2 Course Description We will meet on campus twice, Monday, March 26 and Monday, April 23, from 8:10 p.m. to 10: 00 p.m. in King Hall C2092. At these 2 class meetings and during the intervening 4 weeks students will complete assignments that demonstrate competency in knowledge and skills related to educational technology. Successfully completed demonstration projects will show that you can use current computer hardware, storage media, multimedia technology, and complete projects using current word processing, spreadsheet, database, desk publishing, multimedia, , and internet software. To successfully complete EDIT 300, students must attend both the March 26 and April 23 Monday class meetings from 8:10 to 10:00 p.m., successfully compile a portfolio of assigned software projects, and fully participate in all class activities. Students must pass EDIT 300 to be eligible for higher level Charter College of Education courses in educational technology. Educational Objectives Students will complete assignments that demonstrate technology compentency in the following 4 areas: 1. Computer vocabulary and terminology related to various computer and peripheral hardware components such as the CPU, storage devices, monitors, printer, scanner, projection devices, and random access memory (RAM). 2. Network and internet vocabulary and terminology related to various network hardware and software components. file:///c /Documents%20and%20Settings/Robert%20Sandberg/My%20Documents/!!!!RAS/!Websites/working-instructional/pages/Courses/EDIT300_spr07/default.html (2 of 14)3/22/2007 2:28:56 PM

3 3. Basic multimedia and digital graphics vocabulary and terminology related to working with digital media. 4. The main features and uses of the most widely-used types of computer application programs: word-processing, database, spreadsheet, presentation, multimedia, authoring, and telecommunications. Course Requirements To successfully complete this course, you must: 1) Complete a portfolio of assigned projects, submitting work both digitally ( , USB Flash drive) and as printed hardcopy. Word-Processing, Spreadsheet, and Presentation Projects files of completed projects to Include your name, course name, and project name in the subject and/or body of the .

9 Text and Supplies Recommended Texts For learning the software Any MS Office book or workbook that matches the version of MS Office you are using. Most bookstores will have many to choose from. Technology and Subject Standards All of the technology standards and California subject standards are available through this website. Just click the Education Standards link at the left. The California Standards for given subjects are mostly PDF files which should open automatically when clicked. When you get to the ISTE website for technology standards, click the Student Profiles link on the left to find the technology standards for specific grade level. Required Supplies You should have a USB flash drive that will hold at least 512 megabytes. The prices on these have fallen a lot, so your best choice would be 1 gigabyte or larger. These are the best devices for saving and storing your work -- much cheaper than Zip cartridges and far more durable than floppies. You can find USB flash drives at stores like CompUSA, Best Buy, Frys, and various office supply stores like Office Depot and Staples. file:///c /Documents%20and%20Settings/Robert%20Sandberg/My%20Documents/!!!!RAS/!Websites/working-instructional/pages/Courses/EDIT300_spr07/default.html (9 of 14)3/22/2007 2:28:56 PM

12 show evidence of adding to the knowledge of the learner. A grade of "D" or "F" indicates falling short in relation to the above listed criteria and/or a serious misunderstanding of or failure to meet the basic objectives of a given assignment. CCOE Conceptual Framework for Professional Preparation The faculty members of the Charter College of Education have adopted the organizing theme of "Preparing Educators to Serve the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Population of Urban Schools and Related Institutions of the 21st Century" for all programs for professional educators at California State University, Los Angeles. Part of this professional preparation involves learning to use microcomputers, multimedia resources, and software in the classroom. Prerequisite Technology Requirements For formal admission to credential, certificate, or Masters Degree programs in the Charter College of Education, each student must: 1. Own or have ample access to a computer (e.g., in CSULA computer labs, or at home or work) 2. Have general knowledge of the operation and care of a computer, computer hardware/software, and be able to implement some basic troubleshooting techniques (e.g., check connections, restart the computer, etc.) 3. Have an account (available free of charge to all CSULA students) file:///c /Documents%20and%20Settings/Robert%20Sandberg/My%20Documents/!!!!RAS/!Websites/working-instructional/pages/Courses/EDIT300_spr07/default.html (12 of 14)3/22/2007 2:28:56 PM

13 4. Have a basic understanding of how to use the Internet Students should anticipate that their use of these skills will be integrated within courses in their programs. Students who fail to meet any of the above expectations are strongly advised to take an introductory computer course before they are formally admitted to the Charter College of Education. CCOE Expectations for Student Conduct The faculty members of the Charter College of Education view student conduct as a serious matter. The Charter School faculty members assume that all students will conduct themselves as mature citizens of the campus community and will conduct themselves in a manner congruent with university policies and regulations. Inappropriate conduct is subject to discipline as provided for in Title 5, California Code of Regulations (see student conduct: rights and responsibilities, and student discipline, CSULA General Catalog). Academic honesty is expected of all students in the Charter College, in accordance with University policy. There are established university reporting procedures if a student is suspected of committing an academically dishonest act. Students taking computer lab courses are expected to arrive on time and remain for the entire scheduled class period. Students and faculty members alike are to refrain from bringing food or drink into computer labs. CCOE Policy Statement of Reasonable Accommodation The Charter College of Education faculty members fully support the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The members of the faculty will provide reasonable accommodation to any student with a disability who is registered with the Office of Students file:///c /Documents%20and%20Settings/Robert%20Sandberg/My%20Documents/!!!!RAS/!Websites/working-instructional/pages/Courses/EDIT300_spr07/default.html (13 of 14)3/22/2007 2:28:56 PM

14 with Disabilities (OSD) who needs and requests accommodation. The faculty may wish to contact the OSD to verify the presence of a disability and confirm that accommodation is necessary. The OSD will arrange and provide for the accommodation. Reasonable accommodation may involve allowing a student to use an interpreter, note taker, or reader; accommodation may be needed during class sessions and for administration of examinations. The intent of the ADA in requiring consideration of reasonable accommodation is not to give a particular student an unfair advantage over other students, but simply to allow a student with disability to have an equal opportunity to be successful. Computer Lab Locations CSULA has a number of resources for computer users. To visit the CSULA webpage that describes and locates Open Access computer labs and their hours of operation click here or copy and paste the following URL into your web browser: calstatela.edu/academic/aa/ess/oal file:///c /Documents%20and%20Settings/Robert%20Sandberg/My%20Documents/!!!!RAS/!Websites/working-instructional/pages/Courses/EDIT300_spr07/default.html (14 of 14)3/22/2007 2:28:56 PM
