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!
