High school students from New York and Massachusetts during summer workshop at Boston University  learning Network Science concepts in NetSciHigh project

The Third Network Science In Education Satellite Symposium: NetSciEd3

NetSciEd provides an opportunity for the growing community of network scientists interested in education to come together and talk about their projects and programs, new tools and curriculum models.

Please join us on Monday June 2, 2014 from 8:00AM-1:00PM to discuss the latest developments and future directions for this vital community of NetSci researchers interested in helping grow the next generation.

NetSciEd3 will have a focus on network science teaching and learning at all levels of formal and informal education, as well as how network science helps inform and understand learning processes and organizations.

The morning will include presentations, posters, and a hands-on working roundtable in which we will collaboratively attempt to map NetSci concepts to formal curriculum frameworks. If you are interested in helping to promote Network Science as a field of science, you should be at this event!

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Teaching Teachers Network Science Concepts
  • Network Science in K-16 Practice and Policy
  • Network Science in Informal Education
  • Tools for Teaching Network Science
  • New Directions in Learning Science
  • Developing Metrics for Effective Educational Collaboration Networks

Your Participation Needed

In addition to our speakers, we encourage posters of work related to Network Science In Education.

The morning will include group discussions, as well as an important working session on applying network science concepts to the Common Core framework. Network Science Needs YOU!
