This is a reposting of a blog originally published on Education Development Center, Inc.'s Learning and Teaching website.
The STELAR center organized a panel at the Summit to highlight findings from the ITEST program related to motivating students to pursue and persist in STEM education and career pathways.
STELAR recently had the opportunity to interview Chadia Affane Aji and Mohammad Javed Khan at Tuskegee University from the ITEST Project Innovative Flight Simulation Experiences for Students and Teachers to learn more about the program.
What role does community, family, and culture play in the motivation to learn? What motivates young people to participate in STEM learning experiences? What do these experiences teach them about STEM educational and career paths?
When I mention my work with the Center for Innovative Research in Cyberlearning (CIRCL), people often ask, “So, what exactly is cyberlearning?” It’s a good question with a broad answer.
