"Upon my completion of this program, I take away a vast collection of knowledge and resources that have changed my perceptions about the learning process. This program provided a platform for great exploration with Web 2.0 tools and technology, differentiated learning principles, the use of media within the classroom, and cognitive theory for effectively processing information. I leave this program with valuable tools, skills, and, most importantly, desire to utilize these lessons in a constructive way for the betterment of 21st century education."
“This program is giving me the opportunity to focus on essential topics relevant to my job. I now have a deeper understanding of project based learning and using technology to support differentiated instruction, as well as the impact that globalization will have on our need to redefine what it means to learn in the 21st century. I feel more prepared to lead teachers in my district.”
“I chose the Wilkes program because of its immersive quality; participants have the opportunity to actually engage in learning experiences that students will ultimately be engaged in themselves, providing us with the unique chance to see the learning from our students’ eyes.”
“Courses are designed to help educators feel comfortable with the tools necessary to bring classroom instruction to the 21st century. The university’s collaboration with Discovery Education solidified my respect for the program, as I have been using Discovery Education’s educational tools and resources for years.”
"I really felt like I owed it to myself to get this degree, to learn how to use technology in my classroom. For me, technology is something that really helps me learn and keeps me engaged and I wanted to transmit that to my students."
"I've had some great experiences with the course. I came away with things that I can really use in my class and I can see how these technology tools can be put together in a combination of projects and really benefit students and meet their individual needs."
"I would absolutely recommend this program, because it really brings 21st century teaching, methodology and tools to teachers who really need them to be 21st century teachers and to meet the needs of our students today."
