Knowledge iTrust uses technology to help educators engage their students and to support teachers’ professional development.

Below is a partial list of our programs and projects.

Maker Kids

Maker Kids is an offline and online program of teacher professional development and hands on invention whereby students engage in hands on design, make and play activities correlated to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum.  Students make model cars and plans with LEDs and motors, robots, hydroponics and more and post about their activities online.

Data Collection and Analysis Through Technology (DCAT)

Learning About Garden Aphids

DCAT supports urban children as catalysts for change – through the integration of technology with deep and meaningful explorations into the science of environmental sustainability, greening and healthcare. Through active, hands-on education, students engage in deep explorations of science, technology engineering and math (STEM), while at the same time, sensitize to new ways of living in their communities and on this planet. Knowledge iTrust is supporting teachers and students in six schools in the Bronx, New York through a multi-year New York State Education Department Learning Technology Grant to delve into STEM in  new, unique and exciting ways.

Technology Integration in Instruction Through Professional Development (TIIPD)

The consortium consists of six schools in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan Boroughs.  The program employs an active learning approach to the support of students literacy practices and has, among a variety of activities, engaged students in debate at the United Nations, the production of Vodcasts and blogging on various subjects.

STEMGarden

STEMGarden is a Knowledge iTrust networking group, advancing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in k-12 schools and communities for local and global sustainability. The goal of this networking group is to create a resource for educators and learners in New York City, across the United States, and around the globe to be inspired to learn more in the STEM fields and to use their knowledge to develop new ideas, businesses and economies for their communities – ones that are sustainable, ethical and uplifiting.
