Next Generation Teacher+ is our signature yearlong program (formally known as T21), designed to incorporate the best of in-person and online learning into one comprehensive professional development experience aimed at increasing student engagement and teacher satisfaction. We specialize in supporting schools with implementing school wide initiatives in Student-Centered Learning (SCL) and Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Through our expert guidance, we empower educators to create inclusive, engaging, and innovative learning environments that leverage technology to promote student success and prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century and beyond.
Google Workspace for Education
Our Google Workspace for Education program leaves participants with a keen understanding of Google Apps for Education, greater confidence, increased knowledge and skills, practical activities for integrating Google apps into the curriculum, and a readiness to take a leadership role in promoting thoughtful technology use in classrooms.
Microsoft for Education
Throughout this T21 course, we will take a hands-on approach to understanding the Office 365 platform and how we can use the tools available to create learning environments that engage students, foster collaboration, and increase productivity and communication. Course participants will ultimately modify and adapt their existing classroom practice to leverage Office 365 tools in their classroom to transform instruction and the student experience.
Personalized Learning will take a hands-on approach to understanding Personalized Learning and how to use its principles to create learning environments that engage students, foster curiosity, and encourage a collaborative approach to solving problems. Ultimately, participants will modify and adapt this process to best fit their curriculum so that they can encourage students to engage deeply with curricular content and take ownership of their learning. Participants will be given time to explore, practice and refine their skills in the workshop.
Project Based Learning
Project Based Learning is a framework to create a classroom environment that sparks engagement, research, problem solving, collaboration and authentic student work. Course participants will ultimately redesign existing course units into Project Based Learning experiences that are guided by a carefully crafted driving question to guide student research and exploration.
Train the Trainer (For Instructional Coaches)
Effective professional development can take many forms, but planning professional development should minimize dealing with the “nuts and bolts” and focus on reflection and pedagogy. This process takes time and is a continuous investment throughout the school year and beyond. The key is facilitating collaboration and communication amongst educational peers and exposing them to successful reflection practices both inside and outside of the institution. If we help teachers interact and reflect, both onsite and online, we help them grow professionally.
As technology and globalization transform our economy and civic sphere, school administrators and educators must rise to the challenge of preparing students for an ever more complex and cognitively demanding world. The program outlines steps school and district leaders can take to nurture school and district cultures that promote effective and conscientious innovation — specifically in tech-laden learning environments.
