As part of the NYC Department of Education’s Innovation Partner Professional Development Program (IPPD) Teach Code would like to invite you to become a Teach Code Python Instructor, Level 1.
In this program, you will learn to code, but more importantly, you will learn how to teach Python coding language by learning to ask questions and seek answers with your peers who are also taking this program. You will learn how to use technology that is available to all of us, for free, to create a collaborative space in your classroom. Most importantly, the Teach Code approach does not focus on any special software to teach the classes, so the skills that you learn in this class and transfer to your students will make them college and career ready.
The TeachCode program is unique because it is designed by former Board of Education Teacher Jessica Ingrassellino, who has a Doctorate in Education with a specialization in Assessment. Additionally, Jessica has spent the past four years writing Python in her work as a test engineer for several tech start-ups throughout the city, and teaches Python to children at Queensborough Community College Teen College Program.
The program includes a face-to-face launch on February 12, 2016, at the Harlem Renaissance Training Center, 426 West 123rd Street, Manhattan, on the 6th floor of the building. There will also be a group celebration. The core of the program is online, with work that you will do on your as a program requirement. You can read more about our program or view the full offerings by logging on to the intranet.
Applications for this and all IPPD programs are due 5 p.m. Friday, January 29th. You can apply at https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2464034/IPPD-Winter-16-Application. You will be notified of your acceptance a week or more before the program launch. There is no cost for these programs.
For questions please, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Teach Code looks forward to working with each of you to share the fun, creativity, and love of code!
Jessica. . . is practical and honest about the challenges in education; but manages to make you feel like you can help solve the world's problems. Any time you can hear Jessica speak or read her work, you should do it.
