The Intel® Teach Thinking with Technology Course builds on effective technology integration skills. Teachers use free online tools to support the development and assessment of their students' higher-order thinking skills.
Through Thinking with Technology, teachers learn instructional strategies for addressing and assessing higher-order thinking skills, using technology to support deeper understanding of core content. The goal is for teachers to leave the course with a standards-based unit plan, support materials, and implementation strategies to improve and assess students' higher-order thinking with the use of free online tools.
Teachers use the following free online tools to sharpen students' higher-order thinking skills:
Courses are offered one of two ways:
- for Master Trainers (MTs)—those who conduct professional development and plan to train at least 10 others, and
- for Participants—those who want to learn about the tools and apply them to their course content.
INTEL is re-formatting the MT training into a modular based training program, so this is not currently available, however, the Participant training is varied in availability and the length is flexible based on the tools included (24-40 hours, face-to-face). The Participant opportunities are conducted at a district level, and provide a variety of opportunities across the state.
