A big part of media literacy and computer science is having a basic understanding of how digital footprints are created and used.

That’s why, as part of New York City’s Computer Science For All (CS4All) STEM Institute from February 21-23, The LAMP is offering a professional development opportunity called “Using Data, Security and Algorithms in a Connected Classroom.” In this program geared towards high school educators, hands-on activities and exercises will equip teachers with the language, skills and critical concepts needed to teach students how to maintain digital security. They’ll also learn how to critique algorithmic bias, evaluate interpretations and applications of data, and harness information to improve communities. All participating teachers will leave the workshop ready to bring these skills back to their own students.

Following the workshop, The LAMP will offer virtual workshops in the form of bi-weekly webinar sessions, as well as one in-person weekend workshop. Individual 30-minute phone calls will also be arranged with participants.

This program is free for New York City public school teachers (per eligibility rules) and will take place at Stuyvesant High School.
