Course Highlights

Class is three weeks, five-10 hours a week, including a weekend Google Hangout or Twitter Chat each week.

During the week, review lesson plans, ebooks, articles, and videos that address the weekly class topics. Complete activities (blog posts, comments, Tweets, and a weekly project).

Weekends, address overarching issues in a group setting via Google Hangouts or Twitter Chat. Questions you'll discuss with classmates include "Tech problems in your classroom and how you solved them" and "How to authentically use technology".

Need help on a topic not addressed? Arrange 1:1 time with instructors.

At the course end, receive a certificate of achievement to validate accomplishments including all the topics in which you completed required work.

How Class Works

Each week, review materials on themed activities including webinars, short articles, sample lessons plans, and ebooks. Complete one weekly project using what you learned which you add to your digital portfolio via screenshots, screencasts and/or embeds. Reflect on them, share, and provide feedback to classmates through blogs, forums, wikis, and Twitter #hashtags. Track your progress via a Google Spreadsheet (link provided).

Weekends, meet with classmates and the coach on Google Hangouts (GHO) or a Twitter Chat to discuss the activities, answer questions, and discuss overarching topics like "How do you turn students into good digital citizens".

Who Needs This

This course is designed for educators who:

  • Are serious about integrating tech into their class
  • Worry about integrating tech into their class
  • Want creative approaches to using tech
  • Want to go to the next step of tech-infusing their classroom and/or school

The Tech-infused Teacher is a three week eighteen-hour interactive course on the most popular tech ed topics. These are the ones you've heard about, seen--want to use in your class if only you knew how to do that. It blends technology with teaching to build a collaborative, differentiated, and shared learning environment. In this three-week course, you use a suite of digital tools to leverage change while addressing overarching concepts like digital citizenship, internet search and research, authentic assessment, digital publishing, and immersive keyboarding. You actively collaborate with classmates, sharing knowledge and providing constructive feedback, while you learn to publish digitally and solve common class tech problems. Classmates will become the core of your ongoing Professional Learning Network.

Assessment is project-based so be prepared to be fully-involved and an eager risk-taker.
