On Saturday, July 13th, we hosted close to 50 teachers at our EdXpert Workshop powered by Microsoft aimed at providing Miami-Dade County public school K-12 STEM teachers with computer science based professional development training with a focus on Title I schools and those scoring low in Teacher Professional Development. We covered topics ranging from Computational Thinking and Problem Based Learning to demystifying the technology ecosystem. We were joined by some of our partners including Code.org, CS for All teachers, and Xennial Digital.
