January 15, 2020: Welcome Webinar
In our Welcome Webinar on January 15, you’ll learn about the MIT pK-12 Network, a program to engage, educate, and inspire alumni and friends to become ambassadors for pK-12 programs at MIT. Learn about MIT’s curriculum, tools, and educator resources and how you can use, adapt, and share them in your local community.
Hear from Dr. Lana Cook, Leadership Giving and Strategic Initiatives Officer at MIT Open Learning on the array of opportunities in pK-12 at MIT and how to get involved as a parent, educator, volunteer or mentor.
Hear from Dr. Claudia Urrea (MIT PhD ’07), senior associate director, pK-12 @ J-WEL, Joe Diaz (MIT ’10), pK-12 Action Group program coordinator, and Kirky Delong, assistant director, special projects, about MIT Full STEAM Ahead, a new resource site for teachers and learners launched in response to Covid-19. The site is an MIT community effort to support online K-12 learning.
The conversation will highlight the types of resources available on the site, how they reflect MIT’s unique approach to hands-on learning, and ways to use and help share Full STEAM Ahead in your community. There will also be time for your questions on supporting K-12 learning.
What is the pK-12 Network?
We are looking for passionate MIT alumni and friends looking to spread the word of the array of pre K-12 educational resources available across MIT.
Through our webinar series, we share the latest K-12 curriculum, pedagogies and tools out of MIT with MIT alumni and friends to further use, adapt and share in their local communities. We will also gather alumni and friends in person through events on campus, alumni clubs, and other opportunities.
Do I need to be a teacher to participate? Do I need to be a MIT alumni?
No, we welcome all types of educators, parents, teachers, administrators, coaches, mentors and community members who are interested in making a change in pK-12 education and in the futures of young people in their local communities and across the world.
