The newly launched Early Childhood Technology (ECT) certificate program is designed for educators and practitioners working with young children in pre-kindergarten through second grade in diverse educational settings such as schools, museums, libraries, and daycares. The program will develop students’ knowledge and skills in technology and engineering with a focus on early childhood.
Computer programming is becoming an essential skill in the 21st century. Through developmentally appropriate platforms such as KIBO and ScratchJr, DevTech has created comprehensive coding curricular resources to enable teachers to help young children start learning about programming and develop computational thinking skills.
There is no prior coding experience necessary!
Our lesson plans and classroom activities are designed to support both you and your students! We’ve developed engaging educational content that uses KIBO, ScratchJr, and the Coding as Literacy (CAL) approach using both KIBO and ScratchJr. Additionally, through the David Lear Sulman Fund, we’ve also begun developing a Jewish Curricula Series that integrates ScratchJr coding curricula with Jewish education. Find here a summary of all of our freely-available curricular resources for ScratchJr and for KIBO.
There are different ways to receive funding for materials like KIBO or tablets for ScratchJr. The following is a list of grants for teachers and educators. DevTech is not associated with any of the following organizations, but we want teachers to have a resource that helps them know of opportunities for funding.
