Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Faculty of Education CREATE series. This hands-on presentation will discuss and showcase opportunities for effective use of technology-enhanced pedagogies in teacher education, as well as K-12 Mathematics and Science classrooms. We will focus on electronic-response systems (or clickers) and discuss how they can be implemented in K-12 classrooms and in teacher education. We will also brainstorm opportunities for bridging the gap between educational research teaching practice through creating research-informed resources for technology-enhanced teaching. We will showcase our new initiative “Mathematics and Science Teaching and Learning through Technologies” project, supported by the Faculty of Education and Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (http://scienceres-edcp-educ.sites.olt.ubc.ca/ ). Marina Milner-Bolotin is Assistant Professor, Science Education, Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy.
About the Speaker
Dr. Marina Milner-Bolotin is a science educator within the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy. She specializes in science (physics) teaching and studies ways of using technology to promote student interest in science. She has taught physics and mathematics to a wide range of students: from elementary gifted students to university undergraduates in science programs and future teachers. She also has led a number of professional development activities for science in-service and pre-service teachers and university faculty: from LoggerPro training workshops, to clicker and tablet training, and to physics content presentations at conferences and PD days. Some of her research interests include: Action Research, Educational Technologies, Pedagogy, and Science Education.
