Are you looking for a different type of professional learning experience that will actively support you in trying new instructional strategies in an exciting multi-age learning environment? Join Learning Technology Integrators (LTIs), Instructional Coaches, and other educators from our school division as we design and facilitate technology-supported student learning experiences this summer at CoderDojo. Interested teachers should complete the CoderDojo 2019 Fellowship Application by May 31, 2019.
CoderDojo provides students from Albemarle County Public Schools with opportunities for creativity, innovation and fun. It also is the perfect environment to express your creativity as a teacher. Students will have access to a variety of technology experiences, including coding, digital music production, virtual reality, 3D design and printing, engineering, robotics, and more. Working with LTIs and Instructional Coaches, teaching fellows will facilitate the project-based learning and student-centered experience that is at the heart of CoderDojo.
Not only will teachers receive recertification points and a stipend, but they also will have the opportunity to facilitate student learning in a progressive and innovation-based learning environment. The instructional environment at ACPS CoderDojo supports student agency and open-ended learning in the classroom.
Session 1 | July 8-11 | 12 to 3:45 p.m.
Session 2 | July 15-19 | 12 to 3:45 p.m.
Participating fellows will receive a $300 stipend and 20 recertification points per week. Though not required, fellows are encouraged to participate in both weeks.
