Resources for Faculty Review

NEWS*NEWS*NEWS

The new ELEMENTS Courses offered now by Intel Teach will be the new focus for Faculty Review.  You can continue with the content from Essentials and Teaching Thinking with Technology as before, or you can "upgrade" to ELEMENTS.  Intel Teach is working with programmers now (February, 2011) building content for your own Learning Management System. This will make including ELEMENTS in your current pre-service curriculum much easier for you and your students.

If you are currently certified as a Faculty Review Master Teacher, you'll be contacted soon about the move to ELEMENTS and invited to online sessions to help with the transition.

If you choose to continue with Essentials and Teaching Thinking with Technology, the information below will walk you through the process of registering your course.

How do I get started?
 

The first thing to do is decide which course, Teaching Thinking with Technology or the Essentials Course, you will be including in your pre-service curriculum.  Forgotten which course is which?  click here

Next, you'll register your course in the Intel Teach Course Management Tool (CMT). 

Here's a PDF document with directions for registering your course. click here

 

If you've decided on Teaching Thinking with Technology, here are some resources that will help you get started:
 

1.  Rusty Trainer Resources (Thinking with Technology page) - this website was created for a refresher training last spring.  It contains directions for setting up the tools, has a short summary of each module, and has links to some "cheat sheets" at the bottom of the page.  Also on that page is "Using the Visual Ranking Tool", a voicethread video tutorial that will walk you through the steps of creating and using a Visual Ranking project.  Remember, you don't have to include all three thinking tools. 

2. If you've lost the resource cd with training files, PowerPoints, etc., you can find everything on the Course Updates site. click here  You may need to register to gain access to the site.

3.  After you've registered your course, ordered materials, and reviewed the course content, you are ready to introduce it to your students.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.  My contact information is at the bottom of this page.

 

If you've decided on the Essentials Course, here are some resources that will help you get started:
 

1.  When you teach the Essentials Course, you'll need to set up a wiki and a blog ahead of time.  There are some suggestions on the Rusty Trainer Resources page, The Essentials Course.

2.  Google Sites has the same characteristics as a wiki.  For directions on creating a site in Google Sites, click here.
