Description:

Competency Area: Theoretical & Philosophical Foundations of Education
Required of and restricted to Experienced Educator students in the Educational Technology concentration through December 15; open to all students on December 16.
All course work will be conducted on-line.

This course builds a collaborative understanding of ‘next generation’ learning, its roots and its opportunities. We will explore when and how to use technology- and when not to. Includes some discussion of the brain’s response to ‘screen’ input at various developmental stages. This course will also help participants identify the technology available to them in their schools and learn about what this technology can do at its best, what’s the top level application of this device, tool, etc. (the state of the art in the field as it’s applied to student learning and research-based outcomes/practice).
