Taking Citizen Science to School Center, Haifa, Israel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This squib continues the ongoing conversation put forward by Wise and Schwarz around the direction and future of CSCL. We focus here on the question of whether or not CSCL should seek to make educational change. Here, we take the affirmative position by conceptualizing the network of design-centric research practice partnerships. We illustrate how this could work through an ongoing instantiation called Taking Citizen Science to School, a multi-year research center with joint funding from research and practice-based governmental institutions.
