New Articles in the InformalScience.org Knowledge Base
The Center for Advancement of Informal Science Education (CAISE) convened a one-day “Edit-a-Thon” on May 25, 2016 as a follow up to the Research Meeting on Making and Learning meeting held at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh on May 23 & 24. Building on the momentum and generative discussions at the maker research meeting, participants gathered to create new content for the Knowledge Base pages of the InformalScience.org website and reflect together on how this resource, which provides streamlined access to findings and data on effective approaches and strategies, can become most useful for the informal STEM learning community while encouraging new community contributions and edits.
New articles generated at the Pittsburgh Edit-a-Thon include:
- Assessment Practices in Informal Science
- Collaborative Approaches for Learning Ecosystems
- Considerations of Measuring Engagement in Informal Contexts
- Design-based Research and Design-Based Implementation Research
- Designing For and Supporting Family Interaction in Museums
- Effective Facilitation in an Educational Makerspace Setting
- Making for Mathematical Experience
- “Making” the Shift: Changing the Conversation around “Equity in Making”
- Older Adults and Informal Learning
- Outcomes of Digital Making for Youth
- Public Libraries Provide Opportunities for STEM Learning
