Teaching Success Formula: Successful Teaching = Good Content + Great Teacher + Appropriate Pedagogy

Many teachers desperately try to adapt old approaches to new technologies, while others simply ignore pedagogy when it comes to technology. The bottom line is that there is no app for pedagogy! What we require is an appropriate digital age set of pedagogies.



"The Activated Classroom Teaching (ACT) approach is a cohesive set of digital-age pedagogies that leverage the affordances of technology to maximize learning while developing key 21st-century skills by encouraging a range of cognitive activity."

Based on years of research, the ACT pedagogies (teaching approaches) have transformed how teachers and instructors teach online all around the world. This course firstly shows you why it is important to change how we teach with technology, then practically shows you how to implement the ACT pedagogies in your classroom.

In this course you will:
  • Learn why so many people fail to effectively use technology to support teaching
  • Learn about the unique Activated Classroom Teaching approach
  • Learn how to implement each of the ACT pedagogies in your classroom using a range of free online tools

Using the ACT approach you will learn about the power of the five layers of the model.



Each layer introduces you to a powerful pedagogy (teaching approach) that you can easily implement in your teaching. Most current approaches to teaching with technology are built on the Consumption approach. This approach is simply replicating what we have always done, with an extra silicon coating on it. Technology enables us to do so much more. The ACT model, and it's 5 integrated pedagogies, unlock the power to develop key 21st-century skills in the modern classroom.

Should I choose ACT Primer or ACT Professional?
If you want a quick intro to the concepts and prefer timed-release content, then the ACT Primer is better suited to you. If you want to be exposed to a wider range of apps that you can use to support the various ACT pedagogies and prefer to choose sequence and timing then ACT Pro is suited to you.

All the matters is that you ACT - and transform how you teach with technology. Remember, there is no app for pedagogy
