Description: This course is for teachers of High School students in 8:1:1 and 12:1:1 Alternate Assessment programs whose goals focus specifically on expanding social, communication, employment, and life skills. Students selected to participate in 3D World must be able to use a computer keyboard and mouse and have basic verbal communication skills in order to benefit from the program. Teachers attending the workshop commit to participation in the 3D World Curriculum for the school year, including planning and executing weekly online learning sessions supported by in-world staff, as well as the related lessons and activities in the physical classroom and the real-world community. Technology requirements: each student must have access to a desktop or laptop computer (Headsets with microphone can be provided). At this time, the program is not compatible with iPads, Chromebooks or other tablets. Schools participating for the first time must contact Cara Coffina before the workshop to ensure that technology requirements can be met. Course Requirement: Participants will need to facilitate weekly in-world community sessions as well as at least 2 additional periods of related instruction per week. Participants will also attend a mid-year Refresher PD where they will have an opportunity to hone their virtual world skills, ask questions, troubleshoot, and learn and share new strategies for implementing the program successfully.
