Instructor Knapp’s educational technology products help teachers implement 21st century educational tools that improve learning outcomes for all students. Building a flexible, personalized, online learning environment (with embedded support for struggling and/or non-traditional students) supports educators’ shift toward student-centered curriculum and challenges students to take charge of learning in the classroom.
These cloud-based, “plug-and-play” digital learning guides are designed with busy educators’ needs in mind. Sequenced, scaffolded curriculum balances formative and summative assessment through applied learning activities and mini-lectures that utilize the “flipped” educational framework. Closed captioned, view-do micro video lectures and text-based lessons coupled with inclusive, multi-modal teaching strategies delivered via both print and digital formats check all the boxes required by Common Core, Active-Learning and Trauma-Informed Educational models. Built in “metacognitive” reflections embed socio-emotional learning, leadership, ethics and teamwork principals.
