Research Center for Educational Technology (RCET)
RCET is excited to announce our recent award from the National Science Foundation to develop a mobile app for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). The app will allow CVNP visitors to learn more about the park’s history and ecology and become “citizen scientists" by sharing their findings with others. Led by RCET's Rick Ferdig, Ph.D. (Summit Professor of Learning Technologies and Professor of Instructional Technology at Kent State), the project team includes Annette Kratcoski, Ph.D., RCET director, Cheng-Chang Lu, Ph.D., professor of computer science, and Ruoming Jin, Ph.D., associate professor of computer science, both from Kent State’s College of Arts and Sciences. Also part of the team is biologist Patrick D. Lorch, formerly at Kent State, and now manager of field research for Cleveland Metroparks. Jennie Vasarhelyi, Chief of Interpretation, Education and Visitor Services at Cuyahoga Valley National Park, will be the lead representative for the park. More…
RCET Kicks-off the 2014-15 School Year in the AT&T Classroom
The 2014-15 school year kicks-off in the AT&T Classroom with two classes from Kent City Schools.
From Walls Elementary, third grade teacher Kristin Blake and her students will be in the AT&T Classroom each morning using a variety of digital tools to focus on science and language arts.
RCET is also pleased to welcome Kent Roosevelt High School teachers Rhonda Butler & Jacyln Consilio and their high school seniors from the Future Teachers Program. The Future Teachers Program is a Career & Technical Education program offered through the Six District Compact and provides an opportunity for high school students to explore the teaching profession and earn university credit. Across the six weeks, the seniors will develop knowledge and skills for technology integration and also begin building their digital portfolios.
