Handbook of Research on Driving STEM Learning with Educational Technologies
Ramírez-Montoya, María-Soledad, Ed.
Educational strategies have evolved over the years, due to research breakthroughs and the application of technology. By using the latest learning innovations, curriculum and instructional design can be enhanced and strengthened. The "Handbook of Research on Driving STEM Learning with Educational Technologies" is an authoritative reference source for the latest scholarly research on the implementation and use of different techniques of instruction in modern classroom settings. Featuring exhaustive coverage on a variety of topics including data literacy, student motivation, and computer-aided assessment, this resource is an essential reference publication ideally designed for academicians, researchers, and professionals seeking current research on emerging uses of technology for STEM education. Following the Preface by María-Soledad Ramírez-Montoya, this book contains the following chapters: (1) Training Educational Researchers in Science and Mathematics: A Case Study Through a Binational Workshop Mexico-UK (María-Soledad Ramírez-Montoya); (2) Using Modeling and Simulation to Learn Mathematics (Ruth Rodríguez Gallegos); (3) Teachers and Mathematical Modeling: What Are the Challenges?
