Visitors bring different experiences and knowledge to the activity table, which sometimes helps and sometimes adds confusion to their learning. In this online workshop, learn how to identify common patterns of thinking (including misconceptions, preconceived notions and vernacular issues) as learners build their ideas around Earth and space science concepts and strategies to best address them. We will also discuss how to use the NISE Net’s NASA Wavelength lists to explore more resources to support building on facets of understanding while interacting with visitors.
