Standard 2: Culture of Learning
h. Promotes collaboration with all stakeholders.
With the aim to collaborate with stakeholders through contributing back to academia on an international scale, I published my action research in the Journal of Modern Engineering Research (IJMER). The study was The Effect of Computer-Aided Design Instruction on the Spatial Ability of High School Students. Spatial visualization is a skill used to solve problems using concepts of space, visualization, and reasoning. This research project examined the use of Google SketchUp Pro in the computer-aided design (CAD) classroom to improve students’ spatial visualization skills. During the quarter students increased their spatial visualization skills as indicated by the results of individual projects and scores on the Purdue Spatial Visualization Assessment: Rotations (PSVT:R).
