8rinaldi2012-04-05T22:07:32-04:00@EzraAdams When you hand things over to students great things happen! Some students are talking about going to Guyana to help #isedchat

EzraAdams2012-04-05T22:04:41-04:00@8rinaldi Wow. Such interest is strong indicator of a worthwhile idea. Want to hear more as things progress. #isedchat

sarahhanawald2012-04-05T22:03:56-04:00@lcarroll94 thank you for moderating--I wonder if more schools will develop signature programs? #isedchat. seems important.

EzraAdams2012-04-05T22:03:17-04:00@lcarroll94 Thanks for guiding things! Lots of great ideas. Exciting times. Thanks to all for sharing. #Isedchat

bivey2012-04-05T22:01:54-04:00@lcarroll94 Thank you, and thanks all! #isedchat

lcarroll942012-04-05T22:01:40-04:00This is one of the quickest hours of my week! #Isedchat
12
lcarroll942012-04-05T22:01:05-04:00I think signature programs are very important, unique experiences for our students! Thanks to all of you for sharing! #isedchat
13
EzraAdams2012-04-05T22:00:22-04:00@bivey Blame it on peer pressure....keeping up with colleagues on #isedchat and all.
14
8rinaldi2012-04-05T22:00:11-04:00@EzraAdams Kids really taken off with it. Will continue with diff schools next year. Fundraisers/donated to library in Guyana #isedchat
15
lcarroll942012-04-05T22:00:10-04:00@bivey The girls who took me around couldn't stop talking about it! #powerfullearning #isedchat
16
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:59:46-04:00@EzraAdams I am hoping we have a "program blog" so we can talk about our experiences. We are VERY excited! #isedchat
17
bivey2012-04-05T21:59:46-04:00@lcarroll94 Yes, especially "Theory of Knowledge." :-) #isedchat First Diploma candidates next year.
18
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:58:54-04:00My mind is blown. Wow. MT@lcarroll94:cross curricular prg linking history, art, science. visits to site, skype sessions. :) #isedchat
19
bivey2012-04-05T21:58:43-04:00@EzraAdams Uh. Yeah. I was thinking, how many people may have seen that interchange?
#NoChoiceButToTryToDoItNow
#isedchat
20
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:58:02-04:00@bivey It was very clear that there was so much excitement about the program when I visited! #isedchat
21
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:57:27-04:00@8rinaldi That prg looks full of potential for all. #isedchat
22
bivey2012-04-05T21:56:38-04:00@lcarroll94 Well, as a middle school teacher, I'm a little on the fringe of our IB program. Know we align well, not many details. #isedchat

lcarroll942012-04-05T21:56:01-04:00@EzraAdams good way to look at that! #JustWentRogue #isedchat
25
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:55:20-04:00@bivey You & me both. Think the Twitterverse is big enough? #isedchat
26
sarahhanawald2012-04-05T21:55:16-04:00@drmcgettigan I'm embarrassed, but I don't know if GP is a class or a whole program. #isedchat
27
bivey2012-04-05T21:54:40-04:00@EzraAdams @lcarroll94 Ayuh. :-) #isedchat
28
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:54:33-04:00@bivey can you share the IB experience at SBS? #isedchat
29
bivey2012-04-05T21:54:15-04:00@lcarroll94 Student Voice a main part of our mission. Debate/Public Speaking serves that end effectively. #isedchat
30
drmcgettigan2012-04-05T21:54:10-04:00#isedchat We are piloting IB Global Politics next year :)
31
sarahhanawald2012-04-05T21:54:07-04:00Wow- @lcarroll94 will have a cross curricular program linking history, art, science. visits to their site, skype sessions #isedchat
32
bivey2012-04-05T21:53:20-04:00@EzraAdams Privately in tossing around ideas with a colleague. Probably time to take it to a larger constituency, eh?! #isedchat
33
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:53:04-04:00@lcarroll94 Some schools might flip this: how does acad prg support student experience? ;-) #JustWentRogue #isedchat
34
bivey2012-04-05T21:52:20-04:00@lcarroll94 Well, we're an IB World School. And we're doing the NAIS 20/20 Challenge program. #isedchat
35
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:51:54-04:00@bivey Have you made first steps toward such an event? #isedchat
36
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:51:35-04:00So many amazing programs in our schools.... what do all these programs add to the student experience? #isedchat
37
8rinaldi2012-04-05T21:51:27-04:00@lcarroll94 @sarahhanawald Awesome! Skype makes it so doable. #isedchat
38
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:50:51-04:00Anyone have a global education program? #isedchat
39
bivey2012-04-05T21:50:36-04:00@EzraAdams Exactly. And with debate/public speaking a focus in my school, TEDx (or similar) should be right up our alley. #isedchat
40
drmcgettigan2012-04-05T21:50:18-04:00@lcarroll94 #isedchat Love Mystic! Had 11 years of field trips there-great fun!

