The Ohio Valley Education Cooperative (OVEC) has launched a new cohort of Teach Tech Kentucky, a program designed to help teachers in grades 3-12 integrate computational thinking and computer science into their classrooms.

The program helps teachers learn concepts of computational thinking and computer science in online, self-paced micro-credentials. The goal of this program is to also help students build problem-solving skills and foundational skills for America’s highest-wage occupation.

Teachers can earn a $4,050 stipend through the program or apply that money and work to Bloomboard’s rank change program and achieve rank change at no additional cost. Teachers may earn a $3,000 stipend if they complete the abbreviated pathway that includes less content.
