Here we are 12 years into the new millennium but we are still talking about the 21st Century and the changes that need to be made, so why is that? Change takes time and adopting new pedagogy and daily practices takes a new level of comfort that isn't present for many of us. So how do we get there? In this module, participants will examine their current stage of development in the transformation to 21st Century classroom and their own change process while gathering ideas for implementing new technology strategies into current pedagogy. This module, which is geared toward novice technology users, will include activities to help participants find new tools to bring engaging multimedia lessons to their students that met them were they are, as well as help build a personal learning network to provide support and inspiration for moving forward.
--Technology requirements include the ability to send and receive email with and without attachments, use a word processing program such as Microsoft Word, and access and navigate the Internet, including viewing video clips from YouTube and other video streaming website.
--Registrations must be made before the end of the month; participants will begin on the 6th of the next month. For example: to begin a module in May, a registration must be in before April 30.
Note: On the 6th registrants should look for an email which will include login instructions and a link to the online classroom, Blackboard. If the 6th falls on a weekend or holiday, registrants will receive login information on the following business day.
