EdTech Courses - MAT: ($786 per credit; $500 to audit)

A foundation course covering the theory and history of educational technology. Topics will include cognitive psychology, human development with a focus on child and adolescent development, adult learning, learning theories and curriculum design. This class will also study key luminaries, significant theorists, and industry organizations including a focus on ISTE standards. While investigating different learning frameworks, students will create and evaluate their own style of instructional design, and develop an educational technology unit.

An introduction to the pedagogy, tools, skills, and practices behind maker-centered learning. Participants will complete design challenges and visit makerspaces in their area, and complete a range of hands-on projects from 'kits' to "open makes." Readings and discussion will focus on research around maker-centered learning. Students will complete and present a final project via a portfolio format that provides written and media evidence of personalized learning through making.

This course covers the different ways that assistive technologies are used to enhance the education of students with learning differences. Students will learn how to integrate assistive technologies that support specific learning strategies by using the tools themselves and by studying how those with learning differences use them. Highlighted techniques will include traditional assistive technology software (e.g., Kurzweil, Dragon NaturallySpeaking); embedded features of high use software (e.g., Microsoft Office, Inspiration, Adobe); cloud-based applications (e.g., Google, Evernote); ADA compliance, Universal Design best practices, and Assistive Tech on mobile apps for phones and tablets.

By the end of the class, students will be able to present a good or bad financial scenario to a board of directors and to staff with clarity and confidence.

In this introductory course, students learn the application of standard project management processes.
