Pearson Foundation Supports Incoming LSU Biology Students With 21st Century Learning Tools
Date:5/11/2009

ile-phone technologies are changing the ways young people can organize, present, and share information about issues that matter to them. Alliance members believe that using technologies to enhance personal expression creates an expanded kind of literacy, often referred to as 21st Century literacy, which people -- especially young people -- already use in their everyday lives.

Mark Nieker, President of the Pearson Foundation, said, "The Digital Arts Alliance strives to help teachers to teach, and students to learn through innovative learning techniques. By incorporating digital arts into the BIOS program, students are required to demonstrate essential skills and knowledge with built-in opportunities for self-assessment."

About LSU's BIOS Program

The Biology Intensive Orientation for Students (BIOS) Program was designed to positively impact the success of incoming freshman biology majors by giving them tools and strategies to succeed at Louisiana State University. The program combines content lectures and examinations for BIOL 1201 - Introductory Biology for Science Majors, as well as learning styles assessments and informational sessions to provide the students with a preview of the requirements of biology, and the pace of college. BIOS participants have, on average, a higher course grade in BIOL 1201 than their academic peers. These students also succeed (grade of A, B or C) in their biological science courses and remain on track through the first semester of their sophomore year at a significantly higher rate than other BIOL 1201 students.
