A Student Technology Intern, A Semester of Meaningful Work & A Dear Data Style Reflection
This is the latest in a series of blogs by a partnering cohort teacher - this time with a special guest!
By: Mike Zolnierczyk & Brett Slezak, Allegheny Valley School District
This year at Allegheny Valley School District, Mike Zolnierczyk (a senior student) and Brett Slezak (a central technology administrator) embarked on a brand new journey of creating a Educational Technology Internship, in which the two worked together to create more meaningful learning experience through hands-on work. At the end of the semester, as a final project both of them sat down and co-created questions they thought would be interesting to know about each other’s thoughts on the program. Inspired by the Dear Data project, they answered the same exact questions separately to be able to compare each others honest responses.
Here are those responses:
Can you describe your experience in participating in the AVSD Ed Tech Internship program?
How has inquiry or your own passions guided what you did this semester?
How was that experience different than what you were expecting or what people have expected of you before?
Do you feel like you understood the other person’s expectations? How do you feel like you met those expectations?
How have you grown from the experience?
