Carla Companion receives Outstanding Poster award
Carla Companion, COSEE-OS Research Associate, received an Outstanding Poster award for her presentation at an education technology conference in San Diego, CA on March 31st. The Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE) conference was sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE).

Educators and software professionals presented talks, workshops and posters designed to showcase the many ways that technology can enhance education. Companion presented a poster reflecting the center’s use of COSEE-OS software in its four pilot Scientist-Educator Collaborative Workshops held over the last two years. Results of the workshop evaluations demonstrated that concept mapping with online tools linked to educational resources can be an effective way of allowing scientists and teachers to communicate as peers.
