GenYES Ohio Community

The GenYES Ohio Community is a group for educators who facilitate the GenYES program in their schools. Within this community of practice, members can collect, collaborate, share lesson plans, and engage in conversations to support GenYES programs in their school district. This group is designed to support GenYES Ohio educators. The GenYES Ohio program provides an introduction to computer science, coding, and STEM careers, as well as careers in teaching and education. Students learn through action while supporting others and completing projects that demonstrate their learning. The program is flexible and is designed to support school technology integration goals while building the next generation of technology leaders. With the acquisition of the GenYES program, Ohio users should contact support.infohio.org or their ITC for questions and support for GenYES Ohio.

Interested in starting a new program

by Heidi Varansky 3 months, 3 weeks ago

Good Afternoon!

 

We are interested in getting a GenYES program going at our school district and I took a look at all the resources found within this group. Is there some place that the curriculum can be found so that I can share it with our curriculum director so they may get a better understanding of what GenYES is? I found the facilitators guide that talks about it, but can't find specific lessons or the modules that it talks about. Thanks for your help!

Hi Heidi, 
Thank you for your question. I will be adding a folder with some curriculum samples for you to view. At this point all of the curriculum is housed in the TAPs (Technology Assistance Project) platform, which you gain access to when you sign your school up for the GenYES Ohio program. Once you are able to view the curriculum samples, please let me know if you have other questions.

Hi Heidi, 

I wanted to make sure that you saw the Curriculum Samples folder under the Group Resources tab. I hope you find this helpful.
