Educators recognize the need to provide the right framework for our students to achieve in the 21st Century global workforce. We not only want our students to have the skills to achieve in college and career, but to also be responsible productive citizens. We can do this by providing rich experiential learning opportunities through innovation and digital literacy along with life and career skills. This course will help educators meet the rigor of the Next Generation and Common Core State Standards through a project-based approach to curriculum design and instruction. Critical thinking, effective communication, information analysis, access to technology and imagination will be our skills for success and advanced student achievement. A one size fits all learning community does not exist in the 21st Century classroom. Teachers will learn how to encourage curiosity, ingenuity and collaboration through a wide variety of differentiated experiences that are designed to meet the demand of their curriculum and the needs of students. This class is appropriate for all educators P-12, ELA, Social Studies, Math, Science, LOTE, ESL, Special Education, Visual Arts, Music, Theatre Arts, Physical Education, Technology, Guidance Counselors and Social Workers and Psychologists.
