Technology focused after school enrichment programs are geared towards kids mastering the key skills and competencies of technology like computational thinking, design thinking, problem solving, and communication skills in an engaging, fun and team oriented environment.

A wise 6 year old once said “Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.” (Disney Baby) In case you might not be able (or want!) to share your French fries, we came up with a few creative digital ways that you can show you care.
As we have seen around the world in the last few years technology is not only ubiquitous, but more powerful than ever. A power at the hands of everyone. From a young age, then, we want to equip students not only with the technical skills to use tools but also the moral compass to use them for good. We call this teaching students to CARE – to be curious, adaptable, resilient and empathetic to the world around them.
Conferences are a great way to learn about the latest trends in edtech, connect with like-minded educators and discover ideas you can quickly implement in your classroom. We’ve selected three upcoming conferences you should consider attending.
