Classroom Computer Applications
Spring 2012 marks my fourth Instructional Technology class: Classroom Computer Applications. I already like this class. We are encouraged (heavily) to bring out smartphones and laptops to class, as we will be using them in class!
Now, part of me never has any idea what to expect from a class, but I think that using our technology in the class leads to what I hope to learn through the class: how exactly to integrate technology successfully in our instruction. I’ve learned in my other IT classes Why, When, and a little bit of What technology to use, but I really hope this class helps me learn How to use it.
So, there’s what I expect from this class! I’m sure we’ll be blogging for this class, so please, check out what I have to say and leave comments so I don’t feel like I’m talking to nobody!
(Edit: After reading up on the Apple Education Event that happened earlier today, where they just announced iBooks 2 and their new digital textbook, and iBooks Author, I’m hoping we can spend sometime looking at what is next for technology integration. What was announced today could easily be the next step in 1-1 computing, and I’d really like to have a closer look at it!