8rinaldi2012-04-05T21:48:38-04:00We have a trimester of community service for M/S. Go out about six times to diff places-daycare, lunchbox, state park etc #isedchat
44
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:48:23-04:00@bivey Ditto re TEDx event. Incredible opportunity. 5 yrs ago, idea was laughable. Now just a reach. :-) #isedchat
45
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:46:33-04:00@EzraAdams that's amazing! #isedchat
46
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:46:20-04:00@lcarroll94 We have many students who complete all hours in 1 wk in summer doing home repair mission trip #isedchat
47
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:45:29-04:00@lcarroll94 For com service, we provide some sources, but students must largely chase it down. #isedchat
48
bivey2012-04-05T21:45:18-04:00@lcarroll94 Chatham Hall does a Forensic Science summer camp for MS girls. Very cool. #isedchat
49
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:44:51-04:00We have also just created a formal partnership with Mystic Seaport-- beginning in grades 4- 5. REALLY excited about it! #isedchat
50
bivey2012-04-05T21:44:27-04:00@sarahhanawald @ezraadams Our MSers go out two hours every other week, so 30/year approx. #isedchat
51
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:44:15-04:00@lcarroll94 Saw interesting things ab adding Arts emphasis to STEM - making it STEAM. Impt for design, innovation. #isedchat
52
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:43:24-04:00@bivey We ran a STEM camp last summer for Middle School. It was a great experience for me as an educator: http://t.co/HFM7b8Pc #isedchat
53
bivey2012-04-05T21:43:22-04:00Anyone else thought of hosting a TEDx event? I'd like to see that happen some day in my school. #isedchat
54
sarahhanawald2012-04-05T21:43:11-04:00@EzraAdams We also have a requirement. 10 hours/year grades 9-12. #isedchat
55
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:41:04-04:00@lcarroll94 Also developing a new partnership w a local community leader for her youth l'ship events. #Excitingtimes #isedchat
56
bivey2012-04-05T21:40:44-04:00@sarahhanawald Hi! Yes, a lot of interest in STEM. A long-held hope of our school. In the Strategic Plan. Good to be moving. #isedchat
57
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:40:19-04:00@lcarroll94 We also partner w Amer Red Cross to host 3 diff 1-day l'ship conf. during the year. #isedchat
58
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:39:28-04:00@EzraAdams Are the opportunities provided by the school? or it is outside? or both? #isedchat
59
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:38:56-04:00@bivey Yes-- I am SO glad you got that feeling with the name. We debated it for a long time! It's exactly what we want to portray. #isedchat
60
sarahhanawald2012-04-05T21:38:51-04:00@bivey I love it when new folks come in a liven things up fast! #isedchat. Are pple excited about STEM?
61
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:38:51-04:00@lcarroll94 We have a 15 hr./year comm service requirement, gr. 6-8. #isedchat
62
bivey2012-04-05T21:38:20-04:00@lcarroll94 Sounds more like STEAM than STEM - a good thing, I'd say. #isedchat
63
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:38:18-04:00@bivey I look forward to hearing about that. What an amazing school to partner with! #isedchat
64
bivey2012-04-05T21:37:36-04:00@lcarroll94 I'm hoping we can build a partnership with Smith College's we engineering program, for one. #isedchat
65
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:37:24-04:00@bivey we are beginning a Science, Innovation & Design Program. A place, outside of the curriculum, for stds to find passion #isedchat
66
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:36:30-04:00@bivey that is awesome! any ideas on how it will work? #isedchat
67
bivey2012-04-05T21:36:25-04:00@lcarroll94 Depends on how you think about it. We have community service programs. Are exploring partnership ideas with Smith. #isedchat
68
bivey2012-04-05T21:34:57-04:00@lcarroll94 Not yet, but a first-year teacher with expertise is spearheading a STEM initiative. #isedchat
69
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:34:46-04:00how about partnerships with the community? Does anyone have a program that links to the "outside"? #isedchat
70
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:34:10-04:00@EzraAdams yes. very true. #isedchat
71
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:33:40-04:00@lcarroll94 Amazing, the influence an awkward senior has ovr a MS student. Must guide this to good, not evil. :-) #isedchat
72
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:33:18-04:00Anyone have a STEM program? #isedchat
73
