Innovating Instruction with Technology
The CTSC has published a report evaluating i2 Learning's participation in Boston STEM Week.
Dr. Ellen Meier from the Center for Technology and School Change, along with Rita Sanchez, Romina Peschiera, Leo Barros and Karina Rodriguez, has provided a professional learning series focused on innovative instruction and school change for 29 high schools in Nuevo León, Mexico this Spring 2015.
South by Southwest (SXSW), once a music, interactive and film festival is now a hub of all things innovative. Twitter first became notable at SXSW back in 2007. SXSW since has branched to three other sets of festivals: SXSWedu for education, SXSW Eco for environment and SXSW V2V for startups.
In May 2015, four of the current staff members of CTSC graduated from Teachers College: Leonardo Barros, Sharmin Hakim, Romina Peschiera and Rita Sánchez. We are celebrating this joyous milestone by highlighting their work at CTSC.
In the 2014-2015 academic year, CTSC’s Alex Thomas facilitated project design workshops for 8th grade teachers and supported project implementation at a NYCDOE middle school in Brooklyn. This work was part of the third-year implementation of Center’s NSF-funded Systemic Transformation in Inquiry Learning Environments (STILE) program. One key goal of the STILE program is to prepare teachers as designers of authentic, standards-based learning experiences in and across the Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
