Perkins eLearning offers a variety of free webinars, including this recent webinar on the Expanded Core Curriculum with Robbin Clark. During this webinar, Robbin talks about ". . .the many benefits for teachers to upgrade their instructional practice to embrace 21st Century teaching."
In this webinar, Robbin shares about ECC assessments and how to use these assessments in lesson planning with upgraded teaching methods that align with today's students in the 21st Century classroom. Robbin looked at traditional ways of teaching ECC skills and gave examples of upgraded lessons. For example, the traditional cooking lesson was given an upgrade as students researched, ordered and used delivered meal kits.
Want to learn more about Robbin's virtual academies? Four of Robbin's students in her current virtual Transition Academy, have been blogging about their cooking experiences using meal delivery kits. These students openly share their successes and learning experiences along with cooking hints in their Paths to Technology Cooking without Looking series.
