The Intel® Teach Program engages both teachers and students in the development of 21st century skills and the integration of technology for teaching and learning. Teachers and students collaborate, analyze the quality of information, problem-solve, and communicate using online resources and technology tools.
Using these 21st century skills with the Essentials Course curriculum, teachers develop a project-based unit of instruction aligned to standards with multiple forms of student assessment (formative and summative).
As teachers progress through this course, they collaborate with other teachers and discuss ideas for both introducing and using technology in the classroom. Participating teachers develop a specific unit plan based upon material they are teaching. The goal is for each teacher to leave the course prepared to effectively implement a technology-rich Unit Portfolio that engages students in effective use of technology to achieve standards.
The result is students engaged in standards-aligned, technology-supported projects that promote the use of 21st century skills.
