  • Welcome. I am Derrick Willard, Science Department Chair at Providence Day School in Charlotte, North Carolina. And this is Matt Scully, our amazing Technology Director.\n
  • You should know a few things about me. First, I’m a serious scientist. Really.\n
  • These are some of my tools to discover relationships. \n
  • Some relationships are simple. Like the more rain that falls in a region...\n
  • the taller the vegetation it can support. Other relationships are more complicated-counterintuitive (inverse).\n
  • I’m also a gardner, and this is my favorite tool store...\n
  • It has walls and walls of tools...\n
  • and seeds...\n
  • to help me grow food.\n
  • Finally, I’m an educator.\n
  • These are some of my tools...\n
  • To help me build relationships AND help brains grow...\n
  • This is Matt. He helped me shift...\n
  • We are here today to describe how a device helped shift my instruction. Diagram taken from:\n21st Century Skills: Learning for Life in Our Times\nBernie Trilling & Charles Fadel\n2009\nJossey-Bass\nSan Francisco, CA\n
  • So, I would like to describe my journey-with help from Matt, without whom none of this would have been possible.\n
  • What were our initial goals?\n
  • Let’s go back in time and discuss why we had to do some training. iPad comes out April 2010. In our 4th classes by spring 2011-Matt gave me one to experiment with in hopes of using in Costa Rica June 2011. At the time NONE of these kids had one...\n
  • I coined this term in May of 2011. At first I was thinking of the device as a “swiss army knife” but I settled on this by May.\n
  • Tried to go to the tropics with no paper, except a text and field guide. We did. We did most of the work here. This is our project page. Cut to Alice’s bird page...\n
  • Travel journey-rotating scribes.\n
  • First attempt at a “flipped classroom” - preloaded content to watch on the road and discuss later.\n
