The use of digital portfolios allows teachers to better see students as learners, and in turn, helps students see themselves as learners too.

Presenters will demonstrate in-progress student portfolios, discuss the importance of creating student agency, and model the first steps of ongoing portfolio curation.

How this course supports remote learning: This can easily be adapted to fit a remote learning environment.

12. Educators Amplifying Afrofuturism through S.T.E.A.M Media - Blended

Program: NERIC: Model Schools

Dates: 7/20/2020 to 7/31/2020

Starting Soon
This course is a remote learning professional development series. Afrofuturism is the reimagining of a future filled with science, technology, engineering, art, math and media that is liberally experienced through black culture. In contrast to black history, Afrofuturism is a creative expressive process of reclaiming the past, present and future narrative of a black culture not oppressed.

How does Afrofuturism relate to S.T.E.A.M and Media? How can educators use Afrofuturism as a basis for researching and presenting social, emotional and culturally relevant lesson content that is rigorous, rich, engaging and empowering? How can educators use Afrofuturism as a pedagogical lense?

The course will be a blend of online content and live interactive webinars. Participants will be tasked to create a series of basic mixed media (text & image) responses to essential questions related to Afrofuturism and S.TE.A.M Media. These graphic responses will be combined with course resources into a shareable document with the end goal purpose of creating an original collaborative project that demonstrates a network of educators amplifying Afrofuturism in their work.

This course features live webinars (July 20- July 24, 9:00AM-10:00AM) and five hours of online work (due by July 31).

How this course supports remote learning: The content of the course will provide a foundation of information for educators to use when researching and presenting Afrofuturistic content to students. The participants in the course will become a network of educators informed and interested in sharing Afrofuturistic content via remote platforms. The participants will have the option to use online graphic art generators and virtual databases to create their responses to essential questions. The outcome of the course will be a mini publication created by educators remotely and virtually that can be shared across platforms.
