New STEM and Technology Program Added to NCCAT Schedule

A March NCCAT program offering will allow teachers to explore various types of technology and tools that can be incorporated into these existing lessons to make them even better.

CULLOWHEE—The North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching has added “Technology Tools To Enhance STEM” to the list of offerings at the Cullowhee campus.

The program, with course number 14359, will be held March 27–30  at NCCAT, a nationally recognized leader in professional development.

The study of STEM—science, technology, engineering, and math—stimulates children to think critically and problem solve. STEM skills are crucial to building workforce readiness. Purposeful integration of tools found in the workplace can make STEM learning more authentic and relevant.

In this program teachers will explore various types of technology and tools that can be incorporated into these existing lessons to make them even better. Maximize classroom time by integrating technologies that can make data collection and analysis easier. Experience lessons that give students a desire to ask questions and engineer solutions. Various technologies will be explored including Vernier sensors, coding software, design software, Cubelets, Spheros, web 2.0 resources, Makey Makeys, and more. Join us as we make messes, break things, fix things, and create minds-on STEM learning environments.

Other March programming includes opportunities for topics such as integrating the arts in the elementary classroom, equipping your classroom for reading success, teaching English I, digital citizenship and literacy instruction for students with special needs.
