New Mexico Adventures in Modeling: Integrating IT into the Curriculum Through Computer Modeling Approaches
Drawing on curriculum and software developed at MIT, this comprehensive project will develop key skills in an emerging area within IT with broad applications, while enhancing interest in IT and modeling the integration of IT into the curriculum. This three-year program trains 75 (25 per year) New Mexico science, mathematics, and technology teachers in grades 6-12 to integrate IT concepts and computer modeling;especially of complex adaptive systems - into their curricula, using StarLogo simulation software, participatory simulations that use handheld computers, and related computer technologies.
