Integrating Technology and Creating Change as Teacher Leaders INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY TRACK: The M.Ed. in Teaching & Learning: Instructional Technology track is designed to provide teachers, trainers and technologists with advanced professional studies of the design, development, implementation and evaluation of current and emerging instructional technologies and their potential to improve teaching practice, professional productivity, and student performance. Program candidates complete a common core of Education coursework, plus an intensive specialization curriculum derived from the National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) published by ISTE and endorsed by NCATE. Candidates who complete this program track will be able to do the following: 1. Demonstrate understanding of instructional technology tools, systems, and operations 2. Plan and manage instructional technology innovations and environments 3. Design and develop creative learning experiences and materials supported by technology 4. Implement technology-integrated curriculum plans to improve student performance 5. Leverage technology to facilitate effective assessment and evaluation strategies 6. Understand social, ethical, and legal issues relevant to the use of instructional technology 7. Demonstrate commitment to improve professional practice and productivity 8. Exhibit leadership and collaboration in campus-level instructional technology initiatives COURSE OBJECTIVE: Students completing this course will have a foundational understanding of the theoretical principles and research-based best practices for instructional design in technology-integrated learning environments. Learning Outcomes are derived directly from the National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T), published by ISTE. CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK: The conceptual framework of all teacher preparation programs in the Spadoni College of Education is The Teacher as Reflective Practitioner. Through this framework, programs are directed toward the development of knowledge, skills, professional behaviors, and dispositions which will insure that all candidates are well prepared and meet all university, state, and national expectations of pre and in-service teachers at the completion of their respective programs of study. Intertwined in our professional unit are the INTASC Principles, NCATE standards, the state-mandated ADEPT framework, NBPTS Principles and nine of the Specialized Professional Associations standards.

3 STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES Students will be able to: 1) Design and implement developmentally appropriate learning experiences that apply technology enhanced instructional strategies to support the diverse needs of learners and promote higher-order thinking and creativity. 2) Plan and demonstrate strategies to manage safe and equitable access to technology resources within the context of teaching and learning activities. 3) Apply understanding of research-based best practices, as well as district-state-national technology standards to the design and evaluation of technologyenhanced learning experiences.

COURSE SCHEDULE: See Moodle for work schedule COURSE ASSESSMENTS: NETS(T) II.A-D NBPTS Core 3 NETS(T) V.A, V.C NBPTS Core 4 Assessment Plan Online Discussions 1. Assignments chapters 1-12 = 12 points each (120 points) 2. Online discussions 1-12= 5 points each (60 points) 3. Final paper = 20 points 4. Total = 200 points Ten point grading scale applies for final grades Assignments form text chapters 1-11 = 10 points each (110 points) Each lesson is from the text and will have a corresponding assignment from the text as well. Please see the Submit Assignments tab in Moodle for a description of each assignment. Online discussions 1-12= 5 points each (60 points) Each week there will be an online discussion which requires both an original post and a reply to a classmate. Please see the Discussions tab in Moodle for a description of each discussion. Final paper = 20 points There are three parts to the final paper: 1. A copy of an original non-technology based lesson 2. New and revised version of the lesson, showing your integration of technology throughout all parts of the lesson in meaningful and innovative ways this will include reflections on how/why technology decisions were made and what the expectations are as a result of making these changes 3. Assessment plan showing both alignment of the lesson objectives with the ISTE standards and the methods used to measure student learning with technology

5 You will completely redesign an existing lesson plan and identify areas for logical technology integration. This is a before and after paper which will present a lesson plan that does not incorporate technology and how you would reinterpret this lesson to be a technology-rich lesson throughout all areas of the lesson. You will show the original lesson and reflect on the ways in which you improved it using technology. This is a hypothetical project, and you are not limited by what is in your actual classroom or school. The purpose of this paper is to use technology tools you know and have learned to guide the instructional design of technology-rich learning experiences for a specific lesson. Students will investigate tools from our discussions, articles published in educational technology research journals, and any other technologies they can and then integrate practical strategies that an instructor could utilize to improve the design of learning experiences in a specific lesson. The project must include a description of the target student audience, the instructional objectives, the instructional content, the methods and materials for instructional delivery, the assessment techniques, and supporting rationales). The assessment plan for your redesign project delineates the strategies and tools necessary to verify that student-learning of instructional content will have occurred during the eventual implementation of your redesigned lesson sequence. A critical component of the plan will be an alignment matrix of the instructional objectives, state content standards, national technology standards, and the corresponding assessments. GRADES: Ten point grading scale applies for final grades Candidates in the M.Ed.
