The Intelitek STEM and CTE Education Foundation Partners with Girls Who Code

New mid-Atlantic region collaboration designed to spur girls’ participation in coding competitions and coding clubs

GWC-logo_2016-on-navyDERRY, N.H. – Sept. 17, 2018The Intelitek STEM and CTE Education Foundation (ISCEF) is partnering with Girls Who Code, a national nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology and change the image of what a programmer looks like and does. Girls Who Code runs free after-school programs to promote gender equity in the computer science, technology and STEM fields. To further spur girls’ interest and participation in coding, the two organizations will promote one another’s activities in the mid-Atlantic states and have plans to expand their collaboration to other regions.

Through the Girls Who Code Clubs program, girls learn to use computer science to impact their community and join a supportive sisterhood of peers and role models across the United States. Clubs center around a Girls Who Code Project, where Club girls work as a team to design and build a project that solves real-world problems they care about through code (programming). Importantly, Girls Who Code Clubs teach girls much more than computer science: they help unlock potential for creativity, bravery, resilience and purpose as girls learn how to use computer science to impact their community.

The Girls Who Code- ISCEF partnership currently covers those Clubs in New York state, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Virginia and West Virginia. In those states, Girls Who Code will offer members of existing, new and forming Clubs the opportunity to participate in ISCEF’s Cyber Robotics Coding Competitions (CRCC), which are web-based coding competitions that provide students and educators with the opportunity to build coding-robotics skills using a cloud-based simulation platform featuring a virtual, 3D-animated robot.

“We’re so grateful to be working with the Intelitek STEM and CTE Education Foundation in the mid-Atlantic region. We’re bringing our lessons of bravery, sisterhood and coding to the area to show girls that they can change the world with computer science,” said Tarika Barrett, Ph. D., the COO of Girls Who Code.

The first CRCC was held in New Hampshire at the end of 2017 and gave rise to an international phenomenon that has resulted in more than 30,000 students all over the world participating in similar events. Of the competitions based in the United States, more than 32 percent of participants have been female. Beginning in October, up to 11 states across the country and counting will host Cyber Robotics Coding Competitions.

gocoderz.com ■ Retail Price: Home use: $6.25/month (billed annually); classroom subscription: $840; school and unlimited use by quote.

TL_09_18_Final-93

CoderZ by Intelitek is a browser-based coding environment that teaches middle-and high-school students to program both virtual and physical robots. CoderZ puts a virtual robot in front of every student, and they progress through a variety of standards-based “missions” using Java block coding language. CoderZ is compatible with LEGO Mindstorms Education EV3, so student creations can be downloaded and run in real life.

Quality and Effectiveness: CoderZ is a nice solution for students to get started in coding and robotics. Teachers with limited budgets don’t have to purchase physical robots, and the 3D coding environment simulates writing code for a real-life robot that can be tested and debugged as they progress through the different challenges. The programs can be downloaded onto a compatible robot for more real-world problem solving.

TL_09_18_Final-92

CoderZ also has a classroom management component and provides data so teachers can easily assign tasks, track progress, identify students’ needs, and adjust instruction if needed.

CoderZ gives more advanced students the option of moving out of the Java block coding environment to code directly in a text-based editor.

Ease of Use: CoderZ loads quickly and runs smoothly on any browser or platform. The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate for both teachers and students. Users who log in for the first time are greeted with a series of text boxes that direct them through a beginners tutorial to acquaint them with the interface as well as the block coding environment. The accompanying curriculum resources make it easy for teachers to share content with students.

TL_09_18_Final-94

 

Creative Use of Technology: CoderZ’s instructional design and interface make it a good solution for schools that want to introduce coding and robotics to students but find it fiscally challenging to purchase enough robots. The 3D gamified learning environment is realistic and attractive. It also give students feedback and help mechanisms to assist and instruct them if they get stuck. Its flexibility enables more advanced students to explore some of their own programs and gives teachers the ability to differentiate by assigning open-ended assignments.

Suitability for Use in a School Environment: The CoderZ platform will integrate well into any middle- or high-school STEM/coding program. It gives students the opportunity to learn how to code robots without schools having to make large investments in robotics hardware and create complicated labs full of hardware.

TL_09_18_Final-95

The gamified “mission” based lessons are clear and easy to follow, and they progress through the necessary skills from basic to complex. The block-based environment builds on the basic sequences of instructions and moves to more complex functions, variables, and loops.

OVERALL RATING:

CoderZ is a creative, economical, and browser-based solution to get students coding by using robotics as the basis for projects that advance them through more complicated coding tasks.

