TEC1213: Station Rotation 1: Intro & Background

Implement station rotations in a secondary classroom and leverage the power of differentiation. The strategies taught in this course allow the teacher to create an engaging environment where students get to practice independently while the teacher works on targeted skills with a small group of students.

TEC1214: Station Rotation 2: Grouping Students

Continuing the theme of differentiation from the first course (Station Rotation 1: Intro & Background), the second course in this series will teach you how to group your students. You will learn how to assess your students to identify common needs. Using the assessment data, you will be able to group students in smaller numbers to target specific needs.

You must be registered for a "Station Rotation 1: Intro & Background" course that can be completed prior to the start of this course in order for your registration to be accepted.

TEC1215: Station Rotation 3: Managing and Creating Engaging Stations

Continuing the theme of differentiation and grouping from the first two courses, this third course will discuss strategies to create a structure that is engaging and student centered during your station rotation time. A large part of student engagement is the design of the task. We will leverage the use of technology to create engaging stations for your students.

You must be registered for both a "Station Rotation 1: Intro & Background" and a "Station Rotation 2: Grouping Students" course that can be completed prior to the start of this course in order for your registration to be accepted.

TEC: Designing for Innovation 1: Identifying

In the first course of the Designing for Innovation series, you will identify a problem of practice and an innovative solution that you would like to implement in your classroom. You will be provided with tools to help you identify ways to improve instructional practice through the use of personalized learning strategies.

 

TEC1230: Flipping the Classroom: Intro & Background

In this course, you will learn how to implement a flipped classroom with your students. You will understand the components of a flipped classroom such as differentiation and making a flipped video.

You will also have an opportunity to create your own flipped classroom lesson.

TEC1204: Getting Started with Screencasting

Screencasting can be a powerful way for teachers- and students- to demonstrate knowledge of content and problem-solving skills. Teachers can use screencasts to "flip" lessons, while students can create their own screencasts to demonstrate mastery of skills. In this online course, delivered through Canvas, you will learn how to create your own screencasts. The objective of this course is to discover screencasting tools and apply screencasting tips to create a screencast that you will be able to use with your students. This course is intended to take about 75 minutes, but could go longer or shorter. It can be completed in one sitting or can be broken up into smaller sessions.

TEC1158: Using YouTube in the Classroom

Learn all about YouTube and maximizing its use in the classroom. Discover tips and tricks to easily locate relevant videos to use in the classroom including creating playlists.

TEC1207: PBL 1: What is PBL?

In this course, participants will understand what Project-Based Learning (PBL) is, get to know its essential elements and explore sample PBL projects in order to start thinking about their own ideas for a project.

TEC1208: PBL 2: Choosing Your Project and the Driving Question

After having learned the essential elements of PBL, it's now time to start developing a project. In this course, participants will develop their project ideas, use technology to support their idaes, and develop their project's Driving Question.

You must be registered for a "PBL 1: What is PBL?" course that can be completed prior to the start of this course in order for your registration to be accepted.

TEC: Designing for Innovation 2: Developing

In the second course of the Designing for Innovation series, you will design a plan to integrate an innovative practice into your teaching. This will include examining how to embed innovation into assessments, activities, and planning as well as creating a timeline to help you track your journey. Designing for Innovation 1: Identifying is a prerequisite for this course.

TEC1210: Gamification 1: Theory

Research based ideas behind educational gamification. Conceptual structure of a gamified instructional unit with a view to development for the individual teacher.

End Product: Participants will complete a basic design for a gamified instructional unit.

TEC1211: Gamification 2: Assets

Organizational and graphical technology skills that enable teachers to develop and publish their own materials for classroom gamificaiton.

End Product: Participants will start a working document for planning and recording development of a gamified unit. Participants will create a set of graphic assets to be used in their gamified units.

You must be registered for a "Gamification 1: Theory" course that can be completed prior to the start of this course in order for your registration to be accepted.

TEC1212: Gamification 3: Delivery

Construction and delivery of a gamified unit through a LMS.

End Product: Each participant will end the course with a complete online gamified instructional unit, ready for classroom application.

You must be registered for a both a "Gamification 1: Theory" and a "Gamification 2: Assets" course that can be completed prior to the start of this course in order for your registration to be accepted.

TEC1264: Gamification 4: Applying Concepts

This course provides a brief overview of gamification, but its focus is translating concepts from four game theorists into practical classroom application. The first three Gamification courses are not a prerequisite for this course, although it is recommended to complete them in order to derive maximum benefit from this course.

TEC1209: PBL3: Assessments, Evaluation and Project Completion

Assessments are an integral part of PBL. In this course, develop assessments for your project, as well as self-evaluations for your students. Finally, tie all the pieces together and complete your project.

You must be registered for "PBL 1" and "PBL 2" courses that can be completed prior to the start of this course in order for your registration to be accepted.

TEC: Designing for Innovation 3: Assessing

In the third course of the Designing for Innovation series, you will determine how to assess if your innovative strategy has been successful. This will include examining factors that may have contributed to the success of your plan and factors that could be improved for the future. Designing for Innovation 1: Identifying and Designing for Innovation 2: Developing are prerequisites for this course.
