The MN Coding in the Classroom Leadership Cohort is an initiative of Code Savvy and a part of its educator trainings and workshops.
Twenty-five elementary, middle and high school school educators from across Minnesota will be chosen to participate in the Cohort for the 2017-18 school year. The Cohort will meet monthly from August, 2017-May, 2018, both in-person and online. Most Cohort meetings will take place evenings and weekends, and a travel stipend will be available to educators who live more than 50 miles outside of the Twin Cities.
In May, 2018, Cohort members will facilitate a statewide coding education event, the MN Coding in the Classroom Summit, which will take place on a weekday. We are asking schools to cover the sub cost (as needed) for Cohort members to attend that day.
An important piece of Cohort participation is the development and implementation of coding resources that align to Minnesota academic standards. Additionally, all Cohort members are asked to develop and share professional development about coding in the classroom with at least 10 other educators. We are asking that Cohort members have the opportunity to implement integrated coding resources with students at their schools and share their professional development session with educators within their schools or districts.
