The Cape Cod Community Media Center is one of six organizations chosen to participate in this pilot program with the Cape Cod Regional STEM network!
The Media Center will look to the Teacher in Resident for help developing a digital storytelling program that will convey to middle and high school students the power of video storytelling in today’s media landscape and classrooms. The Teacher in Residence will learn about the components of TV/Film production from script and storyboard to location and post-production. The Center looks forward to feedback on their current youth programming. The ideal candidate will have experience building media, communications, or creative arts into the curriculum.
Teachers selected for the program will spend two weeks, July 18–22 and July 25–29 (weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with a break over the weekend) at one program partner site. During that time, teachers will gain new insights on STEM in the contexts of their residencies—in projects relating to the Cape’s amazing resources: our ocean, our historic places, or our emerging tech fields. They will also collaborate with experts and museum staff on approaches to better engaging young people in STEM beyond the classroom.
Participating organizations look forward to the opportunity to gain a teacher’s perspective on how young people at different stages of development learn. The Teacher-in-Residence experience is designed to be a creative exchange with the goal of better engaging students in STEM outside the classroom and integrating that learning back at school. After the summer residencies end, additional funding to support a field trip or other related student experiences will be available during the school year ahead. – See more at: Cape Cod STEM Regional Network
