I have learned about the COVA approach through my courses at Lamar University. If you want to learn more about the COVA approach, Dr. Dwayne Harapnuik, a professor at Lamar, has a great blog post describing this approach in further detail. Interested in the COVA approach eBook? Dr. Harapnuik also provides a link here to the COVA eBook written by Dwayne Harapnuik, Tilisa Thibodeaux and Cynthia Cummings.
Resources to help inspire & implement the COVA approach into your classroom:
Personalize your Learning Environment by Barbara Bray & Kathleen McClaskey
"Most Likely To Succeed is a feature-length documentary examining the history of education in the United States and revealing the growing shortcomings of conventional education methods in today’s innovative world."
This documentary reminds me of the COVA approach. There are many connections with giving students Choice, Ownership, Voice and an Authentic Learning Experience.
