Part II: Reflection

(Minimum of 3-4 sentences per question)

1. Briefly describe the field experience. What did you learn about technology facilitation and leadership from completing this field experience?
I was very hesitant about how I would respond to my peers and give them constructive criticism. I am not the one to make anyone mad and like to keep the peace with everyone. With the help of the coaching checklist, I felt like I could be a competent and effective coach while getting my point across. It gave me things to think about and look for. The engaged learning project really opened my eyes to how effective I can be as a teacher and coach in the classroom and with my peers while trying to incorporate technology.

2. How did this learning relate to the knowledge (what must you know), skills (what must you be able to do) and dispositions (attitudes, beliefs, enthusiasm) required of a technology facilitator or technology leader? (Refer to the standards you selected in Part I. Use the language of the PSC standards in your answer and reflect on all 3knowledge, skills, and dispositions.)
The students must know about World War II according to the Georgia Performance Standards. Reading, Language Arts and Math will also be involved in the implementation of this project. The students must know, understand and master these standards. The students must be able to use technology to research facts on World War II, use video, webcams or FaceTime to conduct an interview with World War Veterans. Then they will create a website to relay this information using Weebly. They will also create a blog with a daily reflection of the days learning. They will be able to use different options. They can type it out, record a video or audio to post on the website. With the hook I have developed, the students will absolutely love this project. I am getting My Uncle Sam to visit the class with his uniform on and bring artifacts with him of World War II. Being a veteran my Uncle Same will talk about his experiences of World War II. This will get the kids interested in. I could also see this getting other students in the lower grades excited to experience this when they are in the 5 th grade and will give them something to look for. This project may also peak other teachers curiosity and will lead them to developing projects like this!

3. Describe how this field experience impacted school improvement, faculty development or student learning at your school. How can the impact be assessed?
My engaged learning project will help make learning World War II very interesting, meaningful and authentic to the students. This is a Georgia Performance Standard that needs to be mastered and exceeded in Social Studies. I also incorporated Reading, Language Arts and Math to make it multicultural so it also covers the new Common Core GPS. The students will be tested over these Standards in April on the Georgia CRCT. The impact will be accessed first through a rubric and observation graded by the teacher. The teacher will also have feedback in May when the scores come in from the CRCT to see if learning was taken place and if the project was effective.
