The Learning to Research project and summer institute will allow me to make some great contacts for my own professional development and for my students. This will enhance both of our learning experiences about many topics besides climate change. One never knows where meeting such like minded and outstanding teachers will lead.
This project will increase my knowledge about climate change to better educate my students and indirectly the surrounding community.
Lastly, I want to learn as much about the types of technology that can be used in the classroom and to use the technology I have tried much more effectively I've been able to use some of what is available but there is much more that I can learn from the institute as well as from the other teachers in attendance.
