Course Description:
EDU207 Technology in Education: Prerequisites: EDU203 and CS140 or permission of instructor. An introduction to the technology of the classroom, including instructional media and computers. Emphasis on effective use of media, operation of equipment, production of resources, and selection and evaluation of hardware and software. There will be an opportunity to work on the education portfolio. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
  As a facilitator, my objective is to support your learning and provide opportunities for you to gain knowledge through self-study, interaction with me and your peers, and through meaningful learning activities in which you are actively engaged.  I encourage lively discussions and a focus on learning to meet the diverse needs of students in your classrooms. I also encourage creativity in your planning, as well as a solid educational focus. I will provide guidance, but the learning is up to you.  I expect learners to ask questions, seek knowledge, and take the opportunity to further their skills, even beyond the scope of the assigned material.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Demonstrates an understanding of technology operations and concepts.
  2. Plans and designs effective learning environments and experiences supported by information and instructional technology.
  3. Implements curriculum plans that include methods and strategies for applying informational and instructional technology to maximize student learning.
  4. Applies technology to facilitate a variety of effective assessment and evaluation strategies.
  5. Uses technology to enhance personal productivity and professional practice.

Core Assessment:

Class Assessment:
 

A major portion of the grade in this class will be assessing the student's ability to incorporate technology into lesson plans and proficiency with technology. All other work completed for this course - attendance, participation in class, student's cooperation and attitude- will be considered when determining the grade assignment as it applies to student performance.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
 

Late assignments will not be accepted for credit unless arrangements have been made in advance with the instructor. Full or partial credit may be awarded at the discretion of the instructor depending on the circumstances that resulted in the assignment being turned in late.   I deduct 10% a day for three days and do not accept the assignment after that time.
 
I require verification of a justifiable reason (extenuating circumstances) for late submission (doctor note, employer note, police report of accident, obituary, etc.).

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
 

All assignments and lab projects are to be computer generated.

Students must recognize that technology can create problems such as printers that run out of ink or hard drives crash. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to a disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes. Technology malfunctions do not excuse late assignments.
 
When absences do occur, you must inform your instructor through email in order to receive an excused absence. It is your responsibility to obtain and turn in the work missed.

All assignments and lab projects are to be computer generated.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2012-2013 Undergraduate Catalog Page 97

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2012-2013 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
ONLINE NOTE: Students must participate in an academically related activity on a weekly basis in order to be marked present in an online class. Examples of academically-related activities include but are not limited to: contributing to an online discussion, completing a quiz or exam, completing an assignment, initiating contact with a faculty member to ask a course related question, or using any of the learning management system tools.
