Teach Wonder Professional Learning Program

 Wonder Workshop

 

According to the Bureau of Labor & Statistics, in 2018 the U.S. is expected to produce only 29% of the required number of graduates to fill the 1.4 million U.S. computer specialty job openings that are forecast. Future jobs outside of computer science are also going to require computational and problem-solving skills that are developed when kids learn to code.

That’s why Illinois Computing Educators is excited to partner with Wonder Workshop to bring the Teach Wonder Professional Learning Program to our members at a deep discount. Save $325-$350 when you register for the Teach Wonder program using the discount code provided through our organization.

Teach Wonder supports teachers starting to weave coding into their classrooms by providing an introduction to computer science and best practices for how to use robotics to bring coding to life. The scope and sequence of the courses are designed to instill confidence in teachers of all coding levels and to build the knowledge and skills needed to bring state-of-the-art coding and robotics experiences into every classroom. 

We've chosen to partner with Wonder Workshop because they are uniquely positioned to provide this resource to educators. Their team of experienced educators and instructional design specialists have also developed a K-5 Learn to Code Curriculum and an Applied Robotics Curriculum for more advanced students. In addition, they provide an extensive library of cross-curricular lesson plans that address topics from science to storytelling.

Plus, teachers in Illinois will be able to apply the course towards twelve (12) PDHs. Once you receive your certificate of completion from Teach Wonder, simply fill out our TEACH WONDER PDH Request Form and upload your certificate. We will get back to your with your PDHs.
