Welcome to your Arcadia University course, ED565 – Introduction to Instructional Technology. The general focus of the course is to promote collaborative,interdisciplinary, and multi-level instruction; students will construct these activitiesby using the following: wiki software, word processor, spreadsheets, andpresentation software. All assignments will be introduced with the intent of modeling integration into curricular areas. The course will focus on theory as well as practice, and challenge you through real-world problem-based scenarios. Please try to make connections between what istaking place in your classroom to the content being discussed. If you are notcurrently teaching, I would like you to address issues as if you were actuallyteaching in a classroom. The second part of the course will deal with obtainingspecific competencies with respect to technology applications.
