Upcoming Digital East St. Louis Exhibit
This Thursday, from 11:10 am - 12:30 pm in Friends Corner of Lovejoy Library, I'll curate a small exhibit on "Digital East St. Louis," a three-year, National Science Foundation-funded project – is designed to implement and study place-based learning with the purpose of increasing interest in STEM among African American students.
I'm a contributor to "Digital East St. Louis," which is led by Sharon Locke, the director of SIUE's STEM Center; Jessica DeSpain, a literature professor and co-director of the Interdisciplinary Research and Informatics Scholarship (IRIS) Center; and Liza Cummings, professor of curriculum and instruction.
Thursday's exhibit will also include questionnaires as some of us continue thinking about ways to develop culturally-distinct technology projects.
