Research Overview

Dr. Quentin Biddy is an Assistant Research Professor in the Institute of Cognitive Science. He is currently working with the Schoolwide Labs, STEMCC, iSAT, and iHUB projects researching and developing open source resources to support high school and middle school science teachers transitioning to Phenomena-Driven, Three-Dimensional Learning and assessment aligned to the NGSS while integrating Computational thinking using the DaSH, a programmable Data Sensor Hub. Through this work, he is focusing on supporting middle school science teachers intentionally integrating Computational Thinking Practices into students’ learning experiences through co-designed CT integrated NGSS aligned storylines. His research/work experience and interests focus on effective science learning and teaching, Phenomena-Driven learning, NGSS aligned 3D Learning and formative assessment, CT integration, Pedagogical Content Knowledge, teacher professional learning, and the Nature of Science and History of Science in science education.

Role at Schoolwide Labs

Quentin's focus in the SchoolWide Labs, iSAT, and iHUB projects is researching and developing open source resources to support middle school science teachers to support student to engage in rich computational learning experiences in science and STEM that align to the NGSS.

As a Co-PI on the STEMCC project Quentin is researching and developing open source resources to support in school and out of school programs to integrate Computational Thinking with mentoring with local STEM professionals along with explicit connections to local STEM careers and career pathways.
