The Engaged, Technology-Enabled Classroom
A competency-based learning program from iLearn Collaborative to help educators implement strategies for using technology to create the time and space to get to know your students and create a classroom culture that fosters choice, agency and authentic learning.
The Engaged, Technology-Enabled Classroom micro-credential program captures what our teacher leaders have learned about integrating technology into their instructional practices. It begins with an introduction to two basic blended learning techniques: the flipped classroom and the station rotation model. The learner then progresses to an explicit strategy for engaging students with gamification techniques, and concludes with strategies for creating a healthy blended classroom culture, focusing on nurturing student voice and choice and applying project-based learning techniques. Engaging digital content will introduce learners to the concepts.
Participants will then be asked to demonstrate competency in applying those concepts through authentic projects that integrate with their day-to-day teaching work. An experienced practitioner will provide virtual support to facilitate learning.
