Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Teaching with Technology.
- I want to thank you for joining me throughout this course, Foundations of Teaching with Technology. Let's look at some next steps. First and foremost, I hope you'll keep coming back for ideas and strategies, this course will be here when you need it. If you're looking for other lynda.com courses that compliment what you've learned here about teaching with technology then here are a few to check out. First, look at these three courses that cover both teaching and technology, iPad Classroom Fundamentals with Laurie Burruss, Instructional Design Essentials: Creating Video Training with Garrick Chow, and Google Apps for Educators with Aaron Quigley.
Next, you might just want to know more about a technology I mentioned and how to use it. These three are a good place to start, Screencasting Fundamentals with David Rivers, Learning Management System Fundamentals with Aaron Quigley, and Up and Running with Twitter with Maria Langer, or maybe you want to dive more deeply into teaching and learning topics. Here are some titles to review, Visual Thinking Strategies with Philip Yenawine, The Neuroscience of Learning with Britt Andreatta, and Classroom Management Fundamentals with Aaron Quigley.
If you want to know about other good sources of information about teaching with technology I can start you off with a couple. Whether you teach K-12 or higher ed classes, edutopia.org by the George Lucas Educational Foundation provides case stories of teaching with technology in different settings. In a couple of the movies in this course I've mentioned MERLOT, or the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching, in addition to the hundreds of resources shared by teachers around the world they also have a companion site called ELIXR.
Those digital case stories include the process the teachers went through to integrate technology. Both Edutopia and MERLOT have communities you can join to stay engaged as you try out new technologies for teaching. Last, I hope you'll share how you've put into practice what you've learned. My personal Twitter handle is @KevinKelley0, follow me to get more ideas and examples, I'll tweet them using the hashtag #TeachWTech. I'm also hoping to write as book, so follow me if you want to see announcements about my progress on that front.
For your part, give me a shout, and tell me what you think of the course, let me know if there are other topics you really wanted to see, or just say hello. I look forward to hearing from you.
Author Kevin Kelly explains how learning outcomes can be adapted to support technology in the classroom, and guides educators through selecting the appropriate technology for their activity, module, or class. Then he shows how to apply technology in three key areas: finding, creating, and sharing content with students; facilitating classroom activities; and assessing learning inside the classroom or online.
- Including technology in your learning outcomes
- Applying Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles
- Finding and creating content and instructional materials
- Enhancing lectures and presentations with technology
- Getting students involved
- Facilitating in-class activities
- Assessing learning
- Teaching effectively online
