Call for proposals for Summer Meeting (Deadline April 1)
The Summer Meeting is in July and breakout session submissions are due by April 1
The Summer Meeting is happening at the same time as the Earth Educator Rendezvous
Tamara Ledley may be attending and often puts something together. Feel free to reach out.
Margaret has been spearheading the recruitment efforts, focusing on North Carolina teacher
connections, blasting an ESIP listserv, disseminating to teacher connections.
Those who attend the webinar will receive preference for the workshop.
Is there a way for us to monitor those who could not watch the webinar live but did watch the
There is a $200 stipend for teachers who are in the Chapel Hill area and would like to attend the
Rebecca: investigate the ability to monitor recorded webinar watchers
Margaret: upload flyer and put in the folder LuAnn linked to in the wiki
All: disseminate information on the webinar and workshop
Review content and gather input/feedback for Webinars
Dan is working on Webinar 1 (March 22, 4PM ET) and Shelley is working on Webinar 2. You
can look to the slides for content outlines on both webinars. An important note regarding the
webinar and workshop: we have a limited scope that focuses on k-12 (mostly middle and high
school) use of drones. There is another ESIP drone cluster that is doing data intensive work.
Webinar 2 will dive into data science and Shelley is currently working on the content. She is
looking for a partner. LuAnn has reached out to the ESIP drone cluster for input. The current
setup of Workshop 2 is: Plan, Fly, Review. This will include additional resources that are helpful
for analyzing the data.
Global Systems Science software is free and designed for this work specifically. The software
can help with spatial, color, and temporal analysis.
Four drones have been distributed to LuAnn, Shelley, Dan, and Preston. They plan to hold a
separate call to discuss their experiences and share best practices.
- Workshop: Dan will be the instructor and Margaret is working on logistics and recruitment.
May have ignite style presentations and ask the opinions of ESIP members.
- eBook: (Preston to take the lead) Activities are already being compiled in the deck, and urge
people to add more activities that would be useful for an eBook. We will use the workshop as
an opportunity to polish and refine the activities. Margaret will write one of the lesson plans.
LuAnn, Shelley, Dan, Preston: coordinate a time for a phone call to discuss drones via email for
sometime early next week.
Shelley: Sean Barbary may be a good person to reach out to for a partner on Webinar 2
Margaret & Dan: flesh out ideas for the workshop in the deck
All: add any pertinent information for the Webinars, Workshop, or eBook to the deck, identify
additional potential funding opportunities for the eBook
Review pre-event survey for Webinars/Workshop
- The objective of the survey is to assess the needs of teachers, so that we can see funding for
additional drone education and scale up. The survey seeks to understand who the teachers
are, their background, courses they teach, level of interest in drones, types of students they
work with, etc.
- Suggestion for the survey: without making the survey too complex, take out the “check all”
option, and reformat, asking the teachers to rank by level of interest. All are invited to look at
the word document and give any suggestions.
- Survey distribution: teachers will register via the ESIP webpage, Margaret will receive the
emails and send out the survey. There is only room for 15 participants and the webinar and
survey are prerequisites for participation, which incentivizes the teachers to fill out the survey
All: take a look at the survey document and make comments/suggestions
