Project Learning with Automated, Networked Supports (PLANS)

NSF Awards: 1451604

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

Project Learning with Automated Network Support is an NSF-funded cyberlearning initiative. Called PLANS for short, this work is powered by the open-source, Web-Based Inquiry Science Environment (wise.berkeley.edu). The PLANS units showcased in this video were developed by an interdisciplinary team of learning scientists, computer scientists, disciplinary experts, teachers and engineers. Units combine hands-on design and a plethora of analytic technologies to improve student learning. The video features student designs of solar-powered ovens, and self-propelled vehicles along with the computer models students use to investigate the science principles behind their designs. Automated scoring of knowledge integration essays and drawings is used to guide student exploration.Teachers use these same scores to monitor student progress, lead discussions, plan Openers and assign grades. Results show that diverse learners including students in urban schools and language learners gain integrated understanding of complex concepts and practices as well as developing their identity as scientists. PLANS is transforming science and engineering education for current and future learners.

Units are free and open-source. Check out the units at wise.berkeley.edu.
