NetAPT Module 1: Learner Assets and Needs

The first NetAPT module, Learner Assets and Needs, explores the teacher as a learner and the impact past experience has on current teaching.

    • Apply principles of the Model Code of Ethics for Educators to professional growth strategies. 
    • Identify the contributions of major educational theorists. 
    • Explain how knowledge and skills are generally constructed. 
    • Apply cognitive processing theories to target grade level/span. 
    • Describe the stages of each human development domain.  
    • Distinguish typical and atypical target grade level/span in relation to each domain of human development. 
    • Describe the impact development has on learning. 
    • Investigate educational background of target students.
    • Investigate personal and cultural characteristics of target students.
    • Devise plan for student/teacher interactions based upon student characteristics and developmental levels.
    • Using learning and development theories, predict target student learning and development needs.
