Foundations of Mobile Learning

With so many uses, why do we not see amazing gains when schools adopt iPads and Mobile Devices into the Classroom? Current research and trends point to increasing problems with implementation and teacher knowledge. This course will examine best practices in Mobile Learning and how we can transition from a device centric model of implementation to a student led and directed plan for mobile learning (what I call the Bring Your Own Curriculum Model).

Welcome Colorado College Students and thank you for taking the journey to learn more about Mobile Learning.

Google Apps for Education

Many schools, districts, and businesses are making the change from traditional email systems (like Outlook) to Google Apps Suite or Google Apps for Education (GAFE). Once installed, GAFE is much more than a simple email solution and can act as a collaboration platform. As a free resource, GAFE provides resources and materials to educators that allows them to create collaborative classrooms and teams. Teachers can use GAFE to go paperless, to collaborate with schools around the world, and to get their students creating real world portfolios and projects.

Introduction to Education Technology (EdTech 101)

Flip, Integrate, Synthesize, Mobile, Online, Hybrid, 1-to-1, 1-to-web, BYOD… The constant ballad of technology change in education. Trends in Education Technology change rapidly, but the theories and methodologies for integrating those technologies remains the same. This course will explore the pedagogical background for Technology integration. Participants will examine current trends, evaluate technology standards, and apply their knowledge to a technology tool they will be using with students the following year.

During this course, students examine models of instruction that are conducive to integrating technology, including various approaches to differentiated instruction and assistive technology. Emphasis is on instructional skills including classroom management, student use of the technology, and effective pedagogical methods. Each student will apply their learning within their workplace to develop practical skills in technology implementation while still understanding and making considerations for legal and management implications.

At the conclusion of the week, students will produce a Unit Plan that integrates best practices in technology integration.
