Binge Teaching

You’re a pro at binge-watching a Netflix series and can sit through a marathon of your favorite TV show, but how good are you at teaching to a generation who can play Pokemon Go, tweet their every step and Snapchat what they had for breakfast? This class will give you the armor for engaging the selfie and hashtag generation. Discover ways to flip your classroom into a learning-based environment and start embracing the technologies your students are craving. You’ll learn how emotional intelligence can mold your lesson plans and you’ll bring excitement back into the classroom.
