Ms. Akaran from Anchorage AK is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
I need to attend a 5 day training that will give me the opportunity to learn about and teach computer science and makers activities in my classroom.
My class consists of 23 kindergarteners. My students live in a low-income neighborhood with some parents working multiple jobs to keep food on the table and clothes on their backs. My school serves 100% free breakfast and lunch to all students.
My students are energetic, eager to learn, and highly motivated with technology and hands-on activities.
My students live in a neighborhood that was named the most diverse neighborhood in the United States. Their families come from all over the world with different learning styles, values, and languages. In my class, we have at least 7 different ethnicities with 30% of our students working on improving their English language.
The 5 day Maker Educator Collective Tier 1 Bootcamp at the Pathfinders Summer Institute will give me the chance to learn about and access more affordable low and high-tech materials and equipment for my students.
I will learn engaging and hands-on ways to connect technology to what we are learning in the classroom.
I will learn to use engineering activities and design lessons that will enhance my students' classroom experiences and education.
I do not have access to Institutes or training like this in Alaska. I will learn how to connect maker education to the core curriculum, assessments, and storytelling. This will be an amazing experience to add to my teacher toolbox.
