Understanding and Setting Up the MARIO Framework
March 7th – May 16th
Change is more profound
when it comes from within.
Participants will connect with other educators piloting, or planning to pilot, the MARIO Framework at their schools and engage in powerful weekly discussions that are inquiry-based and enriched through the use of Packback. Learners will create tools to use the framework within their particular context by selecting their assignments from a wide range of available projects or creating their own. In addition to instructor feedback, Peerceptiv software is utilized to help participants assess and give meaningful feedback to each other.
Unlike most online courses, participants will also have the opportunity to meet with their instructor via optional one-to-one video calls multiple times throughout the course. This is an invaluable way to address the issues that matter most to each learner.
Understanding and Setting Up the MARIO Framework is the first of two courses that lead to certification as an official MARIO Educator. After successful completion of the course, learners will be awarded six continuing education units (CEUs). Additionally, participants are eligible to enroll with SUNY Buffalo State University to earn up to three graduate credits.
Although the MARIO Framework was originally designed to be delivered in physical classrooms, we have learned that it is a first-rate virtual learning solution. Whether you plan on working with students in the classroom, online, or in a hybrid scenario, MARIO 101 will take your professional learning to the next level.
MARIO 101 starts on March 7th and finishes on May 16th.
