From building tech capacity within legacy organizations to talent retention, S.T.E.M. as a family affair, lack of computers in homes, recidivism reduction, leveraging technology for economic and community development, and more at the Urban Tech Fair.
We are happy to introduce an enhanced online learning platform that makes it faster and easier to personalize learning for every student, as well to discover and use Common Core-aligned video tutorials, academic games, interactive simulations, and more. Now your students have extra motivation to use the high-quality digital learning activities available at Digipreneurship University. As they spend time learning, they will earn *Power* while also seeing how their classmates and friends are doing.
Digipreneurship University acts as an early-adopter of technologies that are marketed in and outside of the classroom. This involves using smart technologies, such as mobile devices (tablets, smart phones), new tools including web-based software like Blackboard, Moodle, Gaggle, and other learning management systems (journals, wikis, video blogs, ‘mash-ups’ to easily import multi-media into courses), clickers, etc. We can assist you in determining the scope, usefulness, and feasibility of adopting these tools for teaching and learning.
Digipreneurship facilitators provide digital literacy tools and career mentoring for youth and adults seeking to connect safely, collaborate purposefully, and communicate both effectively and respectfully via the web. We offer ongoing support for participants using web-based connected learning programs and applications. We devise and implement the digital track from survey to test to web site to social media and offer technical support as needed. Digipreneurs are trained to use best-practice online teaching methods for all levels of engagement regardless of the mode.
