Past Event or Opportunity
This opportunity has concluded. This page’s content may be out-of-date.
|Today’s students are growing up surrounded by digital tools, media, and realities. Both teachers and students need to learn new ways to map and understand their world.
Maps have the power to pique that interest while also building students’ deeper understanding about their region, its history, its demographics, and the challenges and possibilities for future connection across Pittsburgh. In this professional development workshop, educators will get an introduction to a vast array of free resources available digitally from the Heinz History Center, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and the CREATE Lab at CMU. This training, which includes ample time for interaction, including building lessons and sharing with others, is targeted to teachers in grades 6 through 12. Attendees should bring a laptop if they have one.
This workshop will provide 3 ACT 48 credit hours for teachers and free parking.
The first 15 registrants will receive a $50 gift card to Target to use at their discretion. Don’t delay!
