Educational Psychology 556: Analysis of Advanced Instructional Technologies

The goal of this inquiry-based course is for you, as an educator, to define and to begin to answer the question “what does the future of learning look like”? What will education be like in 2025? In doing so, you will be asked to critically consider emergent and advanced learning technologies such as Web 2.0 media and other digital technologies, and how their integration in the classroom may transform the way we teach and the way students learn and what a future learning environment may look like. To do this, you will bedesigning the classroom or learning space of tomorrow. The focus of the course has you exploring and evaluating advanced technologies and the means by which educators learn about them and sustain them in a learning environment. Your goal is to determine how best to engage these technologies and in so doing, determine new ways to construct and share knowledge. This course is designed to assist you in identifying, analyzing and evaluating new media and digital technology so that you determine exemplary practices in the uses of advanced instructional technologies as they relate to the learning environment. The course aims to provide you with practical experiences that are framed within theories related to blended learning, digital (and other new) literacies, ubiquitous learning, and creativity.

Educational Psychology 457: Computer Use in Education

This course is designed to help enhance your understanding of computers in the schools. This course looks at computers in the broadest sense and considers a variety aspects of technologies and digital media that impact pedagogy, curriculum, and student learning. In this course, we will consider the context of computing by exploring the history of computing, what is currently occurring in the schools, and how technologies and student expectations are encouraging teachers to redefine the classroom experience. The main goal of this course is to enable you to develop a flexible and working knowledge of computers as educational resources in order to better reach your students — students of the 21st century.

Educational Psychology 590ML: Mobile Learning in Education

This course is designed to engage students in critically thinking of how mobile learning impacts learning environments. We all have come to recognize the proliferation of handheld learning devices in our daily lives and a steady, albeit slow, increase of them utilized as instructional and learning tools, but as educators we need to understand both the strengthens and challenges of mobile learning in order to advocate for pedagogy and resources necessary to meaningfully support it. In practice, this means students will collectively and individually explore a number of example of mobile learning, tools/technologies that support mobile learning, design a mobile app that can enhance a context specific learning envirnoment, read widely from a number of traditional and non-traditional sources, and create their own community of practice around this topic.

Graduate: Face-to-face

Educational Psychology 590LMT: Learning with Mobile Technologies

This course  is designed to engage students in all disciplines to critically thinking of how mobile technologies impact learning and learning impacts learning environments.  We all have come to recognize the proliferation of handheld learning devices in our daily lives and a steady, albeit slow, increase of them utilized as instructional and learning tools, but as educators we need to understand both the strengthens and challenges of mobile learning in order to advocate for pedagogy and resources necessary to meaningfully support it.  In practice, this means students will collectively and individually explore a number of example of mobile learning, tools/technologies that support mobile learning, design a mobile app that can enhance a context specific learning environment, read widely from a number of traditional and non-traditional sources, and create their own community of practice around this topic.  Course conversations will be framed around Daniel Willingham’s book, Why Students Don’t like School (2009), which examines the human mind and will allow us to see how the introduction of mobile devices may alter how we need to teach, learn, design, and engage in learning environments.
