Deeper Learning: Unpacking the 5 Cs is a 5 week online course for practicing K-12 educators In this 5-week asynchronous online course, we will explore technologies and strategies for supporting the 5 Cs (critical thinking, creative thinking,  collaboration,  communication and  citizenship) into your instruction. In 2016, the Virginia General Assembly established the Virginia Profile of a Graduate, obliging educators to provide educational programs and instructional models that facilitate the development of the skills needed for future-ready learners. Each week in this course will focus on one of the 5 Cs. We'll explore the "C" in more depth, and we will provide technologies and strategies that can help you plan for the deliberate integration of the 5 Cs into your curriculum. Participants can expect to spend 4-6 flexible hours online each week to complete this course experience. Activities will include readings, asynchronous discussions, and resource explorations.
