The K-12 Digital Learning Institute at Abilene Christian University creates a place where teachers can practice and experience the integration of state-of-the-art technology for student engagement, problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity.
K-12 Digital Learning Institute
Through face-to-face summer sessions, observations throughout the school year and an ongoing learning community, the K-12 Digital Learning Institute trains teachers in mobile learning techniques, modeling for them how to implement these methods in their classrooms.
In the K-12 Digital Learning Institute, ACU teacher education faculty help educators to:
- Create engaging lessons that facilitate student engagement and the development of 21st-century skills - problem-solving, higher-order thinking, analysis, creativity, & collaboration
- Incorporate NETS-S standards into lesson plans
- Practice new teaching techniques in live classroom situations
- Share ideas and support with fellow educators in an ongoing learning community
- Develop the skills to meet the National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T)
Registration for the 2012 Summer Sessions opens in February 2012.
