Teaching and Learning are being transformed with the introduction of more and more technology including 1 to 1, where each student has his and her own computer.  The role of teachers is changing as well – to co-learner, coach and guide – as learning becomes more student-centered and active.

This course will present a model for the modern transformed classroom that helps teachers learn how to have students use technology effectively with a variety of strategies to individualize and personalize learning.  Teachers will redesign an instructional unit to include components of the new classroom model and the 21st Century Skills that support their new role as coaches and guides.  This course will include a new iPad configured to your classroom transformation to enable you to support personalized learning, view student artifacts and evidence of learning and record and share student work.
