To expand our reach helping teachers develop computational literacies — from coding to physical computing and data crunching — we have begun partnering with organizations that provide high quality K-12 curriculum in Computer Science (CS) fields.
Teachers can learn curriculum designed in a partnership between the Computer Science Teachers’ Association (CSTA) and Zulama by EMC School, and earn a graduate credit through St.Kate’s. The course is aligned with student curriculum, and could be taken as part of a more in-depth dive into CS education with additional courses offered online at St.Kate’s.
Together, we can better help students get the knowledge and skills they need to be citizens and creators in this new economy.
Many thanks to the team at Zulama and CSTA for creating this partnership for the greater good!
Contact Dr. Anderson to learn more about how you or your organization can join in this expanding network of organizations committed to building the common good and sharing the power of computational literacies with all.
Through the generosity of alumna Mildred Speranza, St. Kate’s will offer a $200 per credit stipend (off of $475) to a Catholic school teacher completing the Master of Arts in Education, Curriculum and Instruction or our New Technology Integration program.
Mildred Speranza graduated from St. Kate’s in 1939 with a degree in French and went on to receive law degrees from the University of Minnesota and William Mitchell. She was President of Produce Exchange Bank from 1960-1980. This family bank helped Italian immigrants in the early 20th century secure funding to buy homes and start businesses in Minnesota. She was one of the first women bank presidents. She attributed her own success, in part, to the strong education she received in Catholic schools. One arm of her generous and ongoing legacy of community building is to support teachers who work in Catholic settings.
