Instructor: Mallack Walsh 3 Graduate Credits
Colorado State Course #501
In his theory of multiple intelligences, Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard suggests that “students possess different kinds of minds and therefore learn, remember, perform, and understand in different ways”. Visual/spatial intelligence is the ability to perceive, use, and understand images and patterns and to think in terms of physical space.
In this highly entertaining and engaging course, taught by a Google Certified Trainer, participants will explore tools that support visual/spatial teaching and learning. This course will provide participants with the knowledge necessary to foster 21st century communication with our students in all content areas. Participants will create lesson plans with creative web tools that aid in the creation of infographics, visuals, multimedia, and other digital products. Participants will collaborate and share their lessons with each other. Tools that will be investigated include PowToons, Google Drawings, PiktoChart, and ThingLink, among others.
This is a hybrid course with both face-to-face instruction, as well as online classwork.
This course has previously been approved for CONTENT.
