PICS is a conceptual framework
that guides the implementation of
informal STEM learning for
Upham Woods. By strategically
shifting the communities’ focus
between the nodes, the approach
aims to develop transferable
science observation skills in
learner communities that
enhances data literacy and
science communication in ISL
settings.
Hougham, 2011
Place, Issue, Community & Science (PICS)
“Shifting the focus of science education to help guide students to use their
knowledge, skills and dispositions also helps them become actively engaged
citizens working to dismantle dominant discourses to address issues they
continue to be passionate about”
- Zocher & Hougham, 2018 (in review)

(DOTS)
Statewide Impact
Researching Educational Pedagogies
“Technology has much to offer environmental educators, and it is
also an ever changing horizon of what will work in outdoor
contexts, be relevant, and enhance learning experiences. Time
invested in reviewing and selecting technology and apps before
making purchases is time well spent. It is best to select
technologies with the purpose of enhancing outdoor education
programming.” Hougham & Kerlin, 2016
Developing a sense of place with science and
storytelling
“In moving environmental education
into the digital age, educators
should look to empower youth with
the tools and responsibility to
examine their surroundings and in
encouraging youth to take and use
technology outside, educators can
capitalize on students collecting
their own data sets to develop
deeper more meaningful inquiry
questions.” Hougham et al., 2017b
Student Led Water Quality Monitoring
Digital Literacy: Modern Tools for Observation and Inquiry
“DOTS addresses longstanding tensions between modern technology and classical
outdoor education by carefully selecting appropriate digital technology for educational
purposes and by situating these tools in classical experiential pedagogy...to maintain the
inquiry-driven nature of experiential education while incorporating 21st-century learning
goals, like digital literacy.” Hougham et al., 2018a
Enhancing Outdoor Observation with Technology
“EARPOD used an integrated technology
program, Digital Observation Technology
Skills (DOTS), to engage underserved
students in experiential education meant
to increase environmental literacy and
provide evaluative data for pedagogical
development in environmental
education… Preliminary results showed
that students reported an increase in
three main characteristics with regard to
technology: confidence in using
technologies outdoors, knowledge of
available technologies, and knowledge of
using different technologies.”
Hougham et al., 2018b
Pedagogy in Practice
“...guide students to use their knowledge…”
Zocher & Hougham, in review
“...address issues they continue to be passionate
about...” Zocher & Hougham, in review
A Maryland Avenue
Montessori Student took
interest in the difference in
temperature between the
black top and grass.
La Escuela Fratney’s Thermal Investigators
“There once was a little girl
who wanted to be a scientist.
So she met a real one. She
looked at the gadgets and
wondered what they are for.
So she started to turn on the
gadgets and started using
them. She took out the
thermal imager and started
noticing everything was
different temperatures when
she didn’t realize it. So the
scientist showed her all the
gadgets and when she grew
up she became a
professional scientist. And
you can be one too!!!”
-La Escuela Fratney students

Inside Coffee Cup Experiment
Weather Report:
Air Temp: 44.9 °F
Wind Speed: 2 mph
Brightness: 1493 lx
Thermal Investigation: We also touched
objects to see how warm they would get.
Group Summary: The girls from Fratney observed 4 cups that had coffee, water,
none and a little coffee. And they were covered with index cads on top. So we
used the tools and touch smell. The full coffee cup had steam it was heavy, felt
warm to the touch and the thermal imager tool. It showed that it had a temperature
of 96.7°F. Those are the ways we could tell it from the other cups.

Hougham, 2011 Place, Issue, Community & Science (PICS)
  • 9. “Shifting the focus of science education to help guide students to use their knowledge, skills and dispositions also helps them become actively engaged citizens working to dismantle dominant discourses to address issues they continue to be passionate about” - Zocher & Hougham, 2018 (in review) Ecopedagogy - critical pedagogy
  • 11. Researching Educational Pedagogies “Technology has much to offer environmental educators, and it is also an ever changing horizon of what will work in outdoor contexts, be relevant, and enhance learning experiences. Time invested in reviewing and selecting technology and apps before making purchases is time well spent. It is best to select technologies with the purpose of enhancing outdoor education programming.” Hougham & Kerlin, 2016
  • 12.
  • 13. Developing a sense of place with science and storytelling “In moving environmental education into the digital age, educators should look to empower youth with the tools and responsibility to examine their surroundings and in encouraging youth to take and use technology outside, educators can capitalize on students collecting their own data sets to develop deeper more meaningful inquiry questions.” Hougham et al., 2017b Student Led Water Quality Monitoring
  • 14.
  • 15. Digital Literacy: Modern Tools for Observation and Inquiry “DOTS addresses longstanding tensions between modern technology and classical outdoor education by carefully selecting appropriate digital technology for educational purposes and by situating these tools in classical experiential pedagogy...to maintain the inquiry-driven nature of experiential education while incorporating 21st-century learning goals, like digital literacy.” Hougham et al., 2018a
  • 16.
  • 17. Enhancing Outdoor Observation with Technology “EARPOD used an integrated technology program, Digital Observation Technology Skills (DOTS), to engage underserved students in experiential education meant to increase environmental literacy and provide evaluative data for pedagogical development in environmental education… Preliminary results showed that students reported an increase in three main characteristics with regard to technology: confidence in using technologies outdoors, knowledge of available technologies, and knowledge of using different technologies.” Hougham et al., 2018b
  • 18.
  • 19. Pedagogy in Practice “...guide students to use their knowledge…” Zocher & Hougham, in review “...address issues they continue to be passionate about...” Zocher & Hougham, in review

