EDC’s Center for Children and Technology (CCT) is conducting a five-year study, funded by the National Science Foundation, to investigate the impact of an online professional development course on (1) teacher content and pedagogical knowledge and (2) student knowledge.
CCT is working in partnership with PBS TeacherLine New York and the Buffalo PBS affiliate WNED on the study.
The study will involve New York State public high school 9th or 10th grade biology teachers whose students are eligible to take the state’s Living Environment Regents Examination. Participating teachers will take an online professional development course created by PBS TeacherLine New York to support the development and use of inquiry-based approaches to teaching genetics and evolution.
