Image result for International School of Panama,

High School Technology Teacher


Computer Studies, Integrated Design and Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program

 

Starting date:  January 2018

The primary function of The International School of Panama Teacher is to facilitate the students learning process and create productive environments in which students can develop skills they might need at present or in the future.  He or she provides within the classroom learning opportunities for the students and assists in other school programs working harmoniously with the administrative staff and parents in support of the ISP Teaching Philosophy, school policy, regulations, objectives and goals.


HIGH SCHOOL at ISP: 

We are a community of approximately 340 high school students (grades 9, 10, 11, and 12), fifty-plus faculty and staff members, and several hundred parents. Though a rigorous and engaging academic program sits at the core of the ISP high school experience – the arts, athletics, and service are also central to our program. The foundation that all of this is built upon is a shared belief that the most important thing that we do on this campus is take care of one another. 

We are very proud of the work, the learning, and the teaching we do together – and also quite humbled by the caliber of people we get to do it all with (on such a beautiful campus). We are all learning, growing, contributing, and finding (and fine-tuning) our passions in life. Students, faculty, and parents/families included.

The High School Faculty:

Our high school faculty is a mix of ISP founders and veterans who’ve been dedicated to ISP for 20 years, 25 years, or longer – along with many teachers who are relatively new to the school and bring experiences with them from all over the world. Our teaching staff is from the US, Canada, the UK/Europe, Panama, and other parts of Latin America

The Position and the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Certificate:

 

This position entails two interrelated courses, with some overlap in skill sets, but combined philosophy.  The Computer Studies and Integrated Design courses are targeted at students who have an interest in Raspberry Pi, Web Design, or App Creation.  It is a hands on course that mixes a knowledge of HTML Javascript, Python, and C++ with Arduino and an element of robotics and automation.  The course content is up to the students and teacher to create based on interest level and opportunities for real life application.  As an example, the class created a Thunder Alert/Lightening strike warning system for the athletic fields, a self-guided robotic all-terrain vehicle for accessing places humans cannot enter to check for blockages, and a competition buzzer system for the Knowledge Bowl trivia team.

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Certificate is a new path in some of the top schools around the world where students spend 2 years studying process design, project management, and social/business entrepreneurship. It has elements of technology, social development, and business mixed together to culminate in a final project in senior year that addresses a need in Panama.
