An Interdisciplinary Service Learning Project for Technology Education in the Dominican Republic

Tuesday, September 30 | 2:30PM–3:30PM | West Hall A3-4
Session Type: Professional Development
There is a growing need for technology education in underprivileged countries. In this session, we will present an interdisciplinary service-learning project between computer science and Spanish college students who collaboratively developed and implemented a technology-education program at a summer camp in the Dominican Republic using the SOLE model.

OUTCOMES: Get concrete ideas for interdisciplinary, applied service-learning courses and projects * Understand the SOLE model in the applied context of a collaborative service-learning project * Learn about a bilingual technology curriculum that can be used for introducing K–12 students to basic concepts of technology and programming
