"Just wanted to let you know I presented my web project to the math department at my school today and they were so impressed. They also were anxious to know if it was up and running on our network yet.  Generally, they are a tough bunch to impress but they were all very complementary."

Students will explore the basic publishing process, the fundamental principles of typography, typesetting, design, and graphics to produce professional documents. Software for the class includes Adobe Acrobat, PhotoShop, PageMaker, and various Microsoft Office products. Students should have a working knowledge of the computer: Windows, Word, e-mail, etc.
     
  • ED 503 Special Topics: Integrating Technology Into Teaching
     
  • ED 503 Special Topics: Web-Based Instruction
     
  • ED 517 Computers for Teachers. The course emphasizes the function of the computer in an educational setting.

  •  ED 550 Software Development. Students will develop projects that incorporate lesson plans and modules to use in a classroom or training environment that support state and school technology standards. Can substitute for MATH 550.
     
  • ED 555 Software Development II.  A continuation of ED 550. Students will each design a unit of instruction consisting of a minimum of three web based lessons/modules that incorporate progressively challenging critical thinking activities and that illustrate progressive levels of technology integration. Each student will read and evaluate assigned materials; be prepared to discuss the pedagogy and its application to computer-based or web-based learning, and complete a project that demonstrates the incorporation of pedagogy and high end digital media applications that utilize both static and interactive exercises.
     
  • ED 570 Instructional Techniques in Computers in Education. Techniques of teaching computer programming languages, computer literacy and/or advanced computer topics. The utilization of the computer in the classroom and laboratory is covered. Current and future trends in the use of the computer in education are also examined. Students will develop and teach an interactive lesson from a current application software packages (dependent on availability) and include successes/failures of the integration of the lesson into the classroom as part of their final presentation.
     
  • ED 585 Educational Technology Applications: This course is designed to identify features of an online course, analyze relevant research and theory underlying online instruction, and develop an instructional unit based on an existing course in the studentís content area that integrates components of the Internet as a teaching/learning tool. A unit will consist of a minimum of three lessons and three modules.
     
  • ED 610 Digital Media and Educational Technology. Designed specifically for educators, students will design supplemental materials for a unit of instruction within their content area consisting of a minimum of three totally web-based modules that incorporate progressively challenging critical thinking activities and that illustrate progressive levels of technology integration. Each student will read and evaluate assigned materials; be prepared to discuss the pedagogy and its application to computer-based or web-based learning, and complete a project that demonstrates the incorporation of pedagogy and high end digital media applications that focus on interactivity.
     
  • ED 760 Developing Online Curriculum: This course is designed to identify features of an online course, analyze relevant research and theory underlying online instruction, and develop an instructional unit based on an existing course in the studentís content area that integrates components of the Internet as a teaching/learning tool. A unit will consist of five lessons/modules.

 

" I was in your ED 503 Integrating Technology into Teaching Class from the Summer.  (It was that one week class.) I wanted to let you know that the project you assigned has been a tremendous hit with the teachers and students at my assigned high school.
     To be honest with you, at the time you made the project assignment, I thought I would never use it.  However, again, I have been proven wrong.  The students have been engaged and focused plus the teacher is amazed at the amount of content knowledge retained by the students.

     Thanks for the ideas and the push to explore new approaches/techniques to instruction.  Your support is appreciated."
