The NMC, ISTE, and HP Launch the HP Catalyst Academy | The New Media Consortium

The NMC, ISTE, and HP Launch the HP Catalyst Academy | The New Media Consortium | STEM Education Info | Scoop.it
An unprecedented global collaboration designed to accelerate STEMx* education was announced by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE®) and the New Media Consortium (NMC). The 2013 HP Catalyst Summit in São Paulo, attended by more than 120 educators and policy leaders from 15 countries, marks the launch of the HP Catalyst Academy, designed to accelerate STEMx education, transform teaching practices and continue to close the global skills gap. The HP Catalyst Academy extends the work of the HP Catalyst Initiative, which was launched in 2010 to support innovations in STEMx teaching and learning. To date, 56 organizations in 15 countries have received grants from HP to explore how emerging technologies and great teaching can be combined to create powerful STEMx learning experiences for more than 130,000 students around the globe. Beginning in June 2013, the HP Catalyst Academy will offer its first set of online mini-courses, covering a wide range of topics such as digital fabrication, computational thinking, remote labs, game design and social media. The mini-course leaders, known as HP Catalyst Fellows, are working with HP’s education partners, ISTE and the NMC, to develop these innovative online professional learning experiences. Through a grant process, HP Catalyst identified this group of established STEMx trailblazers who have experience and excellent track records in developing and launching large-scale projects that positively impact thousands of teachers and students.
