SDTRAC: South Dakota Transportation And Civil Engineering Program

The South Dakota Department of Transportation has recently developed a South Dakota TRAC Program.  TRAC (Transportation and Civil Engineering) is an educational outreach program offered through the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). The program is intended for use in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) classes.  The hands-on activities introduce students to the work world of transportation and civil engineering in hopes of inspiring students to consider  a career in transportation. The DOT works with schools by providing national standard aligned curricula and resources to teachers.  The DOT coordinates visits to the classroom by engineers who can to serve as speakers, assist in hands-on activity, and/or talk to students about the importance of math and science in preparing for their future. 

There is more program information at the SDDOT TRAC website (http://trac.sddot.com/) for teachers or anyone wanting more information about the program.

SWIVL Technology in the CTE Classroom

Participants in this workshop will learn how the Mitchell School District utilizes SWIVL Technology in their CTE classrooms.  Joe Childs, MHS Principal along with other Mitchell staff will share their knowledge about implementing the technology to address these challenges:  enhancing the technological skills of the faculty, providing repeated learning opportunities for students in the building and in surrounding schools, and reducing the seemingly unavoidable instructional losses due to teacher/student absences.  Accomplishing all of these is possible through the use of classroom lesson recording technology, in this case SWIVL. 

 

When teachers use SWIVL, as demonstrated by a 3-teacher pilot this year at MHS, they have and extensively use the recordings to enhance their own instruction.  They also create libraries of lessons for their classrooms which students can then visit and revisit to assist them in their understanding.  When the instructor is absent from the classroom and students left in the less capable hands of the substitute, with SWIVL the lesson can still be provided ahead of time or from the past with no loss of instructional time.  When the student is absent--games, activities, illness, etc.--they can go to the day's lesson and instantly have what they would have otherwise missed.
