The EarExplorer Project One of my goals is to explore the affordances of new technologies for learning STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). In collaboration with others, we are building a series of tangible interfaces for teaching science concepts. In this project, we started with the constraint of teaching a highly spatial domain where one could […]
