Session 2 | Telehealth and Education: Addressing the Needs of the Whole Child
More than 50% of students of students miss one or more school days per year to due injury or illness. Through the use of Telemedicine, students are afforded real time access to health care providers to diagnose and treat a number of medical issues, including both acute and chronic illnesses, as well as behavioral and mental health conditions. By offering these services within your district, you not only provide a benefit to teachers and students, but also reduce disparities in access to health care by addressing equity issues outside of the classroom. Learn how to partner with Howard Medical and your local health care provider to keep students healthy and in class.

Session 3 | Coding and STEAM… It Starts with YOU!
As computer science instruction grows, it’s important for math, science, English and social studies teachers to encourage computational thinking and coding skills into their instruction to strengthen their existing curriculum and to build bridges for those skills. Using Micro:bits and GiggleBots, participants will be active participants in this session as we explore strategies to incorporate computer science concepts and activities into core content areas in classrooms and school districts.
