Cohort 1 Module 2 Professional Development

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.

The team met with the teacher leaders on Dec. 11 2010.

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.
