WeThinkBig’s Taste of Tech series introduces educators to new and exciting educational techniques, technologies and student offerings; engaging the business community as partners in professional development
In partnership with the Madison Public Library, Camp MAD Media is a hands-on digital media camp for Madison-area educators. Educators join volunteer instructors and community partners for six sessions to expand their digital literacy and test out new methods for student learning and engagement!
Code Parties are designed to introduce educators to Hour of Code and similar free and low cost resources, and lead them in an explorations of code, classroom applications, tips and ideas in a social setting with fellow educators and local tech experts.
WeThinkBig sponsors Hour of Code Preview events for educators throughout greater Dane County in preparation for National Hour of Code and Computer Science Education Week (December 5-11, 2016) and the new Wisconsin Code Week (May 15-21, 2017).
In pop-up settings throughout town, educators will meet tech professionals, fellow educators and will explore code, share classroom tips and ideas in fun social settings.
Looking to meet and ‘test drive’ new educational programs? Explore educational apps, hardware and new technologies at 10 staffed, hands-on stations. Educators, entrepreneurs and business leaders will meet, ask questions, learn about each other, explore new teaching methods and find the best fit for their student needs.
This event follows on the heels of the successful “EdTech Sampler Business Mixer” where educators, entrepreneurs and business leaders mingled and explored educator needs and locally-grown edtech solutions.
