Drs. Hui-Yin Hsu and Shiang-Kwei Wang, associate professors in School of Education, presented two papers and one poster with four grant participant teachers at the 2012 National Science Teachers Association STEM Forum & Expo in Atlantic City from May 17 to 19. The paper session are titled "Cultivating New Literacies Through ICTs: Using Photosynthesis as an Example" and "Use a Social Networking Tool to Facilitate Scientific Skills and New Literacies". The later session was selected by NSTA to present as a poster. Click link for details and presentation slides.
Drs. Hui-Yin Hsu and Shiang-Kwei Wang, School of Education associate professors, and Dr. Lisa Runco, Department of Life Sciences assistant professor, presented one paper and one poster session at the 2012 American Educational Research Association annual conference in Vancouver, Canada on April 16 and 17.
Thank you for submitting your applications for summer 2012 workshop. The applications are full at this point. We will send out notice to teachers who are on the waiting list if we have any positions open. At the mean time you can still send out applications to be on the waiting list.
The cohort 1 seed teachers participated in the module 2 professional development workshop on three Saturdays: January 28, February 4 and February 11. Module 2 focuses on using image and video tools to facilitate students' scientific inquiry. Every seed teacher is excited about the opportunity to integrate iPad apps, social networking tools, and images/videos into their classrooms. Teachers are trained to facilitate students' use of images and videos as scientific data collection tools, and various iPad apps that can enhance students' learning.
Today the whole group of cohort 1 seed teachers visited multiple sites on the North Shore of Long Island to collect samples for our water quality testing research.The team visited Shu swamp preserve to observe a swamp and brook and check the water and wildlife. The last stop was Ransom Beach in Bayville.
We visited several beaches in Long Island on June 15, 2011 to select the best places to collect water using Probeware.
The information session for cohort 2 seed teachers was held at NYIT Manhattan Campus, 2 pm, June 18. Cohort 2 teachers are based in Manhattan. We had fun!
The seed teachers are invited to join the information session. The information session will cover the purpose of the research project, the study procedure, data collection timeline, and topics of the four professional development modules.
The team met with the teacher leaders on Dec. 11 2010. We briefly discussed the purpose of the project, the teacher leaders' role, potential professional development modules, and most importantly, the effort to bridge the gap between students' informal technology use outside of schools, and teachers' skills to integrate technology in the classrooms. Our goal is to prepare teachers to be able to adopt ICTs to improve students' scientific literacy by designing inquiry based learning activities, and cultivate their new literacies skills. The meeting was a great success. Both sides learn a lot more about each other.
The NYIT site teacher leaders are on board. They will start working with the team since December 2010. We have the honor to invite Elly Haber from Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Academy, Cindy Roter from Queens School of Inquiry, and Jean Rogers from Locust Valley Middle School. They will work with teacher leaders from Utah State to align the activities with the standards, test the learning activities, and provide suggestions to the PD implementation. Thank you all!