TOP FEATURES

• Cloud-based platform gives students the opportunity for anytime, anywhere access.
• Classroom management tools enable teachers to track and monitor student progress.
• Intuitive and flexible gamified learning environment with realistic graphics.

New Hampshire Department of Education to Host Second Annual Cyber Robotics Coding Competition

Cyber Robotics Coding Competition

Last year’s inaugural event drew thousands of students statewide and spurred additional national and international competitions in West Virginia, Nevada, Texas, Washington, D.C. and Paraguay 

DERRY, N.H. – Aug. 1, 2018 – The New Hampshire Department of Education and the Intelitek STEM and CTE Education Foundation (ISCEF) will being teaming up again to hold a statewide Cyber Robotics Coding Competition (CRCC) from mid-October to mid-December. Sponsored by Intelitek, and Oracle Academy, the CRCC is an eight-week virtual coding competition that provides students and educators with the opportunity to build STEM related skills using a cloud-based simulation platform featuring a virtual, 3D-animated robot.

New Hampshire was the first state to hold the competition. In doing so, it gave rise to an international phenomenon that has resulted in more than 30,000 students all over the world participating in similar events.

“CRCC is learning as it is meant to be,” said Frank Edelblut, the commissioner of the NH DOE. “Students could not be more engaged. They are not only building coding skills, but creativity and innovative capacity to solve problems. This year, they will be competing with students from around New Hampshire and around the world and will be able to challenge themselves even further. Ido and I share a vision to see a million students participating in this event in the next five years.”

In the first New Hampshire CRCC, held at the end of 2017, more than 2,500 students in middle and high schools throughout the state used CoderZ, a cloud-based coding platform to compete in over 80 different and challenging robotics missions. In addition to winning prizes for inclusiveness, faculty participation and diversity, the top schools competed in a grand finale competition for the best middle school, best high school and a grand prize called the Governor’s Award, which included a trophy and a $2,000 grant (Gallery).

“The NH DOE has an inspiring vision of preparing its students – not just for the current 21st century – but for the 22nd century,” said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. “As part of that goal, they are continually looking for ways to engage students in rigorous, relevant and integrated learning STEM experiences, including computer science. The first competition demonstrated that CRCC is a great way to motivate students and expose them to STEM – kids were even logging in to our software platform from home – and we are delighted to be helping support their vision.”

The NH CRCC grand finale round will take place in the week of December 3rd at one of the state’s universities.

Six Ways to Get Your School on the Education 4.0 Train

EdFutures

This Guest Blog was originally published on Education Weeks Education Futures Channel on June 7, 2018 – See article here

By Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek.

Seeing gaps between what you’re teaching and what your students need to be able to compete effectively in the modern workforce? Here’s how to close them.

We have experienced four industrial revolutions in the last 250 years. These revolutions have completely changed the industrial world, but also many aspects of the community, the practical nature of the workforce, and the way we live in modern times.

In the educational world, the change has not happened as quickly and at Intelitek we have implemented an approach – Education 4.0 – that aligns modern learning with modern industry. Education 4.0 is having a similar, profound impact on how instructors teach and how students learn. Put simply, it defines “what it takes” to cultivate active members of society and employees who can play a valuable role in the new industrial workspace.

The rapid change in industry has caused the misalignment between what industry needs in this respect and the skills students graduate with. The educational path taken in many schools and classrooms today–isn’t always perfect. In fact, there are some clear gaps, as evidenced by the lack of qualified, skilled workers in the current (and emerging) labor pool.

Here are six ways to close those gaps and get your school on the Education 4.0 train today:

  1. Create a tailor-made learning path. Design a personal learning path that suits each student’s strengths and interests. This will allow them to build knowledge based on their individual previous knowledge or experience, and on their acceptance of the new information. Solutions should never force all students to learn the same thing at the same time and at the same pace.
  2. Leverage formative assessments. This will enable educational staff to help students identify their own strengths and also pinpoint their own weaknesses. A formative assessment is focused on helping the student accept and learn the new information and does not classify students based on test results.
  3. Transform teachers into mentors. Teachers must be trained on the fine points of building new curriculum and offering every one of their students a personal journey. They should be expected not to lead, but rather to support learning. For example, teachers must be able to use their own vast knowledge to assist students in a mentoring capacity during their own personal journeys.
  4. Embrace divergence and pluralism. Students are not the same and they are also not expected to be the same. The role of the education system is to help students identify the field in which they are suited and help them to excel at it. When teachers find their areas of aptitude, it gives the students a better chance to serve their society as adults.
  5. Stop equating education with knowledge acquisition. Education–not knowledge transfer–should be every school’s goal. Today’s schools will determine the development of society in the future. And while no one can predict the future, the universal values of doing good, accepting others, and collaborating with them will always be essential. This will hold true even when the graduates of today’s education system take on the societal roles of tomorrow.
  6. Put teachers at the heart of Education 4.0. Contrary to other beliefs, no one really wants to replace teachers with robots. In fact, teachers and mentors should be one and the same, and should shepherd students to success in the work world and in life. Design programs for teacher training, give them pedagogic tools, and provide them with a support structure that improves the relationship between the teacher and the student, enabling the former to interact more effectively. And remember that technology is there to serve teachers, allowing them to be even more effective instructors in the long run.

