9:00 am – 10:00 am “Technology Skills & Career Pathways to Move Forward in a Post-Covid World”

Overview: As we begin this new academic year, there is a lot unknown about how the world will transform after we get the novel coronavirus under control, but it is extremely unlikely that things will just go back to exactly the way they were before. Career paths are likely to change, and with it, the technology skills companies will require for almost every workplace. Let’s connect and retool our course to reflect the job skills that are likely to be in high demand in a post-coronavirus world. The Fourth Industrial Revolution we are experiencing today builds upon rapidly evolving and disruptive advances in technology: the Internet of Things, the Industrial Internet, robotic process automation, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, virtual reality, and remote flexible work schedules. The challenge is determining how we, as educators, can best mentor the next generation of students for a future that is still evolving.

10:10 am – 11:00 am “The Role of the Student Creator – Transformative Learning”
***Warning: This workshop is for instructors who can handle extreme excitement and engagement.Overview: So, when we say transformative learning powered by technology, we are talking about authentic, project-based learning, where students have agency, ownership, and commitment to a relevant goal. See free activities that allow students to take on the role of creator, problem solver, and learner-teacher working alongside peers and instructors to accomplish something bigger than themselves. Engage. Inspire. Assess. Technology can serve as an extension of the student’s thinking — a place to explore ideas, research questions, test hypotheses, compose thoughts, and come to conclusions – in other words, to learn! We will experience tons of hands-on apps and activities!

Overview: The Michigan Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (MICE) was developed to progressively address Cybersecurity education in Michigan. MICE has expanded to include both the Cybersecurity and Computer Science curriculum by provided interested institutions with curriculum resources and training access to individuals who have various experiences, from a fully developed program to those in the initial stages of development.

MICE consists of two main focuses:
1.Teacher Training – The MICE team has designed a train the trainer (teacher) model that focuses on standard alignments, curriculum options, competitions, activity resources, and best practices. Whether a beginner to the curriculum or an experienced veteran, the MICE team has an option for you.

2.Student Training and Curriculum – The MICE team has built a custom learning management system (LMS) that is scalable from an individual to hundreds of students. The main focus of the LMS is to decrease the development workload on educators while increasing the curriculum opportunities for students. The curriculum focuses on Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Certification Test (Microsoft MOS, TestOut, CompTIA, ECCouncil) preparation, and employability skills.
