The time is now for education to catch up with our tech saturated society. Our training covers where to begin with bringing coding into the classroom, how to teach code, how to overcome challenges with teaching code, how to implement coding into curricula, how to teach experiences as well as knowledge, and becoming a mentor, not just a teacher.
We want teachers to feel comfortable being uncomfortable and incorporate new ways of thinking to enhance their classroom learning and curricula for any subject. No need for expensive equipment to begin, we will give teachers a solution that is affordable and sustainable.
The Jr. DevLeague Educator Programs range from Introduction to Web Development to Advanced Game Development and Cyber Security.
We will dive into the challenges faced with teaching code at different grade levels and creating curricula to scale. Most importantly we will be discussing how to empower students with a "can-do" mindset so they can grow to be independent and create their own future.
The Intermediate Web Development course is ideal for Educators who have the foundational knowledge of teaching an introductory coding class. Educators will learn how to work with an Application Programming Interface (API) to extract and manipulate data from open data sources in a web application.
We will dive into client-side and server-side development to gain an introductory level of knowledge on full-stack web development. Educators will have the skills needed to implement a workforce focused, project-based curriculum.
Cybersecurity is quickly becoming the most in-demand and undersupplied skillset in IT. The summer immersive course is designed to teach Educators how to inspire and prepare students for opportunities in the field of cybersecurity.
We will explore the depths of cyberspace including security, networking, cryptography, and how to identify cyber attacks. Educators will learn how to operate in a Linux, Windows, and Virtual environment. After successful completion, Educators will have the necessary skills needed to integrate cybersecurity concepts into their classroom.
By the end of the course, Educators will have successfully created their own web applications using modern development tools, and have an in-depth understanding of the web development process. Educators will complete the course with the confidence to create and teach an introductory coding curriculum.
