The Cornell Tech Teacher in Residence Program – in Action!

Teacher professional development and skills enhancement have emerged as key tenets of SFE’s Computational Thinking investments. One relationship that has been central to building that position has been our ongoing collaboration with Cornell Tech on their Teacher in Residence (TIR) program, which has helped teachers — no matter their level of expertise in computer science — to incorporate coding and computational thinking principles into their curriculum. The thinking behind the TIR program recognizes that ongoing support and professional development are the keys to helping teachers make progress in the classroom, and their embedded coaching model provides exactly the type of guidance they need to effectively make coding a cornerstone for learning of all kinds.
