Habitat Tracker at ASIS&T 2012

Nicole Alemanne presented a Habitat Tracker poster at the ASIS&T 75th Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, October 26-30, 2012.

The Habitat Tracker poster presented preliminary results of research conducted during the project’s second year. The research shows that the Habitat Tracker technologies have the potential to increase student engagement with scientific inquiry during field trips to a wildlife center by helping them become actively involved in their own science education. The poster was authored by Nicole D. Alemanne, Paul F. Marty, Ian Douglas, Sherry A. Southerland, Victor Sampson, Michelle M. Kazmer, Amanda Clark, and Anne Mendenhall.

The American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) supports information specialists from such fields as computer science, linguistics, management, librarianship, engineering, law, medicine, chemistry, and education, by bridging diverse streams of knowledge and focusing what might be disparate approaches into novel solutions to common problems. The theme of this year’s conference was Information, Interaction, Innovation: Celebrating the Past, Constructing the Present and Creating the Future.
