Congratulations to New Century 2nd and 3rd grade teacher, Larry Gundlach, who was recently named Field Day Fellow for his innovative teaching using Siftr, an innovative teacher tool! 

Mr. Gundlach used Siftr, an online app for collecting geo-locative photos, to teach poetry to 2nd and 3rd graders. He will continue exploring what can be done with Siftr as well as advise us on the future of the Siftr platform.

The goal of the Field Day Fellowship is to partner with educators who are invested in designing interactive and hands-on opportunities that promote learning through design and/or engage students in doing field research.

The Fellowship, which began July 1, is six months long. During the first phase, each teacher works alongside a Field Day designer and researcher to develop a project and a research protocol. During the second phase of the fellowship the teachers will implement their project and help Field Day study its impact on student learning.

By the end of the fellowship, each teacher will have produced with us a new method, story, game, or technology that can be reused, improved upon, and freely spread throughout Wisconsin. This co-research and implementation method is one way the Field Day Fellowship stands out from many other professional development and design initiatives."
