Course Description

EDUC 438/638: Learning Technologies Across the Curricula

The purpose of this course is to develop a deep understanding of technology integration across the various content areas. Guided by the framework of technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK), candidates negotiate the relationships between technology, pedagogy, and content, thereby building an understanding of how technology can support active and constructive learning.

This course is organized into a series of modules that are presented to you via the Web. The modules are attached to a collabsible menu that organizes the modules in roughly the same order in which they will be discussed in class. You need not complete these modules in this prescribed order, however. Rather, you can work through the course at your own pace, skipping modules that do not interest you, and spending more time on those that do.

Assignments

Your grade in this course will be based on your performance on a series of assignments that appear on this online syllabus. At any time, you can view the assignments. This list of assignments provides you with a snapshot of what you need to do in this course. All the rest is optional. It is totally up to you how much of the other material you will want to complete. Your instructor will help guide you, depending on the topics you choose to pursue.

Grading

You will receive grades on three kinds of activities. First, there are communication assignments that involve you in online discussions with your fellow classmates and your instructor. Second, you will propose and make a presentation in class about one of the learning technologies included in this course. Third, using tools of your choosing, you will design an intervention or curriculum that helps people learn something. These three parts of the course each constitute a third of your final grade.
