About this Course
This course is a follow-up to a three-day professional development program for practicing teachers. The focus is on selecting and enacting cognitively demanding instructional tasks in modeling and reasoning within a classroom environment rich in technology, discourse, and formative assessment for student learning. The program builds teacher’s technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) in four conceptual categories:
- Implementing cognitively demanding instructional tasks.
- Developing student use of Modeling
- Developing student use of Reasoning
- Integration of technology tools that enhance modeling and reasoning
This intensive hands-on experience is interspersed with reflective discussions and followed by written reflective statements.
