Student Engagement with Online Technology - EDUC 6992A (2 credits) Online

How do we assist K-12 students in developing information literacy? How do students benefit from the use of online technology tools? How can online tools be used to enhance student engagement and their active learning? How can we integrate online tools into our teaching? This workshop will help you reflect on the roles various online tools or applications may play in the teaching process and how you can better engage students in your classroom with them. You will brainstorm, share and experiment with some of the tools potentially applicable in today's schools. In addition, you will be exposed to theories and research about educational technology and teachers’ perceptions about it. The utilization and evaluation of various technologies and their appropriateness for the curriculum will be emphasized. Drill and practice with the technological tools will be necessary to reach a high degree of competence.
