Online Course: Student-Centered 1:1 Learning
A 30-hour online course prepares teachers to support learner-centered 1:1 classrooms with Google Apps for Education. Teachers work individually, in "quads" (groups of four) and full cohort teams to explore and discuss readings, strategies, and key issues in light of current local practice and new opportunities presented.
The course is crafted for tech-wary teachers who are not making headway on their own and need structure and supports. Course mentors (peer teacher volunteers with early aptitudes for student-centered learning and technology integration) ensure that technical barriers do not prevent these teachers from full, valuable participation in both the course and the 1:1 initiative.
