Poster - Researching the Value of Educator Actions on Learning (REVEAL)

August 19, 2014 | Exhibitions
This is a poster presented at 2014 AISL PI Meeting on the project, Researching the Value of Educator Actions on Learning (REVEAL), DRL# 1321666. REVEAL Goals Develop a theoretical understanding of staff-mediated mathematical discourse at exhibits Better understand how museum educators and exhibits can foster families’ engagement in mathematical discourse related to algebraic thinking. REVEAL uses a two-phase research design to study and measure the impact of staff facilitation on museum mathematical discourse at exhibits and identify factors that influence the outcomes of these interactions. The project has an emphasis on culturally-responsive research and education approaches, including relevant training and deliverables. Challenges The two-phase nature of the REVEAL project provides great opportunities to utilize the DBR phase as a venue to test approaches and prepare for the Experimental phase. However, this also presents a challenge for the team as they work to realize the potential of the DBR as a rich and fertile qualitative study in and of itself.
