Participants will learn about our state of the art, cloud-based approach to engineering education and how best to promote 21st century skills such as self-direction, initiative and problem solving within the classroom. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to integrate engineering into core academic subjects and learn strategies to seamlessly incorporate their academy’s work-based learning plan objectives into their courses. In addition, we will share information regarding Paxton/Patterson's innovative approach to assessment, remediation and Common Core alignment, demonstrating how we improve student learning and accountability while simultaneously providing greater flexibility to instructors.
