Remember, this is aboutlearning and most important, learninghow to integrate the technology intoyour own classroom.
DED 318: Challenge, Project, & Problem Based Learning
The purpose of this course is integrate technology into teaching practices through communication and learning activities that servecurriculum objectives and educational goals, to enhance learning for your students. The goal of DED 318 is to help you become a moreeffective teacher — not simply more computer literate — and toprovide a learning context that interests, excites, and challenges youto think and talk about effective teaching practices and in what wayscontent delivery can benefit from the use of technology.
Be warned
, the tools available to you will always be changing.You will have to continue to learn if you are to become a techliterate teacher! This requires you to be an effective independentlearner. You must manage your time.
 Remember you will expect your ownstudents to do their work when it is assigned.
Do not wait until the lastminute to do your projects in this class. Most of our assignmentstake time and thought.
Yes, you can use an iPad for assignments, infact, the Monday 5:30-7:30 section is iPads only. If youhave an iPad, I encourage you to switch to the iPad sectionof class.
It is impossible to only use free apps, therefore, you willbe will required to purchase a few apps, but the majority will beFREE apps. But hey, apps are very cheap by comparison anddidn’t you have to buy software for your computer, so in the schemeof things, Apps for your iPad are a bargain at 99¢ to less than$10.00 So, buying a few Apps should not be a big problem,especially if you are really want to master your iPad and use itproductively and in your classroom. Right now, in the state of Kansas, there are more schools using iPads than computers, evenright here in Manhattan. In fact, there are upwards of 100 schoolsin Kansas that are 1:1 iPads. And 100’s more with mobile carts of them.