  • 21. La Escuela Fratney’s Thermal Investigators
  • 22. “There once was a little girl who wanted to be a scientist. So she met a real one. She looked at the gadgets and wondered what they are for. So she started to turn on the gadgets and started using them. She took out the thermal imager and started noticing everything was different temperatures when she didn’t realize it. So the scientist showed her all the gadgets and when she grew up she became a professional scientist. And you can be one too!!!” -La Escuela Fratney students

Editor's Notes

  1. Both the highlighted portions reflect our purpose followed by a sense of devotion to community in my opinion. Our combined intentions on research (Upham) and education as liberation (EV) reflect into our respective communities (agriculture and rural cultures vs. transformation of their world). This reflection is repeated throughout our circles and overlap in Milwaukee. Our community goals of conservation, agriculture and rural culture intercede with student parrticipation and self-world transformation.
  2. We as institutions have this to offer and we found this lacking and this is our need as well as local needs. Answer: related to other work that your institution does
  3. Having identified these needs we have to inform our actions deliberately. It seems the reasonable solution would be doing some kind of community science. The first thing we come up against is how do we actually define community science to make it accessible and relevant to the groups we want to work with. So we asked these questions
  4. A group of people interested in place based observation, studies and scientific processes with the goal of understanding and addressing local issues. This emphasizes the relationships between community members collecting and organizing scientific information. They of course do these things because the information is relevant to their personal experience either as an issue or interest. An open ended approach like this, unlike citizen science, allows grassroot problem and interest identification and potential solutions designed by the community. This gives the community agency to solve it since they have identified channels to pursue solutions. The underlying and unifying layer to all participants and peoples here is passion. Some of those relevant partner groups should include: An open ended approach enables groups to fluidly connect and bond with each other in these spaces with the underlying communal value being passion. Passion and information related to anything.
  5. Community science conceptual transition to PICS which is a thought on how to conduct community science effectively
  6. It’s an iceberg: Hougham, R.J. (2011). Growing Inquiry and Engagement- International Globalization, Diversity, and Education Conference. Spokane, WA.
  7. Tech as science and ways of knowing
  8. To connect place and community through scientific storytelling, data collection connects to the community/learner to the issue
  9. PICS
  10. PICS/DOTS works
  11. Case study is DOTS as ecopedagogy DOTS in action
  12. Answer how these kids were chosen, what’re they actually doing? What’s the time frame they operate within? Where Clearing paper DOTS training and tech integration process: water stories summit
  13. Meet goal 1: The most common visitors to these facilities were white/non-Hispanic elementary or middle school aged children and adults
  14. Meets goal 2
  15. Answer how these kids were chosen, what’re they actually doing? What’s the time frame they operate within? Where Clearing paper DOTS training and tech integration process: water stories summit Meet’s goal 1 because accesses and gives confidence to new people and demographics (Hougham et al, 2018) JEE
  16. Adults hanging out. Adults doing fun science together. This is an inherently community invested project but what’s the communication back. How do you get a bus pass?
  17. SSB is a case study of ecopedagogy. It is community science playing out and what it looks like
  18. 2018 EPA grant and SSB Follows a similar process but even more minutely focused on Milwaukee. The idea is to increase impact in a particular area and continue to bolster urban environmental education and awareness of local issues. It doesn’t end with just increasing awareness it, like the previous project, targets increasing learner outcomes and community connections to solve future problems and we are doing Science Strikes Back again!
  19. This network, however, has been building and evolving. These organizations show a mix of informal and formal educational institutions. And the reason is because informal institutions can provide content expertise, a change of pace, something exciting and accessible in a new way while the formal educational setting has consistency and students. Combining these two things enhances the learner’s experience in compounding their own knowledge through innate comparison (EPA grant 2018 “Why”) We saw this naturally occur with the students participating in Science Strikes Back.
