BP
TS Reflection
:

The child study
project involved a case study through
observations of one child. I relied
heavily on the text for standard
behaviors
because I used a relative.
Using the text allowed me to separate
emotional from clinical observations.


The career development over a life
span project was an important part of
the learning
process. The job of the
media specialist is constantly evolv
ing
and it is necessary to adapt to the rapid
changes in the field of education. From
the research done on this project, I
learned that most people will need to
change and adapt multiple times
throughout their lives
. It is important to
understand why and h
ow people view
careers at different periods in their
lives.

Conceptual Framework Reflection
:


Being inquisitive opens your mind to
new ideas and skills. The research on
these two projects provided new
information that shows how important
life
-
long
learning is. As a media
specialist helping others facilitate their
own learning is one of the
best parts of
my job.


As I am asked to help others
facilitate their learning, there are
opportunities for anecdotal examples
that can provide the patron a fee
ling of
belonging
. Drawing on the experience
of others and sharing that knowledge
provides a feeling of community among
learners.


These projects have helped me to
develop programs that will help
teachers adapt to the new technologies
which they are ex
pected to use. I am
able to show how my teaching practice
has changed to better engage the 21
st

century learner.

TS Reflection
:

This project took
some traditional skills that have been
tau
ght and put them into a 21
st

century
framework. The students read a book of
their own choosing and then posted a
book “review” electronically. They used
the library catalog system that is used
at my school.

Conceptual Framework Reflection
:


This project required me to work
with the sixth grade language arts
teachers and students.

Students
worked with each other to proof reviews
and share what they had learned.


This project allowed me to share
with the students and teachers
knowled
ge about “card” catalog
systems which can be used for multiple
courses and libraries.
S
tudent

were
encouraged to demonstrate their
knowledge to

BP
TS Reflection
:

For this project, I
had to learn a nearly brand new skill. It
was made easier by the Expressions
Web software which is used at my
school. I am not the web master for my
school

and I have had little opportunity
to increase my skill level. At the end of
t
he Ed.S. program, I am planning to find
another host site and link this through
my school sponsored blog.

Conceptual Framework Reflection
:

Most of the students at my school have
a general understanding
of how to find
materials in a library. However, the
s
ixth graders in particular have had
difficulty transferring the knowledge of
locating materials from one library to
another. This website provides a step
by step process to accessing material
at my school. It provides multiple
points of access for both t
eachers and
students. Language Arts teachers have
placed this link on their blogs for easy
student use.

TS Reflection
:

T
his power point
was used to reacquaint
and encourage
teachers in my building
to use

what is
available through and with the media
center.
Using this power point as a
beginning point for collaboration,
teachers and students in

6
th

grade
Language Arts classes demonstrated
more use of available technology
resources and incorporated m
ore
technology integration in their lessons.

Conceptual Framework Reflection
:

Because of this project and MEDT7485,
I realized that waiting for teach
ers to
come to me was not the optimum
method of delivery. I became a full
collaborative
partner with

the 6
th

grade
Language Arts teachers in order to
demonstrate my commitment to helping
them integrate language arts into the
curriculum.
Some of the
teachers were
afraid of the new methods and the time
it would take to complete projects. By
going to the classroom, teaching and
evaluating student products, teachers
became more comfortable with many of
the processes. (Among the teachers,
there continues
to be varying levels of
technology integration.)

Commitment to collaboration was key
to success for this ongoing project.
Teachers in other grade levels and
subject areas are now willing to
collaborate.

Students began blogging, podcasting,
posting book rev
iews online, and
demonstrating

their learning
with group
projects which included play writing and
performances.

BP
TS Reflection
:

Completing this
project took a great deal of time

and
reflection. Much of the
literature
discussed

a need for on
-
going train
in
g,
collaboration
,

and support if technology
will be
truly integrated into the learning
process of students in the 21
st

century.
The need for teachers to become
comfortable with
the pedagogy of
student centered learning is also
essential to the process.


The introduction video increased
my knowledge of how to use
PhotoStory3. This technology is a
useful presentation tool for but teachers
and students. These videos can be
eas
ily uploaded to the Internet and
teacher b
lo
gs.

Conceptual Framework Reflection
:
Collaborating with teachers
will help
support their efforts to integrate
effective technologies into lessons. As
the media specialist, being a
collaborative partner, provides
a means
of exposing and teaching
teachers to
new technologies is becoming an
important part of the job I do. This
project also gave me an insight into
how teachers are required to meet
standards while exploring new ideas. I
had never considered the “fear f
actor”
of teaching before doing this research.
All teachers want their students to
succeed. With new teacher evaluations
that may depend on a standardized test
of student performance, the support
and understanding will become more
critical.

