This course was designed with one goal in mind: to support your work as a teacher. True technology integration isn’t about taking students into a computer lab for 45 minutes every Monday or throwing a webquest into the middle of a math unit. Businesses use technology every day to be more efficient or effective with what they are trying to accomplish, and we want to look at technology in education that same way.
Because of that, we aren’t going to show you a million different applications or tools- instead, we are going to focus on what you are already doing in your classroom (collaboration, communication, resource acquisition, behavior management, content delivery, and assessment), and show you a few ways that you can make those tasks more efficient through increased access, organization, and/or automation.
