E4Tech: Teacher Professional Development

E4Tech: Teacher Professional Development

E4Tech is an innovative professional development (PD) model and curriculum focused on the integration of computer science and computational thinking into mathematics for grades 3-4 and 5-6. Lessons are designed to emphasize mathematics and science content through a computer science focused curriculum in three innovative modules: Robotics, Programming and Circuits & Computing. The E4Tech curriculum aligns to learning standards in mathematics and national K-12 computer science standards. The structure of the E4Tech PD model illustrates ESSA Level II Moderate Evidence and ESSA Level IIIi Promising Evidence. TECH CORPS collaborates with the Teaching & Learning Collaborative on the design and implementation of the program.
