INNOVATIVE EDUCATORS: MHS Science teachers named "2017 Innovative Educators" by ideastream Education
When Mayfield High School Science teachers Corey Rice, Lisa Heinl and Heather Wellendorf decided to ask their students to contemplate and solve real world problems with instructional technology, little did they know then that they would end up at Cedar Point, and ultimately named the 2017 Innovative Educators by ideastream Education.
But the teachers, their Math 4 Honors and Engineering students and Engineers from Progressive collaborated over 8 months to create and capture GPS data that maps out the paths of rides at Cedar Point using Cross Curricular Project Based Learning.
Teachers Corey Rice, Lina Heinl and Heather Wellendorf were honored by the ideastream Education Advisory Council on April 25th for "successfully integrating instructional technology into teaching and learning to foster student success."
Our Mayfield teachers made a presentation on innovative education and best practices to the ideastream Education Advisory Council.
"When we proceeded with the challenge, we took 70 students on a wild educational journey," Ms. Wellendorf said.
