Engagement in STEM learning and careers through the use of innovative learning activities

University of Helsinki, Michigan State University

Researchers from the U.S. and Finland are collaborating in this SAVI project to investigate how teachers use information about student engagement obtained through smart phone technology to make formative decisions regarding classroom instruction. Recognizing the importance of engagement for student achievement in science, these researchers are testing models to enhance engagement and its connection to teacher practices.  This project will contribute to our knowledge base for measuring engagement and its implications for teachers' work in their classrooms.
