Logical Operations, the world’s leading publisher of instructor-led technology training curriculum, has adapted its Modern Classroom Certified Trainer (MCCT®) program to help high school and college educators make the transition from traditional classroom delivery to virtual instruction. Logical Operations has powered the movement from traditional instructor-led training to virtual instruction for trainers all over the world, and is now bringing the class preparation and delivery techniques covered in MCCT to high school and college educators pushed into virtual instruction due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The MCCT class, delivered in 3.5 hours, is a good fit for all trainers, educators, and virtual presenters who are eager to transition to the world of virtual instruction. This course is taught using Zoom, a teleconferencing tool that, according to Forbes Magazine, has offered its platform free to K-12 teachers due to COVID-19 school shutdowns. Learning to use a free tool will dramatically impact virtual instruction accessibility and improve outcomes for teachers and students alike.
Over 250 educators from four continents have already taken this online course in the last week. Logical Operations has scheduled additional classes to meet demand.
Barbara Seaver, Virtual Technology Instructor and class participant commented, “I’ve been doing virtual training for years, but now I will be able to do a much better job with what I learned today. That was amazing!”
The Modern Classroom Certified Trainer program focuses on three key areas of online instruction:
- The role of technology—while a face-to-face instructor might use technology, in the virtual classroom, technology becomes the main platform.
- Engaging learners—different strategies are needed to engage and build a rapport with learners the instructor cannot see.
- Multitasking—instructors need to simultaneously present, engage learners, and use the technology platform.
“As schools and businesses adjust to the new reality of a virtualized society, we have to give our teachers the tools to transition to online instruction. While many classroom skills transfer to the virtual landscape, there is a whole new set of challenges that emerge, like maintaining student engagement, asynchronous lesson planning, and technical troubleshooting. This class can give high school and college teachers those skills and many more,” said Jon O’Keefe, Technology Education Jedi at Logical Operations.
To make the MCCT program affordable for high school and college educators impacted by the coronavirus, Logical Operations is offering the class at a 90% discount. To learn more about MCCT and view upcoming classes, visit http://mcctcertified.com/.
