 21st Century Teaching and Learning

Course Overview:

Educators need to integrate technology into their curriculum to transform student learning and meet the goals of the 21st century. To succeed in today's information-driven academic environment, students need to know how to find, use, manage, evaluate and convey information efficiently and effectively. This includes not only knowledge of technology, but the ability to use critical-thinking skills to solve problems within a technological environment. Teachers wrap 21st century literacy skills into lesson content using a variety of strategies. This course helps educators plan and assess effective technology teaching methods, incorporate technology into any discipline, and develop key accountability and assessment strategies!

In this six week course, educators wear both a "student hat" and a "teacher hat" as they use digital technology and communication tools to solve problems. Educators experience how to use technology as a tool to research, organize, evaluate and communicate information, as well as develop a fundamental understanding of the ethical/legal issues surrounding the access and use of information. This valuable, first-hand experience demonstrates the essential technology skills students need to succeed in the 21st Century.
