Banish ‘Bored-Room’ training by discovering the research-proven approaches and easy-to-use tools to bring your online, and in-person teaching into the connected era.
This course takes educators on a journey from Education island to the new e-Education island. Here educators will learn about the two sides of the island – the Digital Zone and the Connected Zone and why it is critical that we learn to teach in the Connected Zone. By being introduced to the ACT (Active Connected Teaching) pedagogies, educators are given a bridge to help transition to become effective, engaging, teachers. The course is packed with many examples of free tools that can be used to support Connected-era teaching and learning allowing educators to chart their own course towards effective 21st-century teaching.
On top of the course, you will also receive access to the following:
The Active Connected Teaching course is ideal for educators (teachers, lecturers, trainers) who are looking for approaches and tools to activate online teaching. While the focus of the course is on online (self-paced and live) teaching, the content can equally be applied to blended learning situations. The course assumes no prior understanding of online teaching approaches or tools.
The Active Connected Teaching Course includes full membership of the Activated Academy for one year, giving you access to the Digital Toolbox, support from lecturers and the community, and invitations to webinars and panel discussions.

The ACT Toolbox is your repository of “How-To” lessons. Here you can easily search for lessons on tools (e.g. Zoom) or topics (e.g. Curation). You can also browse by category (e.g. Google or Chaos), plus you can leave comments, suggestions, and new ideas.
This is not simply a digital toolbox of lessons, it is a growing, active, space to continue your learning journey as new lessons are added, tools are rated, and conversation is shared.
