Pine Grove STEAM Team
8th Grade, Trans-Disciplinary
Pine Grove Middle School
East Syracuse Minoa Central School District 


The STEAM Team is a trans-disciplinary group of eighth grade teachers at Pine Grove Middle School in the East Syracuse-Minoa Central School District. The team is focused on creating 21st century learning opportunities by integrating technology and engineering principles into Science, Math, English Language Arts and Social Studies. They are currently in the fourth year of implementation working in this framework. Team members include Jason Fahy, Physical Science; Kevin Michaud, Social Studies; Tina Oakley, Math; Nicole Petranchuk, Writing; Tim Patterson, Technology; Scott Poter, Special Education; Taylor Hunt, Literature; Scott Porter, Special Education; and Diandra Western, Teaching Assistant.

What are some of the innovative ways you are integrating technology into your curriculum?
The STEAM Team views students' interaction with technology as an opportunity for them to appropriately participate in a society that increasingly relies on digital literacy. They use various tools to enhance student communications and to assist student with problem solving activities. As a way to provide student immediate feedback on meeting team classroom behavior expectations they regularly use ClassDojo. They use online tools such as Socrative and Quizlet as a way to extend time for learning beyond the regular school day. We find that Twitter and Remind are useful tools to keep the community informed on student experiences. Much of our classes are enhanced by the use of Google tools, such as Blogger, Drive and SketchUp.  [more...]
