Title:
Use of Aerospace Activities in the classroom by teachers who have access to NASA Spacelink
Authors:
Hardwick, Ellen
Abstract:
Scope and method of study. The purpose of this descriptive study was to provide information that would assist in evaluating the effective use of Spacelink by teachers. Using an on-line questionnaire, ninety-six Spacelink Educator Account holders were surveyed as to their access to technology, support, and use of Aerospace in their curricula. Frequencies and percentages were used in the analysis of data. Findings and conclusions. The results of the study indicate that the majority of the teachers access Spacelink by the NASA toll-free number, they use the service primarily for E-mail and Internet access, and there is some increase in the use of Aerospace in the curricula of teachers who have Spacelink access. It was concluded that Spacelink is serving a purpose, but research on its effectiveness needs to continue.
