Room 119

Twenty-first century learning skills are at the forefront of educational advancement and are the cornerstone of instructional strategies used to prepare students for college and career. The use of research-based strategies in this session will empower teachers to provide ALL students access to instructional content while fostering student ownership for their learning. Participants will explore how to integrate pedagogical strategies (Problem/Project-Based Learning, Technology, and Engineering Design Process) that are authentic, open-ended, and learner-centered to engage students and develop the 4 Cs- critical thinking/problem-solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity/innovation- to increase student achievement. Within this fast-paced session, participants will “learn by doing” as they make connections between the content and real-life application. You will depart equipped with a toolbox of effective ready-to-use strategies that will be sure to remove learning barriers.
