Designed for teachers in grades 3 – 12
Digital learning and digital literacy play a substantive role in ensuring that all students are college and career ready. This hands-on course provides direct instruction on how to use technology to emphasize communication and higher-order thinking, drive inquiry, and create rich, engaging, and student-centered learning opportunities. Because technology, used effectively, is not a stand-alone learning activity, during the course you will unpack Common Core State Standards in your grade level and subject area to see where they call for technology integration, and examine and experiment with mobile and web-based education technologies and use cases appropriate for your classroom context.
This course provides a firm foundation and resources for making complex decisions about how, when, and why to use technology in the classroom, and is appropriate for instructors across grade levels, subject areas, and levels of experience with education technologies.
Instructors: Shawn Kim and Pamela Levine
