Technology Coach (DEADLINE is January 5th @ 6pm CT) 

In your role, you will be one of three architects in developing and executing our tech-focused, project-based curriculum across three buckets (3D Printing, Digital Media, Game Development). You will support both sides of our technology model in the following ways daily:

Project-Based Learning: You will teach and co-curate curriculum for multiple sections of intensive 6-12 week sessions where students spend 45 minutes a day tackling a problem through the lens of learning a major tech skill (Coding, 3D Printing, Digital Media, Game Development).

Consultative Program Support: You will support multiple sections of daily consultation on our online platform where you will assist students, push their thinking, and design projects and modifications for Front End Web Development or Full Stack JavaScript/Python.

Your team will establish a school-wide vision for grades 9-10 and build the curriculum to bring that vision to a reality.

Above all, you will help us get students to do adult work sooner. It won’t be easy, but we hope you’ll do it anyway.