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:32:54-04:00@EzraAdams PASSION does matter! I really feel that is so important. #sadbuttrue #isedchat
74
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:32:07-04:00@sarahhanawald You asked well. @Deacs84 is a rockstar by my definition. Great resources! #isedchat
75
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:31:53-04:00@EzraAdams yes- it has helped a lot in very tricky situations... social media, making good social decisions, relationships. #isedchat
76
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:31:18-04:00@EzraAdams agreed! #sadbuttrue #isedchat
77
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:30:56-04:00@sarahhanawald it's facinating to me. I will reach out to her. #isedchat
78
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:30:54-04:00@lcarroll94 #sadbuttrue. For some schools, passion still matters most. Try telling that to Harvard groupie parents.... #isedchat
79
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:29:45-04:00@lcarroll94 MS students only see "OMG Senior!", leaving opp for older student to practice influence, gain positive exp, etc. #isedchat
80
sarahhanawald2012-04-05T21:29:38-04:00@lcarroll94 Asks @Deacs84 about design thinking. Here are some NAIS resources: http://t.co/pUgxtk44 #isedchat
81
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:28:45-04:00@lcarroll94 Working with MS is fertile ground for HS students ovrlooked by own peers for l'ship opps. #isedchat
82
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:28:14-04:00@EzraAdams Yes true... but somehow the number of APs seems to be even more important these days... :( #isedchat
83
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:27:47-04:00@sarahhanawald Definitely. Chomping at the bit by end of 6th. Also shows up in alumni as they enter 9th gr-we are a PK-8. #isedchat
84
bivey2012-04-05T21:26:57-04:00RT @sarahhanawald: @lcarroll94 We have a capstone experience at Cannon, but signature is really adaptive expertise #isedchat http://t.co/fOny3oRm
85
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:26-04:00@lcarroll94 Student Council President still gets plenty of work-but if wasn't so, why would we have one? :-) #isedchat
86
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:25:07-04:00@lcarroll94 College counseling/curriculum guide can help educate receiving colleges on why this is impt. #isedchat
87
sarahhanawald2012-04-05T21:24:46-04:00@EzraAdams Do you find that you're prepping students earlier to try different roles? #isedchat
88
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:24:35-04:00Does anyone have any kind of design thinking lab/ fab lab program? #isedchat
89
reth1nk2012-04-05T21:24:11-04:00RT @schneiderb: Which Social Media Road Will You Take? http://t.co/7k52ciFA #isedchat
90
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:24:09-04:00Appears esp. effective for HS. Could translate to K-8, too. RT@lcarroll94: HH Peer #Leadership http://t.co/T6SZuTau #isedchat
91
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:23:55-04:00We also have a leadership program for seniors to work with Middle School. Not a course... extra curricular but formal. #isedchat
92
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:22:48-04:00@EzraAdams trips are an amazing opportunity for students for so many reasons. #isedchat
93
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:22:16-04:00@EzraAdams that's a great strategy. You are right... same kids usually are in the key positions. #isedchat
94
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:21:43-04:00@ian80aitken they are also getting the "message" that it isn't an "academic" enough for competitive colleges. #isedchat
95
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:21:30-04:00@ian80aitken Before we did that, most l'ship opps went to "the usual suspects." #isedchat
96
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:21:09-04:00@ian80aitken We started tracking every l'ship opp. we offered that was only for "some students." Really helped spread the opps. #isedchat
97
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:20:30-04:00@ian80aitken interesting... our 12th graders seem to be less interested in the program as well... a LOT of work. #isedchat
98
EzraAdams2012-04-05T21:20:07-04:00@lcarroll94 Ovrnite trips - spring of gr. 4,6,7,8 - plus #OutwardBound week in fall o 8th- also incl. strong l'ship components. #isedchat
99
sarahhanawald2012-04-05T21:19:43-04:00@lcarroll94 It is more passion based than cross curricular. #isedchat. Many have a service or arts focus.
100
lcarroll942012-04-05T21:19:35-04:00@sarahhanawald It is a great experience for our 9th graders... some of our 12th graders find it A LOT more work than a reg class #isedchat
