Teaching/Training with Technology-Part 1
I know at least my twitter followers are aware that I have been incorporating technology into my teaching for a while now as they have watch several posts go by with #UIS431 in them. However, if you don't learn something new every day we tend to get a little stale. I am working on a Master Certification in Online Teaching. This summer I am taking course 3 & 4 out of 6 required towards that goal. I am learning about student assessment and teaching technology. As homework for the technology course, over the next seven weeks I will be taking a class requiring me to blog more than I do (currently once a month) and specifically highlighting new technologies that I am learning about. Specifically, my blog is going to be my scrapbook with at least the following items:
-a tool for asynchronous communication
-a tool for synchronous communication
-an example of ready-made content
-some content you've produced on your own
-whatever your produced in the 7th week (survey or teach-back)
-an elective .... something new you'd like to try
-a link to your Diigo account,
-showing at least 3 bookmarks you saved during the term.
-your 23 Things post
So I tell you this today as my regular "HR" followers might wonder what is going on but as usual I will definitely try to relate it back to our field in one way or the other so as not to bore you. Besides not knowing what Diigo account is there is alot I will be learning and look forward to sharing.
