, a few comments about my approach to learning. I do NOT consider myself theonly teacher in the class. Instead I see myself as a coach and as someone who is responsible forcreating and maintaining an environment in which learning can take place.
, I do not believe in “burp back education.” Research shows conclusively that factslearned are forgotten in nearly the same amount of time that it took to learn them
unless youuse them.
Experience is a great teacher. You cannot learn to ride a bicycle without A)

Youmust be an eager learner.
 If you are not excited about learning yourself, you are preparing for the wrong  profession
. The most important activity in which you will be engaged this semester
is learning 
.If you are not excited by learning, and if you do not take it seriously, your grade will likelyreflect that as a way to suggest that you should changecareers. But, if you are excited by learning, anddemonstrate that throughout the semester, you will dowell in this course – and will probably be an excellentteacher.
, you are in training for one of our society’s mostimportant professions. You will be expected to act like aprofessional. This means you must do your work

Attendance Policy for DED 318
 Attendance in this class is EXTREMELY important and that  you do the assignments each day as they are assigned. Theeducational experience that takes place in class cannot be fullyduplicated if you are not present in class.
it isextremely important that you watch, read and 
use thetutorials
provided with each lesson. Just trying to figure out what to do by reading the assignment instructions is not enough. Remember this is about learning and more important, learning how to integrate the technology into your own classroom. Thetutorials and examples will provide you with the knowledge youneed to integrate into the classroom.
, it is important to have
. When choices are given,Pick projects that are fun. If you have f un you will performmuch better!
This course is project based.
It is not a burp back course. You will be required to learnhow to use current technology tools. And you will be required touse those tools in the projects. We will use many Google toolsthroughout the course, but we will not limit ourselves to thosetools alone. When you enter teaching in one or two years theGoogle tools should be very valuable to you. But, be warned,the tools available to you will change. You will have to continueto learn if you are to become a tech literate teacher!
Thisrequires you to be an effective independent learner.
 You must manage your time appropriately. You MUST NOTsubmit your work late! Remember you will expect your ownstudents to turn in work on time in your classes. Do not waituntil the last minute to do your work in this class. Most of ourprojects take time and thought. Your work will reflect it and wewill probably see you again next semester in DED 318! Veryexpensive lesson!
Yes, you can use an iPad for assignments
.Each assignment will have the alternative for using iPads.Sometimes that will require you to purchase apps. But hey, theyare cheap and didn’t you also have to buy software for yourcomputer. So, buying a few Apps should not be a bit problem,especially if you are really want to learn to use that iPadproductively. I will also make recommendations for apps everyiPad owner should have to be productive.
