Description: This course is for teachers of High School students in Alternate Assessment whose goals focus specifically on expanding communication, social and life skills. Students selected to participate in the Virtual World must be able to use a computer keyboard and mouse and have basic verbal communication skills in order to benefit from the program. Teachers attending the workshop commit to participation in the 3D World Curriculum for the school year, including planning and executing weekly online learning sessions supported by in-world staff, as well as the related lessons and activities in the physical classroom and the real-world community. Certain technology requirements must be met in order to participate. Schools participating for the first time must contact Cara Coffina before the workshop to ensure that technology requirements can be met. Course Requirement: Participants will need to facilitate weekly in-world community sessions as well as at least 2 additional periods of related instruction per week. Participants will also attend a mid-year Refresher PD where they will have an opportunity to hone their virtual world skills, ask questions, troubleshoot, and learn and share new strategies for implementing the program successfully.
