Breaking Tradition: An Innovative Approach to Creating Future-Ready Learners  is a 5 week online course for practicing K-12 educators. This course will be facilitated by Amanda Morris, Technology Integration Specialist at Williamsburg James City County Schools. In this 5-week asynchronous online course, we will explore technologies and strategies for supporting the 5 C's (critical thinking, 
creative thinking,  collaboration,  communication and  citizenship) into your instruction. In 2016, the Virginia General Assembly established the Virginia Profile of a Graduate, obliging educators to provide educational programs and instructional models that facilitate the development of the skills needed for future-ready learners. Each week in this course will focus on one of the 5 C's. We'll explore the "C" in more depth, and will provide technologies and strategies that can help you plan for the deliberate integration of the 5 C's into your curriculum. Participants can expect to spend 4-6 flexible hours online each week to complete this course experience. Activities will include readings, asynchronous discussions, and resource explorations. Teachers who complete the course will receive a certificate indicating they have completed 30 hours of professional learning at William & Mary which they may apply toward recertification points. This course is most appropriate for middle and high school teachers, although teachers at any grade level are welcomed to register. The course fee is $150.
