3 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs High Level Goals What do you want to accomplish for your school, region or country? Look at long-term (3-5 years) and short-term goals (1-2 years) Junior Cycle Short Course Proposal Inquiry-based learning via Scientific Research Project –Long term goals –To support the new Irish framework for Junior Cycle by developing an inquiry-based learning short course culminating in a scientific research project –To achieve adoption of the approved short course by 5% of schools within 5 years –Short term goals –To scope and develop an action plan around the 5 key phases of short course development (appointing specific phase owners) –To achieve approval of the short course by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) in line with the introduction of the new science curriculum in September 2015 –To pilot the short course as a working version with a minimum of 1 school during the academic year

4 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs 4 Objectives How will you know you succeeded? Please list the results you want to see –The short course has completed its pilot implementation within 12 months –The official short course is made available as a standard offering with adoption by 5% of schools within 5 years –The short course supports the 21 st century skills as outlined in the revised Junior Certificate award* –The short course has integrated continuous assessment modules –The short course has an accompanying, accredited teacher training component, such as a workshop and online resources –The adoption of the short course drives increased participation in science fairs –Facilitate technology solutions required to support the project; –To deliver a dedicated resource website to support the project –Provide guidance to participating schools on a secure, online portal solution for capturing the outputs of the scientific research projects for evaluation *Managing myself, being creative, staying well, working with others, communicating, managing information and thinking and the development and numeracy and literacy throughout

6 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs 6 Reflection As a result of your participation in the 2014 Educator Academy, please reflect on your experience Highlight what your team felt was the key learning from the Educator Academy –The availability of online technology to help students share their work without boundaries and its relevance as an assessment tool and how that is applicable to Ireland and our new curriculum model –The network and sharing of best practice was key –Meeting experts in a variety of topic areas is a valuable resource –The concept of integrating research based modules into formal curriculum to improve science attainment was key What impressed you the most? –The investment in educators and the quality of the guest speakers and the program –We liked that there was more time for networking Which Shop Talks were the most beneficial for your team? –Harry Kroto –Larry Shoop –Jeffrey Charbonneau –Daniel Newmyer –Mick Ebeling, although not at the actual Ed Academy, was incredible and inspirational –Student ISEF panel, particularly the girls What would you improve? –A well moderated panel could be a good alternative at times to the shop talk –It would be good to have more of a workshop style to the earlier sessions to allow people to work together inter country, as opposed to just working in our country teams (it would be a good way to inform a country team plan later in the week) –Make sure the plenary keynotes have enough broad relevance for the entire audience –Would be good to provide evaluation of keynote speakers (not just shop talks) What types of Shop Talks were missing? - Perhaps more in terms of practical learnings (for instance, instead of some of the shorter shop talks have a longer workshop on something like robotics, mechanics etc.)
