Course 3: Creating Significant Learning Environments
Explore the theories of constructivist epistemology used to create student-centered learning environments. This course outlines a series of essential process skills that will empower your students for personal and professional success. In 1993, Ian Jukes introduced educators to the concept of the Fluencies. The Fluencies are the mental process skills needed by each of us to live, work, and learn in an ever-changing world. These Fluencies include Solution Fluency, Collaboration Fluency, Information Fluency, Media Fluency, Creativity Fluency, and Global Digital Citizenship. More than twenty years on, the constant forces of change and globalization have made it necessary to move beyond the Fluencies to the Modern Learning skills essential to ensuring that all of our students can thrive in modern times. Participants will be provided with access to an extensive digital library of resources and tools, specifically aligned to the Creating Significant Learning Environments curriculum.
