Learning technologies' faculty receive award for best research paper

Learning technologies' faculty--Aaron Doering, Charles Miller, and Cassie Scharber--received an award for the best research paper at the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education conference in Nashville, TN. The paper, "Designing with and for Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge: The Evolution of GeoThentic," describes how a technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge (TPACK) framework informed the authors' design for GeoThentic, an online teaching and learning environment that focuses on engaging teachers and learners in solving real-world geography problems through use of geospatial technologies. The paper also discusses a set of assessment models within GeoThentic that can be used to assess teachers' TPACK.
