I know that a number of students are looking to complete their graduate certificate in K-12 instructional computing applications, and due to low enrollment this summer, we had to cancel IDT 7063. However, we will be offering this course during the fall 2013 semester. Here is a brief description of the course.
IDT 7063 – Seminar in Instructional Computing
Catalog Description: Analysis of issues and trends related to instructional computing and instructional technology in K-12 classrooms.
Prerequisite: Six hours of coursework in IDT.
Course Dates: August 24, 2013 – December 12, 2013
Instructor: Dr. Michael M. Grant (me)
IDT 7063 in Fall 2013 will focus on leadership for instructional technology in K-12 schools. IDT 7063 will align with the tenets of ISTE’s National Educational Technology Standards for teachers (NETS-T) and for technology coaches (NETS-C). In addition to examining current trends and issues with integrating technology, such as one-to-one programs and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD/BYOT) policies, we will consider broader grade-level or school-level issues, such as digital citizenship curricula, levels of technology integration, funding initiatives through small grants, and teacher professional development.
This course is currently undergoing a major revision and update to reflect the most current issues, trends, and skills appropriate for technology integrators. So, the syllabus is in flux. If you have any questions, though, please feel free to email me. I hope you’ll consider registering for this course and please share it with anyone you feel may benefit form this information.
