In partnership with NYC DOE, CUNY Teacher Education is providing NYCDOE teachers and permanent paraprofessionals with an opportunity to participate in a tuition-free 6-credit sequence of courses to develop their technical, pedagogical, and content knowledge in computing education. NYC DOE Teachers and permanent paraprofessionals who complete the courses may also receive a micro-credential. These 2 courses are appropriate for NYC DOE teachers and permanent paraprofessionals of Grades K-12 and can be taken in any order.


At LaGuardia Community College, we are offering Computing Fundamentals (MAC100), and Introduction to Education Technology (ELE150) for this 6-credit sequence. Our Spring 2024 session begins March 1, 2024 and ends June 13, 2024. Teachers may apply for one or more of these courses until February 26, 2024.

LaGuardia’s Education Faculty Involved In Cutting Edge Technology Integration (CUNY CITE 2023)

Professors Caterina Almendral, Angela Cornelius, Monika Ekiert, Leigh Garrison-Fletcher, Michele de Goeas-Malone, Givanni Ildefonso, Bede McCormack and Maria Savva have joined a 14-million-dollar, four-year initiative that aims to support teacher educators in infusing computational thinking and computer literacy into their programs. Funded by Google, Gotham Gives, the New York City Department of Education and the Robin Hood Learning Technology Fund, the initiative includes adapting existing lessons and developing instructional units and courses for pre-service teachers, with a focus on equitable and culturally responsive computing education.

After completing intensive professional development centered around computational thinking, computer science and digital literacy through CUNY CITE each of the eight faculty members worked on projects to integrate computational thinking into coursework, in alignment with the New York State Computer Programming and Digital Literacy Standards.
