QUEST is gearing up for the 2010-2011 Science Education Institute, a professional development opportunity for educators designed to support multimedia integration in middle and high school science programs! We seek to work directly with teams of Bay Area teachers and informal educators dedicated to enhancing their students’ 21st century skills in science.
The Institute will focus on creating science-based media with students and using the high-quality multimedia resources available from QUEST. During the Institute, each team of educators will plan and then implement a media-making project.
• Early August 2010: 3-day training intensive
• September 2010–January 2011: monthly skill-building and project planning workshops
• Spring 2011: project implementation
• May 2011: project presentation and final celebration
Participants will learn how to use video and audio as effective teaching tools, and be trained on Google maps, Flip video, iMovie and Movie Maker for use in science classrooms and programs.
