This webinar introduces upcoming opportunities to be part of the Teaching the Skills that Matter (TSTM) EdTech Maker Space initiative.
Starting in June 2022, the EdTech Center at World Education will be running a series of seven EdTech Maker Space projects. The goal of the projects is to offer service learning experiences for adult education teachers who want to collaborate to create digital open education resources. Each 6-week online project offers professional development on digital resource curation or creation and evaluation.
These projects will focus on the Teaching the Skills that Matter topic areas – Digital Literacy, Financial Literacy, Health Literacy, Workforce Preparation, and Civics Education.
Over the course of the year, the projects will evolve from 1) curating quality resources to 2) generating activities that incorporate skills such as problem solving and critical thinking to 3) building reusable TSTM-aligned lessons using SkillBlox. Best of all, the resources generated will be added to the all-new SkillBlox to make it easier for teachers to find, organize, and share resources that support TSTM instruction.
