The Media Lab is offering a paid service opportunity to undergraduate students. Tech Tutors will work with small groups (“learning pods”) of students who need extra support during COVID-19, focusing on offering creative STEAM activities and general support for digital learning. The program will serve middle school (6-8) students from low-income families at a partner school. Becoming a Tech Tutor offers MIT students an ELO and a chance to invest in positive social change in their communities. In addition to working with students, Tech Tutors will also be invited to a series of seminars on learning and pedagogy with researchers from the Media Lab.
