Event Description

Learn the Practical Steps to Develop & Implement STEM Learning in Your School or District

Like any initiative in education, incorporating the core concepts of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematic) education and Computer Science (CS) into instruction requires practical steps for deeper learning. Although STEM education is no longer a new educational reform initiative, and the Computer Science for All initiative has also taken off, there are more than half a million unfilled jobs in computing and technology right now in the U.S, and they will likely grow 2x faster than others. Computing is a necessary skill in every field, and the study of computer science (CS) should be foundational and not solely vocational in American schools. Any school or district wanting to start, develop, or enhance their STEM educational plan must understand the needs of students, the needs of the workforce funding streams, and what good STEM pedagogy looks in classrooms.

Attend this webinar by National Teacher Effectiveness Coach (NTEC) Jorge Valenzuela to learn how to develop and implement STEM learning in your school or district. Valenzuela will teach you how to determine the needs of your students and the workforce, and equip you with the basic knowledge of both STEM and Computer Science education and how they should intersect in your school. He will bring you up to speed with Makerspace, the curriculum resources and education technology for getting started, and other key factors to keep in mind. He walk you through authentic examples and best practices to help fast-track your efforts at fostering the skills to prepare your students for a global and competitive workplace.

After attending this webinar, you will understand the needs of your students, the needs of the workforce funding streams, and what good STEM pedagogy looks like in classrooms. You will know what practical steps to take for developing and implementing STEM learning. And you’ll be able to teach students (i) to be designers (creators), instead of end users (consumers) (ii) about the various Computer Science job roles in STEM, and (iii) the basics of programming and coding.
