3 University and College of Education Policies LiveText: LiveText is a web-based system that supports student and instructor sharing of learning materials. GCSU College of Education has adopted LiveText as the vehicle for collection and management of student learning data for accreditation purposes. That is, LiveText is the means for student submission and instructor evaluation of assignments and portfolios required for program assessment. All students in the program must purchase and maintain access to a LiveText account throughout the program. Honor Code: All students are expected to abide by the requirements of the Georgia College & State University Honor Code as it applies to all academic work at the University. Students are strongly warned against any form of academic dishonesty. This includes, but is not limited to, failing to cite work of other authors and representing the work of others as your own. Any student who violates the honor code will fail this course and be referred to the Judicial Council. The Honor Code may be found at Accommodation Requests: If you have a disability as described by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504, you may be eligible to receive accommodations to assist in programmatic and physical accessibility. Disability Services of the GCSU Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity can assist you in formulating a reasonable accommodation plan and in providing support in developing appropriate accommodations needed to ensure equal access to all GCSU programs and facilities. requirements will not be waived, but accommodations may assist you in meeting the requirements. For documentation requirements and for additional information, we recommend that you contact Disability Services located in Maxwell Student Union at or Official documentation as provided by GCSU s Disability Services must be presented to the instructor in order to receive accommodations. Any student with a disability requiring accommodations should notify the instructor at the beginning of the semester. An appointment should be made with the instructor at the beginning of the semester to discuss accommodation needs for the course. Diversity: The College of Education recognizes that society is a unique mixture of diverse individuals. Diversity encompasses issues of gender, race, age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, ability, color, country of origin and more. The COE values and respects the diversity of individuals and seeks to prepare students who will be capable of working effectively with individuals of varying characteristics. The COE will seek to provide learning experiences, both within and outside of the classroom which will foster understanding and appreciation of diversity in our students and will provide strategies to help students work effectively with diverse individuals in professional settings. Fire Drills: Fire drills will be conducted annually. In the event of a fire alarm, students will exit the building in a quick and orderly manner through the nearest hallway exit. Learn the floor plan and exits of the building. Do not use elevators. If you encounter heavy smoke, crawl on the floor so as to gain fresh air. Assist disabled persons and others if possible without endangering your own life. Assemble for a head count on the front lawn of main campus or other designated assembly area. The COE has two designated areas: the east parking lot across the street from the atrium and the parking lot west of Peabody close to the White House for Human Resources.
4 For more information on other emergencies, please visit: Religious Observance Policy: Students are permitted to miss class in observance of religious holidays and other activities observed by a religious group of which the student is a member without academic penalty. Exercising of one s rights under this policy is subject to the GC Honor Code. Students who miss class in observance of a religious holiday or event are required to make up the coursework missed as a result from the absence. The nature of the make-up assignments and the deadline for completion of such assignments are at the sole discretion of the instructor. Failure to follow the prescribed procedures voids all student rights under this policy. Student Opinion Surveys: Given the technological sophistication of Georgia College students, the student opinion survey is being delivered through an online process. Your constructive feedback plays an indispensable role in shaping quality education at Georgia College. All responses are completely confidential and your name is not stored with your responses in any way. In addition, instructors will not see any results of the opinion survey until after final grades are submitted to the University. An invitation to complete the online opinion survey is distributed to students near the end of the semester. Your participation in this very important process is greatly appreciated. Outline of Content Background Checks: All students in pre-education or initial certification programs must give permission for annual background checks. If the background check is returned with the statement does have a criminal background, then that student is not allowed to attend any field placements until a meeting is held with the assistant dean. At that meeting background results are discussed, and next steps for each individual are outlined. Students whose background checks reveal felony convictions or misdemeanor moral turpitude convictions will not be allowed to enter or continue programs. This course will contain a mixture of lecture as well as hands-on experience with the creation of technology related projects that can be implemented in a K-12 classroom. This semester will include information on digital video editing, online teaching and learning, as well as developing a professional website.
5 Assessment Overview Your grades will be derived from the following: Assignments Points Class Participation and Attendance 50 Digital Video 100 Professional Website 100 Online Teaching & Learning 100 Total Possible Points 350 Prior to mid-semester, you will receive feedback on your academic performance in this course. Your grade in this course will be based on the following: A = % of total possible points B = 80-89% of total possible points C = 70-79% of total possible points D = 60-69% of total possible points F = 0-59% of total possible points Assessment Instructions and Grading Rubrics Digital Video Editing Your final assignment in technology is to film, edit, and produce a digital video of 3-5 minutes in length. This video must be educational in nature and be well-edited. Using either MovieMaker or imovie, you should be able to create a project that is entertaining while at the same time developing skills that you will use in your own classroom. The concept of integrating digital video with traditional content is one that has gained a great deal of traction over the past several years, and classes are regularly creating videos and uploading them to websites such as Teachertube and Schooltube. Keep this in mind as you develop your own video and begin the editing process. Professional Website Using a website like Weebly, you will build a professional online teaching portfolio that you can use to showcase your abilities to future employers. This website needs to be thorough and cover all of the essential components expected of a teacher candidate. Doing well on this project can only benefit you in the long run, so invest your time wisely on this. Online Teaching & Learning This project will provide you with the state-mandated skills and experience involving teaching and learning in an online environment. We will use either Schoology or Edomodo for these courses, and you will be required to develop your own materials and teach with them.
