Jump Start: The Teacher's Guide to Tech (with Jennifer Gonzalez of Cult of Pedagogy)
By guiding you through a series of hands-on projects, this self-paced course will give you the confidence and skills you need to make smart choices about the tech you use in your teaching. Through 10 modules, you'll learn 10 key processes that can have an incredible impact on how you teach, how your students learn, how you collaborate and communicate with others, and the time it takes to do it all.After you learn each process and how it can enhance your classroom work, you’ll complete a hands-on project to practice that process with one tool. As you finish each module, you’ll be able to transfer that process to your own classroom, using the same tool or another one of your choosing. Here's how it works:
- You’ll start each module with a short reading assignment. This is where we explore the process, consider its instructional value, and look at how it can enhance learning in multiple ways.
- Next, you’ll review your project checklist to understand the requirements of your hands-on project. For most projects, an advanced option has been added to offer extra challenge to those who master the process easily.
- Then it’s time to dig into your hands-on project. You’ll watch a series of step-by-step video tutorials to learn how to do it.
- When your project is complete, you’ll share it in a blog post. A sample blog, with all ten modules complete, is provided to help you get a clear picture of what your final project should look like.
The Maker Space Master Course (with John Spencer)
This course is grounded in proven principles and strategies that work. It’s broken down into simple, step-by-step lessons that allow you to walk through each of the seven days of designing a makerspace. Each lesson will leave you with resources, optional extensions, and an easy-to-follow action item as you move closer to the finished product. You’ll also have access to experts on makerspaces who can answer your questions and give you feedback. No guesswork. No reverse engineering. No more hours or searching the internet for something that makes sense. Instead, you will:
- Start the day’s lesson with a short reading assignment and video. This will provide some background knowledge before diving into the ideas.
- Next, you go in-depth with videos, step-by-step instructions, and optional extension activities.
- You will end with a specific, hands-on mission that will take you closer to designing your makerspace.
