STEM Programs at the San Joaquin County Office of Education provides professional development for teachers, administrators, technology coordinators and others, focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The Office of STEM’s mission is to spark inquiry related to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) and the California Science Frameworks. Districts inside and outside San Joaquin County, community colleges and universities in the region work with the Office of STEM to promote science, technology, engineering and math as core subjects for all grade levels. The office also serves as liaison between the California Department of Education and other national/regional STEM-oriented agencies. Our programs are designed to promote the improvement of STEM education and teacher leadership.
STEM Programs at San Joaquin County Office of Education serves as a regional resource for teachers. Through our partners in education, business and industry, we hope to connect teachers with people that help make curriculum relevant and ensure that students are learning skills that can build toward successful articulation from grade to grade, school to school and beyond.
SJCOE Tech Summit 2019
We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker for the 2019 SJCOE Tech Summit is Travis Allen, the president and founder of the iSchool Initiative, a growing organization devoted to helping schools embrace technology and create a positive culture of lifelong learning.
The iSchool Initiative is also known for providing Escape the Bus to schools across the United States. An escape room on wheels, the bus challenges educators to flex their critical-thinking, communication, collaboration, and creative skills while learning about educational strategies and technology they could put to use in the classroom. Escape the Bus will be available as breakout sessions throughout the day at the Tech Summit. Session space is limited.
Travis Allen is quickly becoming one of the most influential leaders of the emerging digital learning movement. A young visionary promoting technology and, he created a viral YouTube video on revolutionizing education in America through the use of mobile technology while he was still in high school. He founded the iSchool Initiative as a college student and has presented in over 45 states and 11 countries, allowing him to reach an audience of more than 300,000 people.
