A Rural Schools Initiative: Integrating Visioning, T-TESS, & Neuroscience to Improve Student LearningEngaging the Net Generation
Part of 21st century learning is understanding how the brain actually works. This year's Rural Schools Initiative Academy is focused on working with educators to design tomorrow's learning for yesterday's brain. The brain we have is the only one we get; trade-ins aren't available! Teachers will learn to design more effective instruction and principals will become more aware of instructional principles to look for when conducting observations under the T-TESS.
Engaging the Net Generation embraces the role of teacher as guide to instruction and shows educators how to engage students by merging engagement, design, and the digital environment into the 21st-century learning experience students deserve.
Engaging the Next Generation
Engaging the Next Generation is designed as a sequel to Engaging the Net Generation. While the "Net Generation" provides a framework for teachers to use digital tools for student engagement, the "Next Generation" concentrates on teachers creating and curating digital resources for student engagement.
Transformation requires us “to do things [we] have never done before — not just get better at what [we] have always done.”
