Title: Casting Knowledge: Building an On-Line Community of Practice with LeadercastDescription: For my action research project I integrated digital stories from officers that served in Iraq & Afghanistan into the main discussion forums of the MILSPACE On-Line Community of Practice. Community members viewed and were able to interact with the interviewee further if they had questions or comments about the experience being shared in the video.

Bio: I am a proud member of MALT 14. I am in the program in preparation for an assignment to the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. At West Point I will be assigned to the Center for the Advancement of Leader Development and Organizational Learning (CALDOL) and in addition to my teaching duties will be a member of the core support team of the MILSPACE Community of PRACTICE. MY Action Research focused on integrating digital stories into an on-line community of practice. You can read my research at my website listed below. I received the CP Square Action Research Award for my project.

David Greenfield (C9)

Time: 9:45am

Title: STEM, STEAM and CollaborationDescription: I will present examples of trans-disciplinary and multi-institutional collaborations (computer science-dance & music, museums-schools,) that engage learners in formal arts education, to develop innovative partnerships and encourage creative problem solving.

Bio: I am a currently a doctoral candidate in the DELT program here at Pepperdine. My primary area of research is about using mobile technologies to create trans-disciplinary collaborations in order engage users in learning and to build communities of practice. Since 1990 I have been professionally involved in new media, museums, education and academia. I have been long interested in the role of digital technology plays in enhancing learning environments and promoting community along with the use of narrative and storytelling as educational models. Additionally, I am an advocate for integrating formal arts education into STEM environments, transforming them to STEAM.

Session: T5

Andrea Flagiello & Jackie Sandoval (C14)

Time: 11:00am

Title: Building a stronger MALT Community!Description: MALTERS ASSEMBLE! Be part of something bigger than you! Since the MALT program began, students graduate with relief, but then go through a bit of withdrawal as they often no longer connect with like-minded individuals on a regular basis. As MALT alumni, you know the power of groups and collaboration. In this session, members from cadre 14 want to work with you to create a plan to bridge the gaps between cadres and within cadres.

Bio: I recently wrapped up my seventh year in teaching. I have taught third and fifth grade along with drama, beginner Spanish, art, and career development. I have taught in Hawaii, Virginia, and now southern California. For the last three years I have been working as a technology specialist extraordinaire in an elementary school. I currently teach all students, maintain technology, and support teachers in my free time. I am always looking for the next adventure. Now that MALT is almost finished, I am wondering what my next move might be.

Session: T6

Jeff & Maria Lee

(C3 & C11)

Time: 11:30am

Title: Himalayan Communities Leverage 21st Century Technology To Solve ProblemsDescription: This is a project that is sponsored by Community Development Network. In the summer of 2011, CDN conducted training for rural technology center leaders from 8 villages in Nepal focusing on using Voicethread alongside ProLiteracy’s FAMA Codes. Much of the FAMA Codes focus on everyday issues including health and sanitation, savings and loan and HIV awareness. This innovative approach allows low tech users to engage with rich content that is picture and discussion driven.

Bio: Jeff was a in Cadre 3 and was a doctoral graduate from Pepperdine and currently teaches at Azusa Pacific University. Jeff’s research work focuses on technology in rural Himalayan villages focusing on empowering rural communities through technology.

Maria was part of Cadre 11.  She has taught at both the elementary and high school levels.  Most recently she has worked with at-risk youth who are recovering credits through an online credit recovery program.  Her expertise also allow her to travel and work with the youth in Nepal.