I enjoyed
reading the research that had
been done on technology integration
and the barriers that exist. Through
continued professional reading
, I will
seek better methods of implementation.


I am now comfortable using and
teaching PhotoStory3 to teachers and
st
udents.

S Reflection
:

This project
allowed me to provide my
administration with clear concise data
about
the media center. As part of the
evaluation process this was a valuable
tool. It will be updated and used
annually. It provided an easy tool for
communicating the “business” part of
what takes place in the media center.

Conceptual Framework Reflection
:

By providing this type of information, it
demonstrates what can take place in a
media program. It provides a means of
advocacy for the med
ia program and
how it supports the school improvement
plan (SLP) and the mission of the
media center, school, and sch
ool
district.

It provides a means for demonstrating
the support for the level of staffing and
budget. Additionally, it provides a
means

of demonstrating

how
technology integration can be
supported across all grade levels and
curriculum.

NB
TS Reflection
:

The requirement of
a reflection paper for this course forced
me to put my thought into words.

I
believe that the projects of this course
and the Ed.S.
Program have

changed
how I approach my job and how well
the media center program
meets the
needs of the teachers and students of
my school. Putting it “on paper”
provides a framework that will
guide

future practices.

Conceptual Framework Reflection
:



This particular standard has been
difficult for me to meet. I feel strongly
about the value of what I do, but I
struggle with putting it on paper. These
reflections need to be detailed and
meaningful
.

They need to show
professional growth. These reflections
can provide a benchmark of strengths
to be shared and weaknesses that can
be improved.

TS Reflection
:

This power point will
be used during a professional
development
seminar. Teachers will be
required to adapt to new 21
st

century
standards. This gives a framework for
understanding
how people learn at
different stages over their life span.


Conceptual Framework Reflection
:


The research done for this project
shows how important it is to adapt over
time to accommodate personal interest
and abilities as well as the changing
conditions in which we live and teach.


Applying the knowled
ge gained
through this project forced me to
reflect

on my own practices and where I will
take my career practice in the future
. It
has made me more sensitive
to
the
resistance that accompanies change
and how to ease that resistance when
providing professio
nal learning for staff
or at seminars.

BP
TS Reflection
:

When I was working
on ethics projects for MEDT 8464, a 6
th

grade social studies teacher
approached me to do a lesson on
plagiarism before a research project
would begin. Originally, I had planned
to produce a
pamphlet for distribution
but that did not translate well for a 6
th

grade lesson. This power point was
p
resented instead.

I used the power point as a starter for
conversations with the students about
what they knew and believed. What
could have been a truly boring lesson
was well received by the students and
the teacher. To my surprise
and
satisfaction,

o
ne
class had so much fun
that they applauded at the end of the
lesson.

The teacher was so pleased
that he suggested that I collaborate with
other groups and he told other teachers
about the presentation which did lead to
further collaboration with different g
rade
levels and curriculum areas.

Conceptual Framework Reflection
:

This standard is one that must
constantly be

at the forefront of
professional practices. Promotion of
ethical equitable use of rescores is a
daily challenge. Students and teachers
need to understand how to use what is
available while giving proper credit to
the source.
This has become increasing
i
mportant as more students use the
Internet at school and at home. Part of
this project showed the students how to
create a citation for information
gathered from the Internet and that the
source for my project granted
permission for use if the source was
c
redited.


Whenever teaching a lesson that
involves the Internet, I make it a
practice to teach the students how to
create a citation and how to access and
evaluate sources.

TS Reflection
:

This project was
one that I had requested to present to
the PTA on a number of occasions.
This year’s president was willing for me
make a presentation at a meeting. I
chose the December 2009 because I
anticipated that there
would be a large
number of pa
rents in attendance
because of numerous student
presentations.

The program was well received and the
PTA board requested that I repeat the
program during conference week in a
setting where parents could have hands
on practice with the available programs
an
d data bases.

This provided me with
an opportunity to collaborate with
parents about student learning.

Conceptual Framework Reflection
:

I believe that media specialists should
advocate for their profession whenever
possible. Presentations for parent
group
s can have a significant impact by
training parents to help students use
resources safely and efficiently. The
community needs to understand that
media specialists do much more than
check out books We are
a valuable

resource for student learning
and
teac
hing skill that promote life
-
long
learning. Skills taught through the
media program can transfer to a variety
of learning situations and interests.
