Short Term Goal: I feel that my Instrumental Thinking reflects my short term goals with the implementation and completion of my ImagineIt project for this year. In the process, students are strengthening their mathematical discourse and use of vocabulary by integrating technology to enhance student learning with a variety of student created digital vocabulary projects.
Long Term Goal: My long term goal or Missional Thinking entails taking what I have learned in this STEM program and my ImagineIt project and partnering with a fellow from my school and his ImagineIt project and having professional developments and cycles for professional learning to strengthen and increase STEM in our building. All of our resources and experiences combined, with the support of the administration, can build on Nobel’s understanding of STEM and how it can be enhanced in everyone’s classroom.
I would also like to sponsor after school enrichment programs that entail STEM activities, such as Lego robotics and coding, to name a few. I believe this will provide Noble’s students and families with opportunities to explore and understand the meaning of STEM through hands-on approaches enhancing creativity across the disciplines.
