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.
By the end of the course, teachers will have created their own web applications in the browser with all of the tools covered and have a thorough understanding of the process of web development and how to operate our introductory coding curriculum. They will also learn troubleshooting techniques, debugging, and problem-solving techniques and how to support students as they face these challenges.
This intermediate course is perfect for teachers who have a foundation of teaching introductory coding classes. We will guide teachers in taking their programs to the next level. Teachers will learn how to work with open data sources, how to pull in data using APIs, and how to manipulate data in a web application.
Teachers will also learn an introduction to how full-stack web development works. At the end of this course, teachers will be able to distinguish the difference between client-side and server-side development. We will also dive into how to build a project-based curriculum that is workforce focused.
