Check Out This Self-Paced Inquiry-Based Learning Course
Inquiry-based learning aims to increase student engagement by helping learners develop hands-on, minds-on skills. This education and teacher training course explores the 5E instructional model and its uses in the classroom. You will have the opportunity to learn from videos of classroom teachers modeling a 5E lesson and access teacher commentary as they use inquiry-based strategies with their students. As a result, you will develop the skills and strategies needed to implement inquiry-based instruction in your own classroom.
An inquiry-based approach honors the complex work of learning. It prioritizes the knowledge and experience that students bring to the classroom and it promotes active problem solving, communication, and the shared construction of new ideas. Inquiry-based instruction is the foundation for the UTeach model. This education course serves as a useful introduction to this approach.
The Apps Show
The Professional Development Department is excited to announce the introduction of Training for Google Apps—a virtual coach and guide for using you Round Rock ISD Google Apps account. Training for Google Apps is a Google Chrome extension that provides users a personal training experience on common uses of Google’s suite of applications. Excellent for those users who are brand new to the application and would like to learn key tasks, such as sending an email, and for those users who are more experienced and need assistance with more advanced tasks, such as setting up labels.
Training for Google Apps is integrated into Google in a way that provides a training experience like no other. Need assistance sending an email? With Training for Google Apps, users will be guided through the task visually from start to finish—all without leaving the application.
