Course Description: The purpose of the 21 Things 4 Teachers course is to provide ”Just in Time” training through an online interface for K-12 educators based on the International Society for Technology in Education Standards for Teachers. These standards are the basic technology skills every educator should possess. Educators will have the opportunity to develop their own skills, obtain Michigan Department of Education SCECHs, and address student skills needed to meet Michigan Educational Technology Standards (METS).
Teachers who love the idea of learning “any time, any place" will embrace the 21 Things 4 Teachers learning strands. The entire content of the 21 Things 4 Teachers full online course can be completed within the 10-week time frame by those who want to dive in to an immersive learning experience, or those looking for just-in-time training in an online environment who want to just dip their toes in to sample or “splash around” to learn a few new tech skills may choose an individual learning path from the 21 modules within the course start and end dates.

Choose from six NEW 10-hour online modules extending 21 Things 4 Teachers for more personalized learning.
Module 1: Enhancing Instruction for All Learners

Course Description: Select your own learning path. This nine-week online series, offered through Lenawee ISD, has an open entrance/exit starting on June 20, 2016 and ending by August 24, 2016. Because much of this content is not part of the original 21things4Teachers.net course, teachers who have taken 21 Things in the past may complete any of these six modules for additional SCECH credit beyond their previous 21 Things 4 Teachers experience. Each of the six individual PD modules is designed to take 10 hours to complete, although additional resources have been provided to extend learning for those who want to do more than the minimum. Participation requires one-time mandatory attendance at one of several orientation “launch” meeting options to be held online. Participants may then elect to complete one, two, or even all six 10-hour modules. SCECHs credited will range from 11 to 62 (including the online launch meeting and allowing credit for additional option of one-on-one or site visit support for individuals as requested). All assignments must be completed and portfolio materials submitted by August 24, 2016.
