* Each course is recommended for teachers of all grades/subjects.
- Effectively Using Media in the Classroom, Part I
The average 21st century learner is usually never without technology. With the advent of multimedia, i.e. videos and social media platforms, teachers can find ways to be more creative and prompt students to think critically. Organized in two sections: Section 1 provides an overview of using media as a contemporary method of teaching in the classroom and as a means of more effective content delivery. Section 2 uses the African American History Calendar in KnowItall.org and PBS Ken Burns collection resources to look at modifying lessons to engage students as a means of learning for comprehension.
- Teaching and Learning in Carolina Classrooms, Series III
(You do NOT have to take Series I & II prior.)
Through resources examining a variety of educational topics, Series III builds on the content of Series I and II. SCETV’s educational series Carolina Classrooms allows us to learn from education leaders, administrators and teachers, parents, and community partners, providing insight on topics, including developing a positive school climate, STEAM, education equity, reading to learn, and exploring career education, especially for young women. We’ll meet our most recent SC Teacher of the Year finalists and explore history, natural history, career and arts related video-based segments that can bring real-world experiences into the classroom.
- Project-Based Learning: Engaging 21st Century Learners, Part II
(You must complete the Part I course before taking Part II.)
Project-Based Learning is a teaching strategy wherein students learn by actively engaging in meaningful projects with real-world applicability. This second course extends on the first course in which participants were able to learn about the basic components of a project-based lesson. In Part II, participants will first review the core seven components of a project-based lesson. Next, participants will evaluate examples of successful project-based lessons. Lastly, participants will create their own project-based lesson to upload into KnowItAll.org.
