CUE’s Rock Star Teacher Camps Take on the Common Core

Walnut Creek, Calif., February 27, 2013 – Computer-Using Educators (CUE) Inc. is seeking teachers who dream of classrooms where learning comes alive. If you would like to amp up your skills as an educator, then sign up for one of CUE’s Rock Star Teacher Camps, available in Spring and Summer 2013. The event, now in its 3rd year, has expanded to multiple dates and venues from April to August.

CUE’s Rock Star Teacher Camps are made up of hands-on “make-it, take-it” sessions taught by the award-winning CUE Rock Star Lead Learners, many of whom are Apple Distinguished Educators and Google Certified Teachers. The goal of the camps is to inspire educators who want to take their instruction to the next level through the latest and greatest technological tools, theories, and practical applications. Each camp is kept to a limited number of enrollees — 1:10 Rock Star Staff to participant ratio — and the camps are designed for those with intermediate to advanced technical skills. CUE is offering one Express Camp in Spring 2013 in Paso Robles and one Classic Rock Camp, which adds an exciting “camping” experience aboard the USS Hornet.

“CUE’s Rock Star Teacher Camps really motivate educators by giving them innovative ways of approaching teaching and learning,” said Danny Silva, CUE’s Professional Development Coordinator. “Not only do participants walk away with great ideas for their classrooms, but they also join a larger network of tech-savvy educators. These are the instructors that will be the leaders in their schools and in their districts, and their passion and expertise will engage others in amazing ways.”

With the exception of the Express camp, all camps include a light breakfast, lunch, beverages and a daily ice cream social for each day of camp. Dinner and sleeping accommodations are only included for the special Classic Rock Camp aboard the USS Hornet (see website for exact details). Each morning, campers will participate in “Shred Sessions” where participants get a LIVE DEMO by each presenter. One added feature to this summer’s camps is a focus on how technology integrates into Common Core.
