T21 focuses on web-based tools for communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking, with a spotlight on Google Apps for Education and Google Chromebooks.
21st Century isn't just about the technology - it's also about the thinking. A major cohort goal will be for teachers to develop projects that will help students learn key academic content while practicing 21st century skills and to begin the process of developing digital portfolios.
What’s in it for our educators?
- They will gain a better understanding of strategies and ideas to leverage digital tools in the classroom to deepen students’ interest and engagement in academic learning.
- Teacher participants will receive a Google Chromebook and will gain a full understanding of how to leverage Google tools for communication and collaboration in the classroom.
- Participation counts toward re-certification hours/professional portfolio.
- Optional graduate credit.
