    While there have been numerous initiatives to promote and recruit students into postsecondary studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) around the world, traditional programs of studies for both K ...
  • Multidisciplinary Perspectives on a Video Case of Children Designing and Coding for Robotics 

    Francis, Krista; Davis, Brent; Hawes, Zachary; Moss, Joan; Okamoto, Yukari; Sinclair, Nathalie; Bruce, Catherine D.; Drefs, Michelle A.; Hallowell, David A.; McGarvey, Lynn M.; Mulligan, Joanne T.; Whiteley, Walter J.; Woolcott, Geoff W. (Taylor & Francis, Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary, https://authorservices.taylorandfrancis.com/sharing-your-work/, Publisher's version, 2017-05-05)
    Spatial reasoning plays a vital role in choice of and success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers, yet the topic is scarce in grade school curricula. We conjecture that this absence may be ...
  • Coding Robots as a Source of Instantiations for Arithmetic 

    Francis, Krista; Davis, Brent (Springer Nature, Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary, https://www.springernature.com/gp/open-research/policies/journal-policies, Publisher's version, 2018-09-17)
    With louder and more widespread calls to include computer programming as a core element of school curriculum, global efforts to define innovative and distinct coding curricula are underway. We take a different tack in this ...
  • Understanding gaps in research networks: using “spatial reasoning” as a window into the importance of networked educational research 

    Bruce, Catherine D.; Davis, Brent; Sinclair, Nathalie; Francis, Krista; Hawes, Zachary; McGarvey, Lynn; Moss, Joan; Okamoto, Yukari; Hallowell, David A.; Drefs, Michelle A.; Mulligan, Joanne T.; Whiteley, Walter J.; Woolcott, Geoff W.
