engineers for a changing world presents a greater need for students to understand simulations. Understanding mathematical models and simulations are skills that all engineers need for industry and research, but many engineering students lack a conceptual understanding of how to...

  4. 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...

  5. Engineering and Science Instructors' Intended Learning Outcomes with Computational Simulations as Learning Tools

    26 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana

    This presentation describes the results of a study aiming to identify how 14 instructors incorporated into their classrooms computational simulations as learning tools. The study was based on the following research question: What were the intended learning outcomes that guided the instructors'...

  6. Opportunities for Integrating nanoHUB Computational Simulations as Learning Tools

    25 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana

    This presentation introduces a research agenda that focuses on identifying how to provide: (i) instructors with educational resources to help them better integrate nanoHUB computational simulation tools into their teaching and (ii) learners with adequate scaffolds (supports) to use computational...

  7. Students Perceptions and Experiences of Using Computational Simulations as Learning Tools

    25 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana

    This presentation summarizes the results of three research studies aiming to investigate students perceptions and experiences of using computational simulations as learning tools. The three guiding research questions were: (i) how do students with different academic level experience nanoHUB...
