Description

In NOW
Classrooms, Grades 9–12: Lessons for Enhancing Teaching and Learning Through
Technology
– part of the NOW Classrooms series – authors Meg Ormiston,
Scott D. Parker, Tom Lubbers, Gretchen Fitzharris, Ellen K. Lawrence and Katie
N. Aquino stress that real transformational school change focuses on robust
teaching and learning, not the ever-evolving devices that may enhance that
change. This book presents practical, classroom tested lessons that Years 9–12
teachers and instructional coaches can use to prime students to actively learn
and solve real-world problems. Sets of topical lessons – one novice lesson, one operational lesson and one wow
lesson – progressively increase in depth and complexity for readers to choose
from based on students’ needs. Using these lessons, grounded in the essential
four C skills (communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity),
teachers can connect technology to key content-area outcomes and prepare students
to succeed in the 21st century. 


Years 9–12 teachers will:



  • gain practical novice, operational and wow
    lessons for using technology

  • allow students to exercise their voice,
    choice and creativity

  • help students keep themselves and their
    data safe online

  • gather helpful teaching and technology
    tips

  • use chapter-ending discussion questions
    for personal or collaborative reflection.
