Episode 14: February 27, 2014
In this episode, I interview Dr. Julie Reinhart an associate professor of educational technology and the Director of the STEM Education Center in the School of Education at St. Xavier University (http://sxu.edu/academics/colleges_schools/soe/). Dr. Reinhart discusses STEM Education and the challenges associate with STEM education in K-12. She describes the professional development that the STEM Education Center at St. Xavier University provides teachers in the Chicago area. The interview ends with a discussion a research study Dr. Reinhart conducted (with two colleagues) on the 2nd level digital divide. Dr. Reinhart provides advice how we can approach dealing with this issue.
