Students Taking Charge: Inside the Learner-Active, Technology-Infused Classroom focuses on increasing academic rigor, fostering student engagement, and increasing student responsibility for learning. Teachers and administrators who recognize the needs of today's society and students, and their impact on teaching and learning, can use this book to create student-centered classrooms that make technology a vital part of their lessons. Filled with practical examples and step-by-step guidelines, Students Taking Charge will help educators design innovative learning environments that allow students to take ownership of learning so they can achieve at high levels and meet the rigorous requirements of state standards. These innovative learning environments also empower students through problem-based learning and differentiation, where students pose questions and actively seek answers. Computer technology is then used seamlessly throughout the day for information, communication, collaboration, and product generation. Check out the learner-active classroom in action!
