Student and Teacher Technology Transformation Teams (ST4) is an NSF funded project for increasing the ability of secondary STEM teachers and students to collaboratively learn and apply STEM skills using information and communications technology (ICT). This project is providing teachers and students the opportunity to work in teams and use web-accessible ICT tools to produce design-based learning labs (DBLLs) that consist of web-based multi-media enhanced presentations of technical solutions to current, real-world problems. Producing and evaluating DBLLs helps students understand the processes and interactions encountered in professional work and stimulate development of in-depth technical knowledge and skills. The proposed training will include teachers and students in the statewide programs of biotechnology, information technology, engineering and agriscience. The performing unit is the National Center for Teacher Education (NCTE), a permanent part of the Academic and Student Affairs Division of the Maricopa County Community Colleges District in Arizona.
