Foundation / Corporation
Santa Barbara County Education Office (SBCEO) Teachers Network
Grants to Santa Barbara County, California public school teachers working in grades PreK-12 to share a personally developed education approach to a team of peer teachers. These grants are intended to provide financial support to teachers who have developed effective and successful instructional strategies and who are able and willing to teach their strategies to other "teams" of teachers.
Special consideration will be given to strategies involving the Common Core State Standards.
The grant consists of two components: the Team Coach and Team Members. The Team Coach is a teacher who has personally developed an original, successful instructional strategy and is willing to share the strategy with a team of teacher peers. Team Members are teachers who wish to learn a new instructional strategy by observing and collaborating with a Team Coach.
Teams will meet for a minimum of three, one-hour sessions over a period of several months. Meetings are scheduled by the Team Coach (i.e., the grantee teacher). Team Coaches will work to coordinate times and locations of meetings that best suits their individual team’s needs.
Instructional Strategy Robotics Team Member Description:
SBCEO is excited to target one Team Instructional Strategy Grant focused on robotics and coding, termed the Robotics Instructional Strategy Team Grant (RISTG) program.
For the RISTG the Foundation is looking for creativity and innovation uses of robotics applications integrated with curriculum. One example might be an elementary teacher teaching their students about shapes. They then might want to teach the kids to program the robots to trace around the shape of a triangle. This teaches the student about the shape (current standards), as well as programming. Another example for the secondary classroom might be a math teacher teaching their students about if-then statements, demonstrating the use of if-then statements in programming as well as in the math class. These are just two examples of building robotics use around current curriculum.
