Using Instructional Technology and Media to Improve Student Achievement
This course will offer a systematic, yet very enaging, approach for using technology and media to improve student achievement in the 21st century. This approach is based on the ASSURE model, which helps teachers plan effective, integrated lessons following a six-step process. This course will explore both traditional technologies and innovative, cutting-edge approaches to selecting, using, and evaluating instructional technology and media in order to improve student achievement. Participants will take pre- and post-tests in order to measure growth. The course culminating project will include a unit plan that will include a series of lesson plans that integrate technology and media using research-based approaches that will improve student achievement.
Class Assignments: Assignments include viewing lesson presentations and writing reflections; sharing and discussing important concepts in discussion boards, blogs and wikis; job-embedded assignments; and a summative assessment in the form of a mentoring plan will count as the final project. Additionally, a pre- and post-test will be administered in order show progress.
Any teacher who is interested in using instructional technology and media to increase student achievement.
