WHAT DOES THIS COURSE OFFER?
Have you ever wondered how you could incorporate technologies that your students use on a daily basis to enhance your instruction? Would you like to work with fellow teachers to develop web-based projects and technology strategies that you can actually apply in your classes?
Teaching with Technology will give you the opportunity to learn about different web-based resources that you can use to improve your students' writing and get them excited about learning. This class will provide interactive instruction designed to inspire imaginative approaches to incorporating these resources. Everything you do for this class will center on the classes you are currently teaching (or ones that you'll be teaching in the future), so you'll be developing applications you can actually use.
WHAT TYPES OF ASSIGNMENTS ARE THERE?
In this course, you won't be writing any traditional academic papers. You'll get the opportunity to design lessons and assignments that incorporate web-based resources--including wikis, prezis, blogs, videos, and brainypics--that move beyond dated PowerPoint presentations. You'll have the opportunity to be creative with your work, and most projects you'll workshop in small groups to further refine and develop them.
