Inquiry

Collaboration
Learn how to use technology to design for meaningful student interactions and participation in collaborative structures. Shift your role to facilitator to promote collectivist or communal approach.

Assessment for Learning
Discover strategies and tools that allow individual learners to set goals, assess learning, track progress and present their growth. Empower students as co-designers of their assessment, owning and sharing their learning.

Equitable Access and Demand/Agency
