TeamRED Workshop Series

TeamRED Workshop Series Lead Sponsor

Although educational technology best practices have a significant positive impact, they are not always widely and consistently applied. According to the national ProjectRED study, 99 out of 100 schools fall short of a successful technology implementation. Failure to implement technology effectively inhibits a school district’s ability to engage students in STEM. With employment in STEM jobs in our country expected to grow to more than 9 million by 2022, it’s critically important that we are preparing San Diego students to pursue these fields, particularly female and minority students. In order for San Diego to remain a leader in the STEM economy, it’s critical that we provide support to educators on effective technology implementation.

About TeamRED Workshop Series

In 2017, the Classroom of the Future Foundation (CFF) will host eight in-depth workshops for educators from across San Diego County to instruct them on how to effectively use technology to teach STEM to students. Each workshop focuses on 1 of 9 key technology implementation factors for success, which increase student learning outcomes.

The target audience for the workshops will vary based on the topic, but include Superintendents, top district administrators, principals, and STEM teachers. All K-12 educators are welcome to participate. These workshops are free of charge. 

Each workshop will include a presentation on the material, expert guest speakers, collaborative peer-to-peer learning discussions, and practice demonstrations around adopting this material in the STEM classroom. 

Facilitated by Dr. Katie Martin 

CFF will partner with Dr. Katie Martin from the University of San Diego’s Institute for Entrepreneurship in Education (IEE) to facilitate these workshops. Katie Martin, PhD, is the Director of Professional Learning at IEE. She teaches graduate-level courses in the School of Leadership and Education Sciences and works with teachers and administrators in diverse K-12 schools. Through partnerships with local and national school districts, she has helped develop systems that facilitate personalized professional learning for educators. Katie works with leaders to create a culture of learning and innovation to ensure all students are equipped with knowledge and skills to be successful today and in their future.

About ProjectREDProject-RED-300x98

The TeamRED Workshop Series utilizes the nationally recognized Project RED approach, which is focused on properly implemented education technology and continuous access to a computing device for each student.

In 2010, Project RED conducted the first large-scale national study of 1000 schools to identify and prioritize over 100 factors that make some U.S. K-12 technology implementations perform dramatically better than others. This led to the Technology Factor report and a set of tools including the 1500 line item RED Design Gantt chart. These resources outline the steps a district must take to ensure success.

Thank You

Special thanks to the Verizon Foundation and SDG&E for their support of the TeamRED Workshop Series, and for their committment to educator professional development, as well as STEM engagement in San Diego public school classrooms.
