JASON Interactive Curriculum on Internet2 BoF
Time 09/27/04 05:00PM-06:00PM
JASON Expedition is a supplemental, inquiry-based, science learning experience designed to engage teachers and students in grades 4-9 in real scientific research. This year's JASON Expedition: Disappearing Wetlands travels to the Louisiana Bayou region to explore the science and issues affecting one of the world's most valuable vanishing resources. Through JASON's Minnesota regional distributor, the Bell Museum of Natural History, and their education technology partner, TIES, a series of after-school workshop sessions will be broadcast via Internet2 to introduce teachers to this year's program and prepare them to implement the curriculum in their classroom. In addition to the teacher training, TIES and JASON will be offering daytime interactive Q and A sessions with students and JASON scientists via Internet2 videoconferencing. Join a JASON Foundation representative and Kathy Kraemer from TIES to learn more about how schools in your area can take advantage of this year's JASON Expedition via Internet2.
