Course Description

Effectively Embed Technology into Your Learning and Assessment Activities

In today’s ever-expanding universe of educational technologies, the newest and brightest technology object in the sky may not be the best catch for next semester’s curriculum redesign. This course is designed to ground classroom teachers to approach and explore new technologies in calibration with their mission. The course activities provide a purposeful and directed path through the galaxies of different technologies and a steady course for making informed decisions based on learning goals. Participants will rethink and leverage current tools, platforms, and classroom teaching, combined with best practices in integrating new technologies and applications for their students. At the end of this course, participants will emerge not only with a cluster of tools orbiting their classroom needs, but also a chart for meaningful technology integration.

This course can be taken individually and as part of the Blended Learning Strategies for the Classroom Series, the Professional Teachers Program Series, and the Learning and Teaching in a K-12 Digital Classroom Series.

This course has been revised with a new course title and edited course description (formerly Web Apps in Education).
