INGENUITY TEACHER TRAINING
Qualified teachers attend a three day workshop where they learn new hands-on teaching techniques they can use immediately in their classrooms. Teachers learn the Ingenuity methodology of engaging students and transforming content into understanding. Workshops can be scheduled by the teacher’s school or through attendance at one of our scheduled training sessions.
WHAT IS INGENUITY?
Ingenuity is project-based learning emphasizing 21st Century Skills: creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. Teachers apply the Ingenuity method by having students work in small groups to solve science and engineering problems with measurable results. Ingenuity improves student learning by identifying multiple solutions, building physical models, testing the models, how to evaluate the models, and report results. In the three day workshop, teachers will receive science and engineering activities to bring back to their classroom.
The Ingenuity process makes students responsible for their learning. It also frees up the teacher to teach one-on-one as learning opportunities arise. And, Ingenuity allows teachers to improve their teaching skills while accelerating student learning.
Teachers leave our Ingenuity workshop knowing how to prepare their students for the 21st century work environment and knowing a set of specific hands-on activities they can use in their classrooms. They also learn how to excite students so they want to learn.
Teachers receive digital copies of background information and student worksheets they can use in the classroom. On-line support is provided on a continuing bases for one year following training.
The effectiveness of the Ingenuity approach allows teachers to be trained in a short period of time and to start using and sharing their teaching skills immediately.
INGENUITY MASTER TEACHER CERTIFICATION
After successfully completing the three day Ingenuity workshop, teachers submit a portfolio on-line for evaluation. The portfolio will include self-assessment of classroom delivery of the Ingenuity method an a new learning activity developed by the teacher. These newly developed activities will be evaluated by current Master Teachers.
Teachers with accepted portfolios are eligible to complete an on-line final exam to demonstrate their grasp of concepts and readiness to begin training other teachers. Teachers who have successfully demonstrated their knowledge and proficiency, and who have submitted an acceptable portfolio will be certified by Entrepreneur Pathways, Inc. as Ingenuity Master Teacher Trainers.
