Next Generation Learning: How to teach your Students to be Self–Directed Learners
Since we know education moves in cycles, we see Common Core moving out, and Next Generation moving in. As always our roles as teachers need to ebb and flow as well. This course will describe just what we need to achieve a greater understanding of the Next Generation Standards. We will discuss how to move forward in our curriculum with our students in our classrooms today. This course will provide you with the knowledge to be more of a facilitator in your classroom as you coach your students and as they become more active in their own learning. Educators will explore how to promote and encourage self-directed learning in your classroom, while also creating a learning environment that encourages collaboration. Teachers will discuss how to help your students manage their own learning, and inspire their thinking skills. These skills will help them thrive in their daily lives both inside and outside of the classroom.
This course is a must for all teachers of all disciplines K-12.
