    Education Assessment    


The theme of this year’s education program is “A K-16 Comprehensive Educational Agenda for High Performance Computing.” The program will focus on undergraduate faculty and K-12 teachers creating and using local computational science “infrastructures” at their schools and institutions.

In a practice-oriented workshop format, participants will study how to apply high performance computing tools and resources across the curriculum in their specific teaching situations and/or research interests, as well as how to integrate modeling and visualization techniques into their classroom instruction. Computational scientists will support participants as they identify appropriate tools for the subjects and curricula they teach and the instructional strategies they use. Special emphasis will be given to using high performance computing to promote collaborative learning strategies.

The program will include reviewing existing materials as well as developing new curriculum modules appropriate for classroom instruction. The resulting materials and instructional application will be published on the web for use by other educators. Finally, a follow-up year-long program of workshops, mentoring and resource support will be available to assist teachers as they apply these new ideas in practice.
