A partnership with Stony Brook University our Regional Economic Development Council and Industry offers teachers a chance to implement and be coached on high-quality standards-aligned computer science and Digital Fluency standards. Stony Brook professors and the STEPD-UP program directors model lessons and provide professional development on the states’ new computer science and Digital Fluency frameworks.  All cohort members develop project-based learning lessons in MOSAIC  addressing the NYS K-12 Computer Science and Digital Fluency Learning Standards.

VEX GO Elementary

The STEPD-UP program trains teachers to think like scientists and provides the tools and knowledge to create lessons of emerging relevance that aim to target the next generation of Computer Science and STEAM minded students in the workforce. The VEX Go lessons set the stage for vertically aligning STEAM curriculums.

SEEING IS BELIEVING HITACHI INSPIRE THE NEXT

Through SEM usage we address the needs of at-risk subgroups in the Brentwood Union Free School District (BUFSD) by providing teachers with meaningful professional development geared toward engaging teachers of SWD and ELLs in computer science and STEAM learning.   Through SEM imaging we  creatively and seamlessly implement the Digital Fluency, Technology and NGSS standards. By engaging educators in real-world investigations of the natural world and honing in on issues surrounding technology we are using the SEM  to create global citizens.

Lab Skills and Data Logging

Our SMART NY Grant is built on the U.S. Department of Education tenant “technology infuses classrooms with digital learning tools, such as computers and hand-held devices; expands course offerings, experiences, and learning materials; supports learning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; builds 21st century skills; increases student engagement and motivation; and accelerates learning”.  Coupling this with connect to parks, educators are collecting and analyzing real world data.

LESSON DEVELOPMENT

MOSAIC Instructional Planning is the archive for all lessons developed by educators.  These lessons can be shared across curriculum and grade-level.  We are using Book Creator to showcase project portfolios.
