About the course

The ubiquity of digital media has drastically changed the way today’s educators teach and share knowledge. Today’s young learners are also drawn towards newly available digital, interactive ways of learning and creating. This summer, join us to explore new ways of incorporating design and code into your K12 teaching practice. No prior experience with creative technology needed. Everyone is welcome from newcomers to technology masters!

This survey style, distance-learning based curriculum will last for a total of four weeks. During this period, educators will complete four learning modules:

  • Documenting with Video
  • Animation
  • 3D Scanning, Modeling, and Augmented Reality (AR)
  • Creative Coding

Attendees will have roughly one week to finish each specific learning module and complete the hands-on creative assignment along the way. Each attendee will document his/her learning journey through an online blog, receiving feedback from peers and mentors along the way. Instructors will also be available to chat with students to provide help and guidance. At the conclusion of the course, all students will have the opportunity to meet their peers through an online presentation forum, showcase their learning outcome, lesson plans and receive critical feedback from peers and mentors. At the end of the curriculum, students will develop a solid understanding of the fundamentals of digital and software based creation processes, and collectively contribute to a pool of lesson plans that are ready to be implemented in a variety of learning communities.
