NASA Educator Resource Center Network Strategic Review

CCT is conducting a review of NASA's Educator Resource Center Network (ERCN). CCT researchers will conduct site visits to four ERCNs, and interview 11 NASA pre-college officers and a representative sample of ERCN's intended audience to develop a complete picture of the program's current implementation. Using review criteria outlined by NASA, CCT will produce a report that describes the ERCN implementation model, illustrates lessons learned from successful Educator Resource Center implementations, and proposes recommendations for improving or changing the ERCN model. The goal of the review is to create an ERCN model that better disseminates, supports, and help educators integrate NASA education resources into their teaching practice. This project builds on our previous review of the Classroom of the Future (COTF) program, a major program of the agency housed at Wheeling Jesuit University's Center for Educational Technologies.
