ARRL 2018 Teachers Institute on Wireless Technology Application Deadline Is May 1:
As part of its educational outreach to schools through the Education and
Technology Program, ARRL will offer three summer sessions of the 2018
Teachers Institute (TI) on Wireless Technology
http://www.arrl.org/teachers-institute-on-wireless-technology -- an
expenses-paid professional development seminar. The deadline to apply
for this summer's sessions is May 1. Apply
Teachers Institute provides teachers at all grade levels with tools and
strategies to introduce basic electronics, radio science, space
technology, satellite communication, weather science, microcontrollers,
and basic robotics in their classrooms. Wireless technology can be a
useful tool within a context of science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics (STEM) project-based education. The Teachers Institute
curriculum is designed for motivated teachers and other school staff
who want to learn more about wireless technology and bring that
knowledge to their students.
Two TI levels are offered. The introductory TI-1 course will be offered
twice this summer: July 16 - 20 in Dayton, Ohio, with Larry Kendall,
K6NDL, and July 23 - 27 at ARRL Headquarters in Newington, Connecticut,
with Tommy Gober, N5DUX. The TI-1 course is a prerequisite for the
advanced TI-2 course, which will be offered July 9 - 12 at ARRL
Headquarters with Matt Severin, N8MS. TI-2 students must hold an
Amateur Radio license. An Amateur Radio license is not required to take
the introductory workshop.
The TI is only the beginning of a participant's exploration of wireless
technology. The goal of the TI program is to equip educators with
necessary foundational knowledge, and -- through hands-on learning --
inspire them to continue to explore wireless technology, adapting
relevant content into classroom instruction.
Qualified applicants must be active teachers at an elementary, middle,
high school, community college, or university, or be in a leadership or
enrichment instruction role in an after-school program. Teachers
Institute grants cover transportation; accommodations; a modest
per-diem for meals; instructional resources for the electronics,
microcontroller, and robotics segments of the course, and a resource
library of relevant ARRL publications. A refundable $100 enrollment fee
must be submitted with the application.
Graduate credits are available through Fresno Pacific University. These
can be used to satisfy professional growth requirements to maintain
teaching credentials. The class is self-contained, and participants are
expected to complete all requirements during the class time allotted.
Graduate credit forms may then be requested at the end of the Teachers
on the ARRL Education and Technology Program page. Contact
firstname.lastname@example.org ARRL Lifelong Learning and Knowledge Department
Administrator Ally Riedel with any questions.
