A brand new course being offered this summer is “Creating Digital Tools for Teaching, Learning, and Productivity.” Participants will explore free online resources to create numerous tools for use in the classroom to create videos, presentations, interactive rubrics, and more.

Educators will also have the opportunity to partake in two courses that focus on social issues in education, “Children and Poverty: Classroom Strategies,” and “Children and Poverty: School and Community Perspectives.” These courses will examine childhood poverty and its impact on student engagement and learning. They will focus on research-based strategies for increasing motivation, effort, and student achievement. Attendees will learn strategies for engaging students and developing a plan for addressing poverty in their educational setting.

Other courses offered for summer 2015 focus on early literacy, science, technology and much more. K-12 educators can choose from such courses as: “Engaging our Youngest Learners in Science,” “Educational Improvisation: Enhancing Creativity in Common Core Classrooms,” and “Using Technology to Enhance Student Writing and Comprehension in the Classroom.” Education Outreach will continue to add more courses, so educators are encouraged to check the full course listings (www.uwgb.edu/educationoutreach/) often for the latest updates.
