Knowledge, Learning, Community

One thing of note here is the disclaimer, which is the first of its kind I've seen. Derek Turner in this post describes how the pandemic has shifted his perspective on his research data. For example, "As interesting as comparing changes in affective learning between traditional field trips and online field trips is, it didn’t seem to be as important in a world where in-person field trips weren’t even possible." Even more, "should be less about how online field trips affected student learning compared to in-person trips and more about why some students preferred online field trips in the first place." This is a good point.
