    This is really cool work. 

    Can you say more about how you establish the relationships with the classrooms around the world? Are these pre-existing relationships? 

    Also, I really appreciated hearing about the experiences teachers had and what they gained from this experience from the teachers themselves. What metrics are you using to capture this impact on the teachers? 

    Thanks!

    Thank you, Mr. Cannady,

    My interaction with the Global Education in Morroco and Russia has opened my eyes to the communication gap that sometimes can be overlooked between the teacher and students from different backgrounds. Such experience like this helped me fill in these gaps along with my ability to convey the same to my fellow teachers to better benefit the level of education that we aiming for. It also, open my eyes on how the communication barrier can be more challenging than the language barrier.

    All in all, my experience has confirmed my theory that's willing to learn is universal regardless of language, race or culture.

    Dear Mr. Cannady, 

    Thank you for your interest in our work! 

    Personally, I gained so much from this experience. Without the opportunity to travel to St. Petersburg, Russia through this unique program, I'm not sure I would have ever learned about, or experienced international education.

    During my time in Russia, I learned a lot about culture and its influence on education. This was an eye opening experience because as a New York City public school teacher, my classroom is extremely diverse. I have students from all over the world, some of which are completely new to our country. Traveling to Russia helped me to appreciate different cultural perspectives on education, which is important for me as a teacher. 

    Overall, this was an amazing experience that taught me much more than I would ever learn inside a classroom.

    Dear Mac,

    College of Staten Island has very diverse faculty from all around the world. We started by using existing relationship of our faculty. As program developed and we started to see interesting results, we presented at International Congress for Mathematics Education in 2014 in Hamburg and that helped to establish new connections. We are now in conversations with Hungary, Germany and Israel, and I hope we will find interested educators to bring our scholars and alumni to Scandinavian and Asian countries as well.

    In order to capture impact of the program we analyzed videos of teaching we have from the participants when they were in methods courses and student teaching practicum. We collect reflections from them during the program and we also ask for reflections and videos of teaching 1-2 years after the program. 

    I will leave up to my co-presenters to answer your second question. Thank you again for your interest!

    Thank you, Mac!

    Because of this program, I traveled to Russia and Morocco where I was able to learn about their education systems, teach chemistry classes to Russian and Moroccan students, and speak/collaborate with teachers and students at the high school and university level. I was able to sit down and observe high school physics, chemistry, and mathematics classes where I was able to see the classroom dynamics between the teacher and student and the level of rigor being taught at each grade level - both of which are very different than where I teach. In New York City we have a diverse population of students from around the world, which made it truly exciting and relevant to experience classroom environments and learn about academic expectations they may have previously experienced!

    Thanks for sharing this very interesting work! I am inspired by this work and would like to make such experiences accessible to my students and staff. We have contacts that could be leveraged (as Irina describes above), but I wonder if you could please comment on how you have (a) integrated this into the program (e.g. part of a class, an extra? for credit, certificate, something else) and (b) how such experiences can be made affordable in the absence of a grant?

    Thanks!

    Dear Susan, thank you, you raised very important questions. This PD program is not part of course credit work. Since we have track 2 Noyce grant, this program is open to both, Noyce scholars and Noyce alumni. For alumni who are teachers we provide CTLE credits for this PD (that is continuing education units in New York) since our college is accredited PD provider. For undergraduate students in the program this is an extra-credit activity that they could use towards their honors program or just as a great experience to have.

    We started to look at various options to make this program affordable when there will be no grant funding. I can only provide some ideas we have at this time, since we haven't implemented them yet. We are looking at possibilities of exchanges with home stays for this program - that would cover room and board expenses. Our Office for Global Engagement usually has financial aid for study abroad. We started discussions about possibilities to expand that to non-credit bearing international programs and if that will go forward we will be able to get stipends for our participants to cover travel expenses. Honors college has funds for our students for signature experiences, so there is an opportunity for Noyce Scholars to save these funds towards this program. 

    These are just few ideas we considered so far. If you have any other suggestions, we would love to hear them! Thank you.

    Children learn best through hands on experiences.

    The information they learn becomes part of them and easily connects to real world understanding. Performance based learning has proven time and again to be the most valuable experience. Assessing students’ understanding of science, Math, Social Studies, and more, can only become meaningful when students are part of the process and totally entrenched in the “doing”.

    These videos demonstrate the power of exploration and learning through authentic experiences.We must, as a country, rethink our priorities and follow the model of these powerful educators,

    Dear Renae, thank you for your interest. Our Noyce alumni become teacher-leaders in their schools when they are still novice teachers. Most of them become cooperating teachers and they mentor student-teachers, sharing their experiences. Many of them lead professional development workshops in their schools for their peers. Several teachers went to regional, state, and national conferences to share their work. When you are asking about learning more - do you want to learn more about this particular international experience or about our whole program?

    Renae, 

    As a teacher in this project, I have shared my experiences with co-teachers by implementing new techniques in daily lessons. This project not only improved my teaching skills, but it gave me the opportunity to further connect with students. Since I have students from different countries, I am able to share my experiences in places that they may have come from. Being in the Galapagos helped me tremendously because I learned how to speak Spanish while teaching math. Now I can better communicate with my Spanish speaking students.

As educators, we really don't get to explore our profession and collaborate with teachers and students around the world. This really is very exciting.

    I totally agree, this professional development experience was a unique opportunity to change how we see the students that sit before us. Especially as a teacher in NYC, there are students of all different cultures in my classroom. Having this experience as a pre-service teacher really impacted my instruction, and my connection to my students.

    Very cool— applause to this global, teacher PD endeavor. Aside from reflections, were there any post-trip requirements for the teacher (ie presentation to their dept, or perhaps a video summary of takeaways as part of a larger repository for others, etc)?  The reflections are a great source of data, I’d recommend checking out epistemic network analysis (ENA) as a methodology to visualize the change in connections from a teacher’s initial return to the data collected one or two years later

    I feel that traveling to international countries has been the greatest personal factor in growing professionally as a teacher, so I can only imagine how your students must feel about The Globe Program and how much they must learn. 

    How are the research projects for The Globe Program chosen each year? Because the students present their findings in a research conference following the international program, does each group present different research?
