The Innovation in K-8 Mathematics and/or K-12 Computer Science/Coding Professional Learning Grants are designed to support the development and implementation of engaging, technology-enabled learning experiences that lead to an increase in student achievement and success in mathematics, Computer Science, and coding. These grants are focused on improving instruction in the areas of mathematics and computer science/coding through targeted, intentional professional learning and will increase the availability of high quality mathematics instruction and computer science/coding opportunities for students. These professional learning grants will also focus on innovative ways to increase the number and quality of application-based models that incorporate skills in coding and programming into mathematics and science classrooms or which foster application-based, authentic learning opportunities for students.
Effective professional learning targets adult behaviors in order to change and improve instructional practices. Successful professional learning programming should have a direct and positive impact on student outcomes. This grant is designed to provide an initial period of professional learning development and review followed by a year of implementation and monitoring in order to assess the effectiveness of professional learning and to identify successful programs that could be replicated and scaled to maximize their impact on mathematics, Computer Science, and coding instruction throughout the state.
