There are many opportunities for getting your science, history, and technology students out of the classroom and into the field, conducting their own authentic research and making a real difference in society. This session will share ideas for implementing field research projects, such as using GPS and Google Earth to map sites, how to gather and model data using mobile devices, and tips for finding grant money to support these projects. We’ll also discuss the advantages of project-based learning (PBL) and how student-created projects can help you meet your class objectives more effectively and efficiently while providing meaningful and memorable learning experiences.
