Teaching through Technology is a one-week intensive professional development workshop for experienced educators in the design of learning experiences using design and emerging technology including digital fabrication, physical computing, and new approaches from design and the maker movement.
This workshop brings together the teaching practices of experienced teachers with design-driven approaches to the application of technology for teaching and learning. This hands on learning design program helps teachers use new tools to expand and deepen their teaching practice.
Workshop 1: June 23-28
Workshop 2: July 7-11
Workshop 3: July 14-19
Workshop 4: July 21-25
WHAT THE WORKSHOP INCLUDES:
Working sessions in design thinking skills for education from leading design faculty
Collaborative development and prototyping of design + technology approaches to lesson development, including development of a lesson roadmap for the application of new techniques to your teaching practice
Immersion in technologies emerging for the classroom, especially digital fabrication
Classes taught in SVA’s state-of-the-art Visible Future Lab
A field trip to schools, cultural institutions, and fab labs where new applications of technology and learning are making a difference in NYC
A seminar in the innovative teaching practices emerging throughout NYC public schools
Evening enrichment lectures and dinners with leading figures from around NYC in design and education
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
