Spies Like Us: Developing an Age-Appropriate Online Enrichment Program For High Ability Students

Friday, November 10
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: 212 B

This session describes the creation and implementation of the first in a series of three MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) developed specifically for the enrichment of high-ability students. The course, called “Spies Like Us,” is adapted from a successful face-to-face course developed and implemented in a program designed for high-ability elementary students. We preview the course, provide information about how students and teachers may access this and other free courses, and provide some lessons learned for others considering creating their own MOOCs.
