NCRTEC's new Learning With Technology Facilitator's Academy features a combination of hands-on activities, simulations, and case-study analyses that focus on effective use of technology in teaching and learning. During the two days of intensive study, participants learn and practice facilitation skills, experience engaged learning and constructivist teaching practices, and prepare themselves to deliver the Learning With Technology (LWT) course in their local school or school district.
The "new" LWT course features linkages to all of the major new initiatives in educational technology today: standards for students, teachers, and administrators; 21st century skills; NCRTEC's Scoring Guide for Student Products; NCRTEC's Lesson Planner; the enGauge framework and resources; NCREL's Captured Wisdom and what works; NCREL's Plugging In, NCREL's Computer-Based Technology and Learning: Evolving Uses and Expectations; and much more.
Each state and local education agency is searching for ways to improve student academic achievement, including technology literacy, through the effective use of technology in classrooms and the integration of technology in the school curricula and instructional strategies as required in Title II, Part D, of the No Child Left Behind legislation. NCRTEC's Learning With Technology course is an excellent process for education agencies to ensure their ongoing efforts of technology integration in teaching and learning.
