"The Concord Consortium is a nonprofit educational research and development organization based in Concord, Massachusetts. We create interactive materials that exploit the power of information technologies. Our primary goal in all our work is digital equity — improving learning opportunities for all students." (Concord Consortium website)

I joined Concord Consortium as an intern in the Spring of 2005. I started working in the TELS project (Technology Enhanced Learning in Science), supporting the implementation of WISE projects in Cambridge Ringe and Latin High School, in Cambridge, MA. I later worked in the MAC project (Modeling Across the Curriculum), supporting research on the alignment of the MAC curriculum and the National Science Education Standards.

Responsabilities:

  • Supported teachers on-site when using WISE projects.
  • Supported research on the MAC project.

Major Achievements:

  • Coded and aligned MAC curricula with NSES.
