Link to ALEC

This is a two-hour introduction to an online course that will run through August 12. In this course, you will assume the role of "Designer of Learning."You will use the Understanding by Design template to backwards-plan learning that includes teaching for transfer and understanding, while integrating technology and 21st Century Skills. You will design learning goals and the assessment plan first, then determine how iPads (or other mobile device) can support the learning goals. Strategies will be shared to move beyond transfer of a traditional teaching practice to the mobile device, but rather to transform teaching and learning by using the mobile device to do things that wouldn't be possible
