SDDOT offers training for teachers who want to bring TRAC™ education into their classrooms. The resources are intended to complement your existing curriculum and enhance what you are already doing in your classroom.
TRAC™ training is designed to introduce you to the program and associated software and other resources your students will be using in the classroom. By receiving training on these programs, you will be able to answer most questions your students have as they work through the various activities.
This training is conducted by National Board Certified instructors who have had teams in the state and national Bridge Building Competition. Once training is completed, you will receive one TRAC™ module with the software and materials needed for you to use in the classroom.
The SDDOT anticipates hosting training classes in Pierre on an annual basis. Training sessions are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Teachers must fill out the application and secure approval from their school administrator before being eligible for selection.
