LT's Angel Pazurek received a special invitation from the Lindahl Academic Center for Student Athletes and the University of Minnesota Athletic Department to the Gopher football game on September 11, 2021 against Miami (Ohio) University to honor her work with student athletes.
The Learning Technologies (LT) minor is now in its third year at the University of Minnesota drawing students from across different disciplines who want to become more digitally savvy leaders within their fields. Society and workplaces are becoming more technological and need innovators who can use technology to create and solve problems- the shift to remote learning in 2020 and 2021 intensified this need.
The Learning + Technologies Collaborative (formally LT Media Lab) is celebrating multi-year partnership anniversaries with two Minnesota school districts. Research-Practice Partnerships (RPPs) are long-term collaborations between school districts, universities, and organizations that center themselves around mutual problems of practice and a shared research agenda.
Learning Technologies faculty Dr.Bodong Chen, Dr.Cassie Scharber, and Educational Psychology colleague Dr.David DeLiema were awarded an NSF grant to develop a justice-oriented, tech-enhanced learning program that integrates critical data literacies in science and social studies. “DataX: Exploring Justice-Oriented Data Science with Secondary School Students” is a project that aims to help St. Paul Public School students learn how to use data in meaningful and authentic ways.
