We all work hard to teach, but are we teaching smart? Teaching smart helps students take greater care and control of their learning, online or face-to-face. We’ll discuss some reasons how and why we should teach smart from creating intentional spaces to utilizing technology better. Using examples from National Geographic Learning’s digital support materials, we’ll look at a range of intentional spaces where learners can holistically acquire better communication skills for fluency and confidence.
