The Digital Convergence Lab is looking for students for two experiential learning projects for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014.
Online Collaborative Argumentation Tool - In the spring of 2014, we are looking for talented students to design an online collaborative tool to support argumentation in science for middle school students of different cultures. Specifically we are looking for students from Computer Science, Visual Communications, Time Arts, Science Education, and Instructional Technology.
Student Services Mobile App - This student team will develop a mobile app to help NIU students find answers about NIU. The development team will take place in the spring of 2014. This project will bring together the areas of retention, technology and smart device application development, and art to create a smart device application that will appeal to current and prospective students and their families to help them seek answers to pertinent questions regarding NIU.
Specifically we are looking for students from Computer Science, Visual Communications, Time Arts, Science Education, and Instructional Technology, but all students are welcome to apply.
