IT6230 – Internet In The Classroom

itlogoFor the past couple of years now I have used this blog as a part of my IT6230 – Internet In The Classroom course that I teach (usually each Winter and Summer semesters). Well, the Winter semester is upon us again and, in fact, today is the first day of classes. This semester – like past semesters – the course is being offered online.

The official description of the course reads:

Students will use a variety of tools from the read/write web and explore their potential in K-12 education. Students will also examine the use of online learning in the K-12 classroom.

The course objectives are:

Upon completion of this course learners will be able to:

  1. evaluate emerging technologies for use in the classroom.
  2. develop an Internet-based instructional module.
  3. design web-based resources for use in the classroom.
  4. examine methods of online course delivery and instruction

One of the activities that the students will be doing from the very beginning of the class is contributing to their blogs based upon a weekly prompt that I post. For the first half of the class, I will be posting those prompts to a class blog. However, in about four or five weeks when we switch to the K-12 online learning I will begin to post those prompts to this blog. If there are other people who wish to participate and respond to these prompts I would encourage you to do so (and send a trackback to the prompt entry if you do).
