Creating the 21st Century Assignments: Self-paced mastery learning in a flipped digital environment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can essential questions, digitized lectures, student research, collaboration, student blogging, historical fiction, self paced, and mastery learning come together to change teaching and learning in your classroom? Join Mike and Garth as we dissect the process of creating a 21st century webquest, based on the essential questions of your curriculum, that allows students to collaborate and develop depth of understanding and master content. Using constructionist methodology, flipped teaching and free applications, you can provide students with the opportunity to guide their own learning. During this session we will talk about the philosophy and design of WebQuests, how to share your WebQuest with students and how WebQuests can be used to change teaching and learning.
