Electronic Teacher’s Guide, or eTG, is a research and development project of EDC. The aim of eTG is to enhance the ability of teachers to provide science education.
The project will:
- Develop a prototype eTG
- Conduct classroom-based studies to determine the impact of eTG on teachers’ learning and practice, particularly in relation to the fidelity with which teachers modify and adapt instructional materials at the secondary level
eTG will be based on the teacher’s guide (print version) for the genetics unit from Foundation Science: Biology, an NSF-funded high school science curriculum developed by EDC. eTG will include:
- Media features to support the needs of a range of teachers
- Customized content
- Interfaces and layers for teacher resources and pedagogical supports
