Teaching in the Digital Age


Online and blended learning provides a means of personalizing instruction, allowing teachers to accelerate learning as never before. This course will allow teachers explore best practices teaching in the digital age, engage in meaningful digital learning, and discover how technology can improve interactions between you and your students. Please expect to spend 30 hours (plus 15-20 hours on the system to complete assignments). The course is delivered in an online format with two REQUIRED webinars. 



You will build the framework of your own individualized course, including targeted lessons, and the use of groups to support student and parent relationships. You will develop lessons in content using blended/online instructional strategies and gather resources to create a digital tool box which can be used for differentiation of instruction and assessment, enhanced communication, and collaboration and project based learning in your classroom.
