Professional Development

Teacher Professional Development Collaborative

Integrating New Media and Marine Science

Mote Marine Laboratory proposes a three year pilot project to develop, test, deliver and  evaluate a series of professional development workshops for Florida K-12 teachers using new  digital media technologies to enhance learning on marine science issues related to local  ecosystems.  Workshops will provide up-to-date marine science content on five subjects and  will provide instruction and hands-on training in digital technology that will be integrated into  each topic for classroom use.

Each of the five workshops will have a different scientific focus but will have identical  technology training, as determined by the needs assessment.  The teachers will gain experience using appropriate software, hardware and online technologies and will create multimedia  teaching resources for use in their classrooms. The projects they create will be shared throughout the workshop through a specially designed web page, resulting in a collaborative,  feedback-driven process of development.  A technology-enhanced and science-rich project will be created by each participant that can be integrated into other aspects of their instruction in the classroom. Additionally, teachers will be encouraged to share their gained knowledge, resources and lessons with their colleagues.


Teachers of Grades 6-12

Mote Marine Laboratory will host a series of professional development workshops for formal classroom teachers. With these workshops, we hope to help inform and encourage best practices for collaborative teacher professional development integrating science and technology. Participating teachers will gain experience using appropriate technologies and will create multi‐media teaching resources for use in their classrooms. Additionally, teachers will be encouraged to share their new knowledge, resources and lessons with their school colleagues. Workshop content will be aligned with Florida standards, as well as county instructional resources with the ability to meet the specific needs of each school, grade, and class.
