Skills21 is offering a PD on personalized learning and Capstone.  The program is supported by an NSF grant and focuses on STEM and entrepreneurship.


Personalized learning and senior year Capstone experiences are uniquely suited to work together to achieve important STEM learning outcomes for students.  If you currently have, or are considering adding, a Capstone course to your high school curriculum, you will benefit from this two day professional development session from the learning specialists at EdAdvance‚Äôs Skills21.  Skills21 has a National Science Foundation supported Capstone course which can serve as a model for any district that wants to apply its lessons learned.  The STEMStarter Capstone program focuses on promoting entrepreneurial traits in students and increasing STEM career interests.

Day 1 (Tuesday, March 13, 2018) will be focused on professional development that will allow teachers and administrators the opportunity to explore the Skills21 approach to personalized learning, challenge based lesson design, and the Skills21 Capstone curriculum.  Day 1 will be held at the Chrysalis Center in Hartford from 8:30-2:30.

Day 2 (Friday, May 18, 2018)  of the workshop will give participants an opportunity to interact with students that are currently enrolled in this course during the 2017-2018 school year and then actually be a judge for these same projects as part of the 2018 Student Innovation Expo Fest. This judging experience will also provide an opportunity to interact with Trackpad, our customized platform designed to facilitate the judging and assessment of Capstone projects.  Day 2 will be held at Expo Fest at the Toyota Presents Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, CT from 12:00-4:00.
