Highlights From The Business Teacher Updates--FALL 2018
The focus for these updates was on innovative ways of teaching Entrepreneurship and Technology! All updates were free, but registration was required.
The following were the updates from Fall 2018
Great appreciation goes to Aligatortek, 8th Light, and 146th Street for sharing their expert developers at the July 30 Structured Group Interview, Coding for Web/Mobile App Development. This small group of experts rendered industry-based topics and subtopics which will be made into a curriculum for Illinois high school CTE teachers.
Thank you to Ahmar Arshi, Sarah Sunday, and Andrew Harris for donating their time and energy to this project! The lively discussion delivered important insights for future curriculum.
In addition to the developer professionals' contributions, several tech-savvy Business Education Instructors from around the state of Illinois participated on the Teacher Steering Committee. With the information gained from the developers, this teacher committee created a number of new lesson titles with learning objectives and suggested "real world" activities for curriculum which will ultimately be published at MYcaert.com for Illinois CTE high school instructors.
