Expand cooperative learning through technology. In this course, you will explore three types of online cooperative experiences: tele-collaboration, WebQuests, and project-based learning.

As a final task, develop a teaching unit that employs one model, including both an assessment rubric and an implementation plan.
Apply new strategies to develop your students' problem-solving skills. Discover how technology can enhance their ability to state problems, pose questions, find answers, and, ultimately, approach learning as a continuous interaction with their world. Then, select a problem for your students to solve and craft a lesson plan that demonstrates the learning process.
