Technology is moving apace; indeed it’s accelerating. Increasingly, prospective employers of high school and university graduates ask for new types of “literacy” and problem solving – paramount among these computer literacy. This global professional development opportunity focuses on coding, gaming & robotics – CGR. Educators who take part will acquire the perspectives necessary to leverage CGR for ideal student outcomes. This trip will position you to encourage your students’ natural interest in coding, gaming & robotics. You will use your new knowledge to support your students’ use of these tools. Embedding CGR in your curriculum will catalyze your students’ critical thinking – and their access to high-quality university experiences & job prospects as young professionals.
