The Buffalo Write Clicks Program will place an Instructional Technology coach with an elementary grade teacher for a period of up to 20 instructional days to focus primarily on the creation of a high quality, technology embedded, unit of learning. This unit will focus mainly on Grades 4 through 6 Social Studies and will include:
- 21st Century Skills
- ELA Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS)
- Elements of constructivist principles
- Mobile device integration, including both iPads and Windows 8 tablets
It is expected that at the conclusion of each project engagement, students will have created a Common Core aligned project incorporating advanced research skills and 21st Century Skills. Teachers will have been mentored through this process by an Instructional Technology Coach, and the skills acquired by the teacher will be replicable for them in the future.
