EcoMOBILE

NSF Awards: 1118530

2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

EcoMOBILE provides immersive learning about ecosystems in virtual and physical environments. EcoMOBILE is a middle school science curriculum in which students both explore a virtual representation of a pond ecosystem (EcoMUVE), and also have the opportunity to extend their learning during a field trip to a real pond environment. Their outdoor experience is enhanced by using two forms of mobile technology for science education – mobile broadband devices and environmental probeware. The EcoMOBILE research is exploring how ecosystems instruction can be more engaging and effective by combining immersive virtual environments and real ecosystems infused with virtual resources.
