February 21, 2022
David Hicks (SOE), and Todd Ogle (University Libraries), with colleagues Adam Friedman (Education, Wake Forest) and Colleen Fitzpartrick (Education, University of Toledo), received the Outstanding Presentation Award at the SITE Interactive Online Conference for their presentation, “Preparing social studies and ELA teachers to use XR technologies intentionally to support learning”. The 2021 Conference of the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE), held October 27th-28th, presents research related to best practices regarding the use of information technology in teacher education, and improving instruction and mentoring using information technology. The Outstanding Presentation Award is given to work that “demonstrates recognition from fellow experts in the field of technology and teacher education”.
Their presentation highlighted protocols and projects to help define key attributes associated with XR technologies and introduced a question frame to guide a generative discussion to build a common understanding of XR and a research to practice framework for introducing teachers to the ways XR technologies may be used to support intentional inquiry-based learning. Through this presentation researches aimed to establish, 1) a common understanding/definition of XR, and 2) a research to practice framework for introducing preservice and inservice teachers to the ways XR technologies can be used to support intentional inquiry- based learning.
