GED 526 - Special Topics: The Literacy Technology Connection: Reflective Essays and Multimedia

Join an upper elementary teacher and a technology integration specialist to explore reflective essays and students’ use of multimedia technology. The course focuses on Writing Standard 1.12 and the Educational Technology Expectation 5-6: 4, but many other literacy and educational technology standards are addressed. Participants will use Audacity and Windows Movie Maker to compose their essays with audio and visuals.   This class is ideal for a classroom teacher and technology integration specialist to take as a team or individually.  We will also examine the collaboration behind the scenes which allows this type of teaching and learning to be successful. Use of a laptop (running Windows XP or higher) is strongly encouraged.  Although Audacity and MovieMaker will be the focus software, iMovie and GarageBand can also be used. 

Credits: 3 cr.

Miscellaneous Notes:
Laptops required.  Bring to first class.
