The landscape of educational technology is constantly changing and it’s easy to feel like you don’t know where to start. The Practical Ed Tech Jumpstart was designed for you. This three week online course will walk you through a simple yet powerful framework for using technology in your classroom. You’ll come away from this course with a playbook of activities that you can adapt to use in almost any classroom setting from elementary school through high school.
In the first week we’ll take a look at a handful of tools and strategies for helping students conduct better online research. Then we’ll look at methods and tools for improving communication between you, your students, and your students’ parents.
The second week of the course has us looking at methods for conducting fun and powerful formative assessments through the use of laptops, Chromebooks, iPads, and mobile phones. We’ll then dive into ways that students can help each other learn through the use of technology. The second week wraps up with a look at some simple podcasting activities that you can do with your students.
Finally, in week three we’ll help students show what they know through videos that they create. Those videos will ultimately become a part of the digital portfolios that we will learn how to create before the course ends.
