The mission of the Center for Hightly Interactive Computing in Education at the University of Michigan (hi-ce) is to help middle and high school students achieve deeper levels of understanding about science and the inquiry process. Our organization works with students, teachers, administrators, families, and community-based organizations to make science education more meaningful to students by using the pedagogy of Project-Based Science and the tools for learner-centered design technology. Hi-ce works to infuse science education with technology so it becomes a seamless, ubiquitous part of science learning in the classroom.
Strategies to achieve this mission include curriculum development, professional development, and the creation of a powerful set of new technology tools.
Latest efforts of the group have concentrated on obtaining solid evidence on how to get technology-based programs to work in urban schools.
