About Teacher TechConnect
Teacher TechConnect (TCC) is an initiative aimed at informing teachers about the array of technology-focused career possibilities in order to help them better guide their students according to current skill demands. Spearheaded by Bluelock, with support from Angie's List and TechPoint Foundation for Youth, the initiative was started in 2016 with an event at Pike High School in Indianapolis.
TCC is a replicable program that combines an informative panel made up of technology leaders with break-out sessions during which teachers can more deeply engage with specific questions. This one-time event is a way to jump start the connection between teachers in the classroom and professionals in the tech community, allowing for collaboration that will impact the students going into the next generation of tech careers.
