The Primary Gifted classroom is home for students who have qualified for Second and Third grade gifted services. It is an e-MINTS classroom focusing on higher level thinking skills and integrated technology that is delivered through multi-disciplinary thematic units and inquiry-based activities.
The eMINTS National Center offers professional development programs created by educators for educators. Leading experts have collaborated to produce programs that
-inspire educators to use instructional strategies powered by technology
-engage students in the excitement of learning
-enrich teaching to dramatically improve student performance
Programs range from short-term, customized awareness sessions (including online options) to full school or organizational-wide implementations requiring a long-term commitment. Professional development geared to the needs and interests of preK-16 educators is delivered either by eMINTS staff or locally-based trainers who have completed eMINTS “train-the-trainer” certification.
Transforming preK-16 education through technology requires changes in the skill levels of both teachers and learners. Today’s students demand learning tasks that challenge and stimulate them as they use technology tools to acquire knowledge and skills for the 21st century.
eMINTS changes how teachers teach and students learn. Its instructional model provides a research-based approach to organizing instruction and can be implemented in any subject area at any level.
The eMINTS National Center is a collaborative program developed by the University of Missouri, Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the Missouri Department of Higher Education.
eMINTS began in Missouri - its name is an acronym for the project enhancing Missouri's Instructional Networked Teaching Strategies. Today eMINTS can be found in classrooms across the United States.
