Help students gain the skills they need to understand, use, and create technology.
To be full participants in today's society, middle and high school students need to use, assess, and work with technology. If you are an aspiring or current teacher who does not need a Master's degree but would like to enhance or learn computer science skills and teach middle or high school students, this program will give you the tools and skills to teach all students to become digitally literate.
The program covers principles of computer science, digital computing, and programming. It prepares you to teach students to use digital tools for research and collaboration. To become familiar with systems and to use computational thinking. And to prepare for computer science and other innovative jobs of the future. Foster student curiosity and mastery through hands-on experiences such as coding, robotics, and gaming. Help them to learn to use high- and low-tech tools to make creative ideas tangible.
By studying here, you'll work with faculty to co-create practical curriculum ideas and new teaching strategies, put them to use through a student teaching experience, and receive actionable feedback. We're also located in Cambridge, where technology thrives.
