In this edWebinar, learn to use five ready-to-go free interactive lessons on preparing your students for the 21st-century economy! Through these lessons, students will engage in economics, personal finance, and the history of the economics of globalization and automation and the impact these have on their future careers.
The objective of this edWebinar is for teachers to leave with clear instructions for teaching an innovative week-long curriculum that empowers students to make informed education and career choices. (Curriculum available here: mru.org/globalizationandrobots.) Teachers will receive guidance on how to teach using the following: a free game, an interactive website, and a video.
This recorded edWebinar is highly interactive. The focus is on 3 days of the curriculum and will model how to teach it by sampling a few of the many interactive teaching activities used. Specifically, these models are discussed:
- How to open class with a game. After playing, post-game discussion will be modeled.
- How to use a video with embedded practice questions to enhance engagement.
- How to use a free interactive website to drive student engagement and learning.
- How to adapt curriculum to virtual teaching environment.
This recorded edWebinar will be of value to high school and higher education teachers and school and district leaders.
