GenCyber Teacher Camp at COD
2017 COD Gencyber Camps have completed.
We hope to offer these camps again in 2018. If you'd like us to contact you when we have more information, please let us know!
What are COD GenCyber Teacher Camps?
This camp targeted middle and high school teachers who are passionate about providing students with the tools they need to be safe and responsible online. COD faculty from CIT and HSTI guided teachers through hands-on activities using current technologies, introduced the concept of digital citizenship and presented online safety information to take back to the classrooms.
Based upon grant criteria and a lottery process, 16 middle school teachers and 16 high school teachers were selected for participation in the camp.
Attendees were compensated $600 to attend the five (5) days of camp and for ongoing curriculum development. In addition, teachers returned to campus to deliver one (1) unit of a student camp. Attendees received three (3) Raspberry Pis for their classroom and access to all of the curriculum that was developed by teams at the camp. Light continental breakfast, lunch and snacks were provided daily.
These camps were generously funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation and National Security Agency and is offered at no cost to participants.
