Equipped with iPod touches, and an account for social networking sites, NYIT professors met with 45 New York City K-12 teachers on a trip around New York State July 29.  Amongst the great outdoors in the state, they traveled across ponds, swamps, and the Long Island Sound.  The purpose of this according to a media release, is to train the city school teachers on how to utilize new technologies and impact the students.

 

The efforts were funded by a $1 million dollar, five year National Science Foundation grant.  “We want to bridge the gap between formal and informal learning using technology to enhance students’ scientific inquiry skills and master new skills,” said Dr. Schiang-Kwei Wang, principal investigator of the project.  Dr. Wang is an associate professor of instructional technology at NYIT, according to its website.

 

Four training sessions were formed and included lessons on human impact on water quality, photosynthesis, DNA, and the human body. The NYIT professors will teach more groups over the next five years to impact science classrooms using technology, and new information.
