For this week’s Spotlight on Strategies we are bringing you not one, but twelve new ideas. I had the privilege of working with educators from all over the country for the past seven weeks through the Discovery Education Wilkes University Instructional Media Program.
We explored a variety of ways to develop students’ minds through the use of digital media and took on our own Spotlight on Strategies challenge as part of the coursework. The projects are so rich, creative and practical that I just had to share them more broadly. Enjoy!
