Kamehameha Schools distance learning is once again offering free online classes for educators. The courses are in order and have a culture-based education theme. You must take them in order which is why they run concurrently, from January 21 – May 9.
Level 1: Culture-based Online Curriculum for Educators
I completed this one. It gives you resources for culture units and asks you to incorporate three units into your curriculum (leadership, makahiki, ohana, etc.), gather student evidence and reflection, and create a portfolio. I borrowed Jerelyn’s social studies class and integrated three “units” into one social studies unit. Doable.
Level 2: 21st Century Technologies and CBE
Level 3: E-Learning for Educators
If you are interested, go to the following link and register by December 1:
Also, you earn B credits through KS, so if you go to MLP, the course is already written up for you. Just go to the District Calendar.
