The Research + Practice Collaboratory

NSF Awards: 1238253

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

The Interactive STEM team at Education Development Center, Inc. is a major partner in the Research + Practice Collaboratory, a five-year initiative (NSF grant DRL-1238253) to strengthen and reframe the relationship between research and teacher practice in STEM education in K–12 and informal settings. EDC’s team is developing and studying a model of research-practice collaboration in partnership with the Auburn, Maine, School Department and faculty at Maine universities to improve student learning of mathematics in the early grades using interactive mobile technologies such as iPads. Teams of teachers, administrators, researchers, coaches, and EDC facilitators are engaging in collaborative inquiry through an iterative process of designing, testing, and analyzing classroom learning and teaching practices in mathematics with iPad tools to generate new knowledge and practice in direct response to a district need. Through journal publications, briefs, tools, and video, the initiative is contributing to the research base about what works in early STEM learning with practices, interventions, and teaching strategies; supporting elementary school teachers with STEM pedagogy and content knowledge; and supporting children from low-income families who may have less access to STEM experiences.