Intelitek Releases White Paper on Changing Education Systems to Prepare Students for the Demands of Modern Society and the Industrial Workspace

“The Education 4.0 Revolution” white paper explains why education systems need to keep pace with major industrial changes and shares principles for transforming learning

DERRY, N.H. – June 6, 2018 – Historic changes in industry should and must have a direct impact on the way a society builds its education system. That is the main assertion of a new white paper released by Intelitek. Titled “The Education 4.0 Revolution: An analysis of Industry 4.0 and its effect on education,” the paper explains how and why education paradigms must shift in order to align with future careers and jobs. The paper outlines the Education 4.0 approach of Intelitek, which transforms students from passive recipients of information to active participants in a personal learning process.

According to the white paper, the last 250 years have brought forth four industrial revolutions, each sparked by an innovation: (1) the steam engine; (2) the production line; (3) the computer and (4) the internet. “These revolutions have completely changed not just industries but also societal structures, the nature of work, and the way we see living in modern times,” said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. “They should have just as significant an impact on education, and yet the pace of change has been much slower in that field.”

As pointed out in “The Education 4.0 Revolution,” pedagogical change has, to an extent, lagged behind the last two revolutions. The paper states, “Internet technology has allowed students to participate in long distance learning and have access to unlimited sources of information. However, since the teaching and learning approach has not changed, and learning outcomes are still being tested according to the criteria defined in the second industrial revolution, the education system does not adequately benefit from computers and the internet and it remains stuck somewhere in the same paradigm of the requirements of the second industrial revolution.”

The paper goes on to describe the four fundamental principles of Intelitek’s particular Education 4.0 instructional approach:

  • The learning path is tailor made
  • Assessment should be formative
  • Teachers need to be mentors
  • Divergence and pluralism must be prevalent

“With our Education 4.0 approach, students are always guided by the teacher but construct their knowledge actively rather than just mechanically, ingesting knowledge from the teacher as well as other printed and online resources,” said Yerushalmi. “Our approach is inspired by Industry 4.0 and so we have designed it to give teachers the pedagogic tools and support to bring teaching and learning up to par with the demands of the Industry 4.0 society.”

Up to 60 WV Middle Schoolers to Advance to Final Round in Cyber Robotics Coding Competition

Virtual robotics coding event sponsored by NASA IV&V ERC, Oracle Academy, A3L Federal Works, Fairmont State University, CoderZ, and the Intelitek STEM & CTE Education Foundation

DERRY, N.H. – May 15, 2018 – Students from middle schools across West Virginia are gearing up for the final round of their Cyber Robotics Coding Competition (CRCC), a program that provides students and educators with the opportunity to build coding-robotics skills for real or virtual 3D robots. On May 17, those finalists will gather at the Fairmont State University (FSU) campus for a coding faceoff and an awards ceremony. NASA’s Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) Educator Resource Center, FSU, A3L Federal Works and the Intelitek STEM and CTE Education Foundation (ISCEF) partnered to launch this spring version of CRCC in West Virginia.

To date, more than 30,000 students all over the world have participated in CRCC events. The West Virginia event attracted 2,271 students as participants. After completing both the boot camp and the week of code phases – the 15 top schools were selected to compete in the finals.

“The competition takes robotics and leverages it into the coding world – such an important aspect of STEM,” said Todd I. Ensign, Ed.D., the program manager for the NASA IV&V Educator Resource Center and a geoscience lecturer at FSU. Ensign was responsible for the outreach that resulted in the current spring event. “The schools and students who can best strategize, plan and complete the multi-level challenges will be the coding champions.”

Up to four students from each school will compete in the Finals, coding through fifteen missions during the first 90-minute phase and a three-part mission in the subsequent 60-minute second phase. Awards will be presented for performance and student participation ratios.

“Our aim, through these CRCC events is to get educators and students excited about STEM through coding robotics and computer science and lower the apprehension many have regarding coding, robotics and technology in general,” said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. “These events not only recognize schools and teachers investing in STEM but help build collaboration between state education boards and companies specializing in, and supporting, STEM.”

Additional CRCC competitions are in the works for the fall in New Hampshire, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, Nevada and Maryland.
