iSWOOP will enhance interpreter-visitor interactions in four ways. iSWOOP will provide interpreters with:
• Direct contact with scientists doing research in the park in an interactive format;
• Field-based experiences, increasing their awareness of scientific park-based research;
• Compelling visualizations which can function as a jumping off point for STEM learning;
• Opportunities to reflect on and expand their strategies for eliciting visitors’ questions to promote
The Institute for Learning Innovation is excited to share our vision for studying interest development in national parks and gather insight from the institute participants on the uses of interaction in interpretation.
