Teaching, Learning, and Leading in the Digital Age

Using media selectively in the classroom can greatly enhance instruction, assessment and student engagement. In this course, teachers will learn the best practices for using images, video, audio and selective hardware, software and web-based collaborative tools. Panel discussions, interviews and practice sessions will also help educators sort through projects and resources to replace textbook-driven instruction with media-based tools and tips are provided for digital interventions for students with learning differences and/or struggling students.
