Computing Integrated Teacher Education (CITE) @ CUNY

Computing Integrated Teacher Education is a four-year initiative to support CUNY faculty at all ranks to integrate state standards aligned computing content and pedagogy into required education courses, field work and student teaching. Supported by public funding from the New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE) Computer Science for All (CS4All) program and private funding from the Robin Hood Learning + Technology Fund, the initiative will focus on building on and complementing the success of NYCDOE CS4All and pilots to integrate computational thinking at Queens College, Hunter College and Hostos Community College.

The initiative focuses on:
– Supporting institutional change in teacher education programs
– Building faculty computing pedagogical content knowledge through the lens of culturally response-sustaining education
– Supporting faculty research in equitable computing education, inclusive STEM pedagogies, and effects on their students’ instructional practices

    I’m Beatrice (she/her), adjunct lecturer with the TESOL Masters program (and proud alum of the same!).  I was impressed by CODAP – I played around with the 2010 Census info and learned a lot about the diversity (*cough* lack thereof) of my home “county” in the state of Indiana and felt that much more grateful that Brooklyn is and has been home since I moved here permanently when I was 19.

    Hello, I am Dominika McPartland, I am an adjunct lecturer in a TESOL department. Looking forward to meeting everyone and learning about tools that can support our teachers in developing fun and engaging lessons.


    I’m Maite Sánchez (she, her, ella), and I’m an assistant professor of bilingual education at Hunter College’s School of Education.

    I’ve used Commons as a participant for in a couple of courses and projects but I’ve used it much. I use Padlet and Jamboard in my classes and I found them easy to use and very helpful, and I’ve been wanting to use FlipGrid; I look forward to learning this and other tools.

    Im Sean Turner (He, Him, His) – I am an Adjunct Professor in Special Education – and teach a wide range of courses. I am excited about all the digital tools – explored so far – some of which I have used a lot (Padlet/Scratch) and others (particularly around the data) I am looking to learn more or ways to integrate into the courses I work with.

    Hi Everyone,
    My apologies for posting so late! I am an Associate Professor of TESOL. I teach courses a range of courses, but my staples are: Literacy and Technology, Instructed Second Language Acquisition, Teaching Reading and Writing to Adult Languages Learners and Technology in the Early Education classroom.

    CODAP was a new tool for me. I am currently playing with it to see if I can make a map of where new TESOL admits are from or where they have lived. I usually have my students in first classes pin places they have lived.

    Excited to learn with you this summer, despite my late start!

    (One thing I do not like about this forum is I want to be able to delete the file I mistakenly attached).

    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Daniela Tîrnovan. Excited to be here. My pronouns are she/her

    I have used Flipgrid before with my students, and I am excited to learn about more tools we can integrate into our teaching.

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Eugenia, but I go by Debbie (she/her). I’m an adjunct lecturer in the TESOL dept., and I also run the two adult literacy programs connected with our TESOL department.

    Looking forward to using all the tech tools we’ll be exploring this summer and passing along this knowledge to the graduate students I work with. I’m only familiar with PADLET, so this should be interesting.
