Nurturing Instructional Change In 21st Century Classrooms
Emerging technologies, a globalized world, and a changing labor market are spurring innovative approaches to district and school curriculum design. Innovative educators are incorporating inquiry-based learning strategies that make meaningful and innovative use of the "Read-Write" Web to prepare students to be effective global citizens. With this in mind, we are pleased to offer a unique online institute from November 3rd-21st for school and district curriculum designers, academic department heads, classroom teachers, and other educational leaders, focused on preparing how to use new technologies to foster 21st century competencies in students. Nurturing Instructional Change in 21st Century Classrooms is an online institute, hosted by MASCD and led by EdTechTeacher's Justin Reich and Tom Daccord, that provides participants with both conceptual frameworks as well as practical uses and applications for leveraging new technologies in classrooms. Participants will have the opportunity to explore curriculum pathways and Web 2.0 tools that can help transform teaching and learning within the classroom.
