EDU 501 Integrating Technology into Teaching
3 Semester Units
Integrating Technology into Teaching reflects the need for a new kind of teaching resource in which the perspective is not just on the electronic technologies, which change rapidly, but on the principles underlying the teaching strategies they make possible, which are more stable. The emphasis is on learning both the skills in using equipment and software, as well as on how to integrate these resources into daily classroom activities. In addition, this discussion of technology integration strategies is linked to both learning theories and effective classroom practices.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Analyze appropriate Internet resources to use in designing curriculum.
- Critique technology trends that will shape learning environments in the future.
- Assess popular uses for technology in the curricula for language arts, foreign language, science, math, social studies, art, music, health, and special education.
