The Learning Curve
NAGC Launches New Online Learning Portal

from NAGC

In January, NAGC will flip the switch on a new learning portal designed by gifted education professionals, college and university faculty, and online course development experts for all educators. The first course, "Differentiating Content and Instruction for High-Ability Learners: Using the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) or Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)" is six-week online course divided into four modules, and is not just for those who work specifically in gifted programs. The learning and community building extends beyond the six weeks, as participants will continue to share resources, information and knowledge in the online portal.

Stay tuned for the official "switch flipping," which will occur after the new year. Registration will be limited, so begin thinking about colleagues who are new to the CCSS or NGSS and/or need additional support and guidance for creating lessons and evaluating instructional materials. As one beta tester commented on the course, "It's a great way to get teachers to start thinking about the standards they teach and how they can handle them differently and plan purposefully for their gifted students." more
