EMPowered by KCI 2019
EMPowered by KCI is a professional learning program for fourth and fifth grade math teachers.

This program is offered by the Krause Center for Innovation at Foothill College.

Program Description - http://bit.ly/empoweredkci

The EMPowered by KCI program is a professional learning program for fourth and fifth grade teachers, who teach in California. Teachers explore the eight mathematical practices while also learning how to use computer and web-based technologies to support teaching and learning. After the summer institute, the learning and professional development continues in the academic year program with four EMPowered follow-up sessions designed to help you implement instructional changes, discuss real experiences, develop best practices, build a professional learning community, and address additional math content and technology topics.

We begin in the spring with a one-day orientation (May 18, 2019) to set-up the course expectations and build upon the educational technology platforms used during the program. The summer intensive begins with six face-to-face meetings . There is also a required 24 hours of additional online coursework over the summer. Two additional units (your choice of FASTtech courses) and the four follow-up days (usually a Saturday in October, November, February, and March) wrap up the program.

Participant Requirements

• Redesign math lessons or a unit of study during the summer institute that you will then subsequently teach in the Fall quarter.
• Participate in four academic year follow-up sessions (usually one Saturday in October, November, February, and March)
• Sign up and complete two additional units of FastTECH (LINC) classes during Summer 2019, Fall 2019, and/or Winter 2020 quarters.
• Support from school principal who is required to complete an online support form available at: bit.ly/empowered19pal
• Agree to take the Math Teaching survey before and after the summer institute and again at the end of the program.
• Create an e-portfolio of work that documents teaching practice and student outcomes that the EMPowered team will use to help us determine if the program’s goals have been met.
