Welcome to the 8-Bit Instructor!
The idea behind the 8-Bit Instructor is simple: to create an authentic learning environment for you and your students. Creating a classroom where students and teacher feel like they belong goes a long way in improving engagement and learning. The 8-Bit Instructor theory follows the COMIC principle.
Building strong, positive relationships with students is key in keeping them engaged and motivated.
Optimize Class Time
Utilize time in class to engage students in work and activities that require your guidance.
Take advantage of student and teacher strengths and personal traits to create a unique learning environment.
Technology doesn’t have to rule your classroom, but utilizing technology can allow students to be creative and produce quality results.
Providing students with challenging situations can push them into moving beyond their normal learning experience.
