21st Century eTeacher Resources are collected and presented by the National Institute of Aerospace and Nortel LearniT to develop and implement a pioneering model to prepare our nation's educators for a 21st century approach to teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM.) By focusing on the use of 21st century skills and strategies to meet the needs of our millennial students, NIA and Nortel LearniT train teachers to use experiential, inquiry-based teaching. Coupling NIA expertise in science, engineering, and mathematics with Nortel LearniT's technology integration resources creates a powerful environment for teachers to build and enhance their 21st century teaching skills and teaching techniques using the information and best practices in this resource collection. Each resource page provides direct access to ready-to-use technology integration resources, including videos, PowerPoint® presentations, documents, PDFs, URL's, and wiki references. Application of the Six Principles of 21st Century e-Teaching in meeting 21st century learners' needs is addressed throughout. To extend this, the pivotal role of technology infusion in effective use of the Nortel LearniT implementation of the 6ES constructivist model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate, Extend, and Standards) is treated in a section devoted to that topic. The main sections (subpages) are: e-Students: Who are the Millennials? What defines Best Practice? What 21st century skills and resources are needed to implement Best Practice in the use of instructional technology? Instructional models, including evolving the constructivist 5E model to 6ES with technology infusion. How do you assess and measure successful technology integration?
