Connecting Things (IoT) Training

The training will be FREE April 17-19 in Oklahoma City at Dell Service Center 3501 SW 15th Oklahoma City OK 73108. Each participant will need to purchase/bring about $250 worth of supplies. These supplies will be needed during the training (can be reused when teaching the course). 

Bring the following with you to the training:

The IoT Fundamentals curriculum consists of three courses: Connecting Things, Big Data & Analytics and the Hackathon Playbook.

It covers the core and emerging topics needed to achieve these outcomes, such as prototyping, programming IoT devices, electronic circuit design, network connectivity, IoT security, data visualization and much more. One of the consistent instructional focus areas across the IoT Fundamentals curriculum is to develop and expand a creative maker mindset. Students tinker, prototype and iterate in a lab environment modeled after makerspaces and then transition to understand how those concepts can be applied at the enterprise level to transform businesses. 

The curriculum has been precisely engineered with many features to help students explore and understand the domain, outlined below: 

Rich multimedia content, including interactive activities, videos, games and quizzes, addresses a variety of learning styles to help stimulate learning and increase knowledge retention.

Cisco Prototyping Lab to facilitate hands-on labs using a blend of maker-grade technologies (Raspberry Pi, Arduino) and enterprise-grade technologies (Cisco Spark).

Packet Tracer simulation-based learning activities help students develop critical thinking and complex problem-solving skills by designing realistic models of real or imagined implementations.

Assessments provide immediate feedback to support the evaluation of knowledge and acquired skills.

Hackathons are used as a learning tool to reinforce and apply the skills students have acquired thus far. In the hackathon they will work in a team to identify a business or social need, design a prototype of a solution to address the identified need and present their solution to their peers and an expert panel.

Certiport Training

It’s that time of year again. Certiport and Oklahoma CareerTech are pleased to offer multiple days of FREE training and certification testing. In each session, Certiport will provide product information, hands-on study and practice via LearnKey and GMetrix solutions and certification testing (up to three exams) in various Certiport programs.

These sessions are for instructors who are credentialing their students and need help or new instructors that are getting started in the upcoming year. I would love for the experienced instructors to share best practices so come prepared.

Here is a tentative outline for the day:

  • Presentation/discussion about college and career readiness. We will help you get your students excited about credentialing by showing them how they can earn college credit and the benefit of having an industry credential when applying for actual jobs in the area. 
  • Prep time. This time will allow you to use your GMetrix practice tests to prepare for your exams in the afternoon. I also provided you with access to LearnKey curriculum. I strongly encourage you to use it prior to your session.
  • Lunch on your own.
  • Certify. In the afternoon you will be able to take up to three exams.

Here is the link to register: Certiport Oklahoma Testing Event Registration.

*Please only register for one slot per person even if taking multiple certifications
