Earlier this year we announced our various professional development programs, following the move into our new manufacturing and office headquarters in Waltham, MA. Since then, educators and program coordinators from near and far have come to learn how to integrate technology into the early education curriculum.
We took a great video during our latest full-day training session to give you an inside look at the trainings and what its like for teachers getting hands-on with KIBO. Check it out here:
KinderLab Robotics’ professional development program provides an in-depth understanding of how to use the KIBO robot kit in a developmentally-appropriate way with young children and how to integrate the different teaching materials into your existing curriculum.
Our next session will be a two-day training at our Waltham, MA headquarters on June 13th and 14th. For more information or to register, please go to: http://kinderlabrobotics.com/event/two-day-training/.
Can’t make it to Massachusetts? Don’t worry. We have a range of virtual and travel training opportunities available as well. Browse the options here: http://kinderlabrobotics.com/professional-development/.
Technology and innovation is increasingly important in education. Our world is increasingly immersed in, and controlled by technology, and children need to understand what it is and how it works – and there are significant benefits to them doing so at a young age.
Despite the immense need and opportunity, the curriculum is slow to change. We work with teachers and educators that have gained funding for tech in their classrooms in order to introduce KIBO, but knowing there are so many more educators that want to secure funding, we wanted to share some of the insights into successes of our education partners.
There are a number of different ways to raise funds, including:
We’re passionate about bringing STEAM education to students of all ages and ensure educators have the right tools to do so. If you’d like to take the first step towards getting KIBO in your classrooms, get in touch today – we’re happy to help.
Got any advice to fellow educators or teachers on how to best secure funds? Please share them with our community!
