21st Century Instructional Practices

There are several frameworks to help teachers enhance their teaching with instructional technology.  This course introduces you to those frameworks and then helps you explore which one works best for you by encouraging  you to analyze, modify and teach a lesson using it. 

During this course you will build

  • A process to analyze current activities for alignment to TPACK (or the framework you are current using)
  • A lesson plan that aligns with your chosen framework.
  • A reflection of your plan post-implementation

I learned several strategies and frameworks for scrutinizing the effectiveness of my lesson planning and my efficacy as a teacher. This course offered a great deal of actionable content to inform a teacher's practice.
