About Course

Technology has presented educators and students alike with many opportunities to engage and, therefore, much more to manage. From elementary to college, students remain distracted in virtual classrooms—or completely disengaged—as instructors find themselves competing with what youth perceive to be more entertaining on social media, cell phones, or activities within the comfort of home. Becoming Cage Free in Your Teaching will help instructors:

  • Incorporate entertainment and social skills into academic content and,
  • Facilitate classroom discussion that yields further inquiry.

This course is comprised of interactive sessions to include an assessment at the end of each session, the Cage Free AR2E Lesson Plan Template, a 27-page Becoming Cage Free workbook, Caged vs. Cage Free Assessment and culminating Becoming Cage Free presentation to be presented at the National Partnership for Educational Access in 2022.
