Template for Synchronous LearningThe first template was developed for synchronous learning, which requires young people to meet virtually in real time via platforms such as Zoom, Google Hangout, or Microsoft Teams. Guided by MPC's learning objectives (PDF), the template includes a very basic, customizable PowerPoint presentation for each module and a script (in Word) that clearly indicates when and how to engage young people in activities using the platform's interactive features.
Template for Asynchronous LearningThe second template was developed for asynchronous learning using Google Classroom as the online platform. Young people will work on their own through the curriculum, module by module, submitting assignments for each module.
The template is designed for young people to work individually, but it can also accommodate a combined asynchronous/synchronous format. The Google Classroom platform includes interactive features like chats, real-time group sessions, and email contacts with group members. Access to these interactive features may vary among implementation sites. If educators can access these features, they can modify the template and indicate the additions in their virtual implementation plan.
Access to the MPC Google Classroom template is by invitation only. Please contact Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org.
