  • Had just finished this book, the last thing I read was, “There are 2 mistakes one can make... \nnot going all of the way and not starting.” I was ready to take on the world. \n\nIn the next few days, I received the Request for Presentations for NYSCATE... and here we are\n\nBeen cursing this book for weeks! But I am ready to have a go...\n\nMy goal for today is to lead us down a path to understanding projects and how technology can help us, and to provide a framework for sharing projects that you can use in your classroom next Monday.\n\nI use projects in my classroom and collaborate with other teachers in my building, but I am by no means an expert. Together, we are. \n

  • “School is a place where students learn largely by working on projects that come from their own interests — their own visions of a place where they want to be, a thing they want to make or a subject they want to explore. The contribution of technology is that it makes possible projects that are both very difficult and very engaging.\n\nIt is a place where teachers do not provide information. The teacher helps the student find information and learn skills — including some that neither knew before. They are always learning together. The teacher brings wisdom, perspective and maturity to the learning. The student brings freshness and enthusiasm. All the time they are all meeting new ideas and building new skills that they need for their projects. Some of what they learn belongs to the disciplines school has always recognized: reading, writing, mathematics, science and history. Some belongs to new disciplines or cut across disciplines. Most importantly, students and teachers are learning the art and skill and discipline of pursuing a vision through the frustrating and hard times of struggle and the rewarding times of getting closer to the goal.”\n\nHard Fun.\n\nIn the end do we allow students to do new things? Do we light fires? Do we allow for curiosity? Do we make things difficult and engaging? I believe projects are a way to achieve all of the above.\n\n
  • What do you hope to instill in your students? \nWhat skills, talents, and traits do you want your students to leave your classroom with?\n\nresearch skills, learning process, struggle, learning from failure, ability to persevere, become an expert, collaborate, take risks, present have passion, etc\n\nIf those are your goals, how do you know a student is really learning?\n\n\n
  • What do you consider success? Is success passing? Knowing? Completing?\n\nDo we have to redefine what we consider success? \n\nPico Crickets Project- Group taking biggest risks felt like they failed, nothing to show at the end of project, group playing it safe... big cheers because of they got something to work.\n\n\n
  • What do you consider to be a project?\nVolcano models, Longhouses?\n\nSomething that solves a problem\nProvides an experience\nAccording to Gary Stager- Construction of Knowledge\n\nHaudenosaunee tool Project- Describe project, and PICO tool project that followed\n\n
  • \n
  • Project is not relevant to the students\nProject is ether too complex or too easy\nTime- Too much, too little\nLack of resources, tech included\n\nWhat about students? How many of you find that students aren’t comfortable with independence? How important is the development of community in the classroom?\n\n\n\n
  • Kids may come to you from classrooms where worksheets and packets are the culture? \n\nHow do you develop an identity for a class and the community that enables kids to take risks? Problem solve? \nLearn in an environment where a teacher is not in the front of the classroom?\n\n
  • These are pics from the first 3 days of school.\n\nMarshmallow towers- Take risks, work together\nFloating Clay Experiment- Failure, learning form mistakes\nFriday Flowers- Appreciating each other, caring for one another, saying thanks\nGarden- Inspire a common a common area of interest, area for further research, work, etc.\n
  • Underlying \nUbiquitous\nTransformational\n\nHow has technology helped you and your students complete a project?\nScience Leadership Academy Mission\nInquiry, Research, collaboration, publication, reflection\n\n\n
  • \n
  • Philosophy on tools- Keep it simple... \n\nShare what we have used each tool for\n
  • You are experts too: What projects do you do with your students? \n\nShare dumping grounds for ideas on wiki\n
  • \n
  • Dean Shereski’s project- What do you want to learn? \n\nGuitar...\n\nGoal of the project: Learn about something new, something you have always wanted to learn about/how to do, go deep into something the student wonders about\n\nCollateral Learning: Reflecting on the learning process through documentation, learning from mistakes/failure, researching, collaborating, publication skills\n
  • Lets get the gripes out.\n\nCurriculum?\nTests?\nTeaching skills?\n\n
