  3. 3. Long ago, in a Fellowship not too far away... Kenan Fellows Daily Externship Reflection Name: ______________________________________________________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Paul Cancellieri 6/15/2011 My first day at Cisco. Got a tour of the facility as well as a telepresence presentation about the company history and culture. Met (via telepresence) with Cisco contact in San Jose, CA re partner classrooms for collaboration I am amazed at the collaborative culture and the many different tech tools that are used to communicate within the campus and around the world. Hopeful that I can bring some of these skills (and tools) back to my classroom. 6/16/2011 Sat in on 2 education related meetings, witnessing how Cisco supports the education community with expertise, funding, and tools. Also, observed the nature of business meetings for this group. Was encouraged to "put in my 2 cents" when asked about issues related to my experiences. Felt valued as a professional educator! Began to assemble tools for eventual student project, including Ning and networks for finding classrooms. 6/17/2011 Spent the day connecting with resources to find foreign classroom to collaborate with, and learning about best practices for global collaboration from Cisco employees/managers with experience in the education community. Had very productive "debriefing" meeting with my mentor and her assistant. Fleshed out the pieces that need to be completed and the action steps to make that happen. 6/20/2011 Had demonstration of Webex online collaboration tool today. This is the tool that will bring this project together electronically. Psyched about playing around with it. Also spend time today gathering information and best practices for global collaboration in order to begin lesson plans. Still no luck finding partner classrooms, but the search continues... 6/21/2011 Spent the day at the North Carolina New Schools Project's Summer Institute in Durham. Sat in on sessions about STEM education, Project-Based Learning (which will be the core of my Kenan unit), and Scientific Inquiry. Kenan Fellows Daily Externship Reflection Name: ______________________________________________________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Paul Cancellieri 6/22/11 Slowly leaving the "research" phase of the externship. Starting to feel as though I have gathered all of the information, met all of the people, and used all of the tools that I can here. Still, I appreciate the space to continue to collaborate with experts and a focused atmosphere to plan out the unit. 6/23/11 Have some GREAT ideas for the final unit which will follow a Project-Based Learning (PBL) format. Have acquired some resources to learn more about it. Am also investigating using Webex Meeting Center as the digital meeting space in which my students will connect with experts and foreign classrooms. Will use edmodo.com for in-house collaboration. 6/24/11 Progress has been great on the instructional side of things. I have found some fantastic resources (books,people, websites) that will help me plan out the Problem-Based lessons and for my students to learn more about water use issues in this country. I have even connected with experts who can educate my students about the problems here and abroad. The Cisco tools are phenomenal and I hope/plan to use them extensively. The only concern is that I have not had as much progress as I would have hoped in finding partner schools. I have reached out to NAIS's Challenge 20/20 program, but they won't be assigning classroomsuntil September. I am working on connections in ePals, but this part has not been as easy as I had hoped. 6/27/11 Traveled to and attended NCCAT in Cullowhee. Met with other Fellows and created some great connections. Looking forward to incorporating some of their ideas into my project. 6/28/11 Spent the entire day participating in a workshop from the Center for Inquiry-based Learning (CIBL) on writing inquiry lessons. As a science teacher, I have received lots of training on inquiry lessons. Also, the sessions seemed a bit poorly organized. As a result, the time was not very productive. However, I was able to rough out a plan for the various lessons that will be a part of this unit. Kenan Fellows Daily Externship Reflection Name: ______________________________________________________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Date:______________ Paul Cancellieri 6/29/11 Spent today whitewater rafting on the Nantahela River. It was an amazing experience that will definitely inform my science lessons, particularly on the issue of water. Also, it was a fantastic team-building activity that has brought me closer to my peers in this Kenan cohort which will help me network with them on my project. 6/30/11 Today was spent continuing to learn about Inquiry based learning. Since I am a Science teacher who already uses Inquiry in my lessons, I am not finding this very useful. I definitely appreciate that this is the required format for our submitted lessons and that we need to learn how to use the CIBL lesson plan format. I prefer the 5E format, and it sounds like I will be able to continue to use this more rigorous format. Kenan Fellows Daily Externship Reflection Name: Paul Cancellieri Date: July 1, 2011 I spent today at home working on the overall organization of the unit. Made great progress and plotted out a timeline for future work on my project, based on conversations with my mentor. Date: July 4, 2011 Spent this holiday at home while the family was away on vacation, and managed to churn out some great ideas. I’ve been reading through some Project-Based Learning resources and have outlined how this project will work with PBL. Date: July 9, 2011 Responded to emails from several international schools. Completed the application for an international electronic exchange program. Wish I had more progress on this aspect of the project. Plan to contact Cisco for more help. Date: July 12, 2011 With feedback from a PBL specialist, I reworked several parts of my core lesson plan. Will need to focus on how to make the CIBL model jive with PBL. I don’t think that it will be an issue, but the biggest hurdle might be the difference in “lingo”. Date: July 13, 2011 Heard back from an Indian school that appears to be on board for a collaboration this fall. Excited to work out the details. I am especially intrigued because we haven’t found a school in our general time zone, which means that we will be focused on asynchronous collaboration, which I think is more authentic and more logistically feasible. Date: July 16, 2011 Slow day. Rearranged elements of the overall pacing of the unit. Date: July 17, 2011 Responded to more requests for information from Indian schools. Cisco has reached out to the NPOs (non-profit organizations) that they work with, and I have received eager greetings from some schools. I am no longer concerned that there won’t be a partner school to work with. Date: July 19, 2011 I have decided not to pursue the Brazil connection for my students. The fact that an Indian school is now all but guaranteed, and that Brazilian students might not speak English as well, has made it easier to focus on one or two school groups in Indian rather than Brazil. I am taking steps to focus the research aspects of the lesson plans on Indian water issues. Date: July 20. 2011 Reworked the timeline for the project based on the expectation that it will be interspersed with other curricular activities. Date: July 23, 2011 Received exciting news that a NPO that works to close the gap between rich and poor students in India wants their flagship school to participate in the project. Date: July 24, 2011 Met with mentor to update Cisco folks on the project. Date: July 26, 2011 More time spent today developing the outline of the lessons, in preparation for Summer Institute.
