Overview of Curriculum
Pre-service teachers are the backbone of the I.D.E.A. program. Each pre-service teacher is required to take an Emerging Technologies course with robotics as a unit. This allows our pre-service teachers to understand how to apply critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaboration with robotics in the classroom.
A service learning component in this class also immerses our pre-service teachers in the business world, public school classrooms, workshops and specialty activities with other teachers and students.
"In a effective classroom, students should not only know what they are doing, but show also know how and why", Harry Wong.
