Once Upon a Training ....in a cyberspace not so far away the Intel Teach Elements Courses were born. They were new young online courses who needed to spread their digital resources to teachers all across the globe. They were created to inspire, enrich and give educators the opportunity to boldly go where no educator has gone before. But... they were missing certain ELEMENTS that would make their world complete. They turned to Teachers Engage Community to network ideas and tips to help the Elements Courses reach their full potential of providing deeper exploration of 21st century learning concepts.
Currently, there are 5 Elements courses living in the Kingdom of 21st Century Classroom Cyberspace (Project Based Approaches, Collaboration in the Digital Classroom, Assessments in 21st Century Classrooms, Thinking Critically with Data and Leadership in the 21st Century). Each course has a special magical power to enhance classrooms and professional development environments, but each needs a round-table discussion to explore the benefits of this anytime, anywhere learning kingdom.
Queen 21st Century has summoned two of her loyal subjects, The Dynamic Duo, to help expand facilitation strategies and resources with each of these courses. Our heroines need your assistance, as well. They need you to share questions, strategies, ideas and resources.
The Dynamic Duo has decided to focus on one Element course at a time. Their second quest will be to explore the online-world of Assessments in 21st Century Classrooms. What resources, ideas, and strategies do you have to enrich the integration and implementation of the Assessments Course?
All noble subjects willing to share ideas will be granted entry into a royal drawing for a piece of the 21st Century’s treasure - a Camtasia Pen/Notebook
Share your thoughts between August 21 and October 20 to have your name entered into a drawing for the Camtasia Pen/Notebook. A drawing will occur on October 20, if there are over 10 participants in this discussion thread. The thread and its resources will remain active after the drawing. It’s a wonderful opportunity for all of us to better facilitate the Elements courses.
Unfortunately, for legal reasons, we can only ship prizes within the U.S., but the contents of this discussion are applicable to every Intel Teach educator worldwide, so please help build a solid set of tips and resources for everyone. We look forward to your contributions.
