Student-Centered Classrooms: A Constructivist Approach

Participants in this course will examine student-centered classrooms with a constructivist approach - a significant shift away from the typical teacher-centered classroom. In a student-centered classroom, much of the direction and leadership is passed onto the students and the teacher becomes the classroom facilitator. This course provides participants with an in-depth exploration of how student-centered classrooms can engage and enhance the learning of all students.

Technology Tools for the Digital Teacher

Educators will become skilled on how to use digital resources to collaborate, create, communicate, and assess students. Participants will gain an understanding of internet resources to create an online classroom (using a web-based learning management system), flipped classroom and screen-casting, formative assessments, eBooks, videos, communication options for students and parents, and more to maximize the learning environment and reach students through different learning mediums.
