INITIATE

NSF Awards: 1741784

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

Can self-driving vehicles be hacked? Can our highways become even more dangerous? This project (INITIATE) combines multiple theories (the fusion of activity theory, social constructivist learning theory, and project-based learning) to form its conceptual framework/approach to the study. The project, guided by its conceptual framework, will use the Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM) to guide professional development that uses project-based learning to assist 9-12 grade mathematics and career technical education (CTE) teachers integrate computational thinking into their teaching. Activities will use autonomous vehicles as a mechanism to engage teachers to better understand why and how to embed computational thinking in their curriculum as well as engage their students in meaningful real-world applications of the concepts through problem-based learning. The project is funded by the STEM+C program, which seeks to address emerging challenges in computational STEM areas through the applied integration of computational thinking and computing activities within disciplinary STEM teaching and learning in early childhood education through high school (preK-12).
