We invite P-12 teachers to participate in this one week long face-to-face professional development workshop at the Innovation Studio in the College of Education at Georgia Southern University. The goal of the DML Summer Institute is to prepare educators to design and develop learning experiences using cutting-edge technologies. The technologies will include 3D printing, robotics, electronics, coding, game and app design. Through hands-on experience with these technologies, teachers will explore ways to integrate them into their curricula. Please click the link above for more information and how to register for the workshop.
